Scanpan Accent Cookware - Solving a problem

by: Highland Homewares on

The problem with good quality saucepans and frypans is that they last forever, I've had my set for nearly 12 years now and they just will not die. This being the case it is important to purchase a range that you really like. I'm talking about the feel of the handle, the ability to see what's going on in the pot through the glass lid, and most importantly how it looks. This is why Highland Homewares have introduced a new Scanpan cookware range called "Accent" The beautiful thing about this range of cookware is it ticks all the boxes above.   ...read more

Cupcakery PART 2

by: Blog Administrator on

In the last post you saw just a few ideas for the actual basis of the cupcake and a few examples of how to put it all together. This time you're going to see a focus on decorations. Cupcakes with humor are always a crowd pleaser and a great way to start a conversation. There are many versions of TV dinner cupcake decorations, but this is my favourite combo: PEAS & CARROTS: you'll need RUNTS candies (separate the green round candies from the bunch and put the others aside), orange NOW AND LATER candies or STARBURST candies (cut into small bits), and green frosting of your   ...read more

Cupcakery

by: Blog Administrator on

No matter what the new trend is, cupcakes will always be a staple in the pastry world. Maybe it's the fun twist of frosting or the sprinkles..... There's always so much fun to be had and little things you can do differently even if you're using a box recipe (most of us do). One of my family's favourites is a black forest cupcake. Super easy and presentable for parties. Use the darkest chocolate cake mix possible, we normally use devil's food. That's the boring part- the fun part is the toppings. You'll need the typical Black Forest fixings- cherry pie filling, and vanilla frosting  ...read more

Fun Summer Kid's Birthday Cake Idea

by: Blog Administrator on

Kid's birthday's are always a blast, mainly because you get to give them those little details that you missed out on when you were their age. There are so many versions of cakes that it's hard to decide what to do. I suppose I'm lucky that my son likes the easiest to make one the best. Even the girls in his class get a kick out of this one. If you want to be the 'cool mom', you'll have to try this cake out. Just remember that this particular cake is more of a pudding texture than it is a cake, so you'll use smaller-wider plastic cups and spoons rather than plates and forks. One final ment  ...read more
