Making Modelling Chocolate!

I have always wanted to use modelling chocolate to make cake decorations. It’s so much easier to blend than fondant, it’s smooth and unlike fondant, it actually tastes good! I also find it easier to make fondant figures out of modelling chocolate because it doesn’t crack or form elephant skin, and blending the seams with it is so much easier!

Peppermint Creams

Homemade Lucky Charms!

There are many of us who can not have Lucky charms because they are not halal/kosher/vegetarian. I have desperately wanted these as a child and would often read the ingredients over and over again in the vain hope that perhaps one day I shall see a ‘suitable for vegetarian’ sign or kosher gelatin on the…
