Caramel Apple Cheesecake 1

I don’t need the cynical voice in my head when I’m browsing baking ingredients.  I have Beardy Mum.  It will inevitably occur when I’m home, browsing Target or Walmart, possibly with a moaning Beardy Fiance in tow.  He will have wandered off to the tool section, while I try to focus in on the seasonal […]

Polar bear cupcakes

There has been a change in British supermarkets since the success of the Great British Bake Off.  Before, chocolate chips were thin on the ground and a even cake mixes were limited to classic Victoria sponges.  But I’ve seen more and more interesting and creative baking accessories, to the point that, while browsing for a […]

Ice Cream Bark 1

According to conventional wisdom, it’s starting to be a bit cold for ice cream (myself and Beardy Fiance will probably be drinking some pumpkin spice lattes on our way to visit the British Museum today.)  While I never find it too cold, I accept that other people would probably give me a bit of a […]
