Earlier this year I photographed a styled shoot for the latest edition of Confetti Fair Magazine. Lots of beautifully created desserts on a very stylish table, all photographed in a fabulous warehouse setting! Here are some of my favourite images from the shoot.
You can find issue 6 of Confetti Fair Magazine in all good newsagents!
I have been busy in the kitchen once again and my latest Cookbook Crush is Cooking for Me and You, the latest release from Thermomix.
These delicious Chocolate + Zuccini Mini Loaves were perfect for a recent get together and ever so easy to prepare in the Thermomix that takes the hard work out of anything. You can find the recipe on page 117. Enjoy!
With Valentines Day just around the corner what better dessert is there to share with your special someone than decadent Chocolate Mousse and today I have the most amazing “healthy” chocolate mousse to share with you.
It is so easy to change a few ingredients around from the traditional chocolate mousse – pipe the mixture into your glass jar – add your strawberry on top and you have a dessert that looks just like the traditional mousse but it is way better for you!
This recipe was shared with me by my lovely nutritionalist Simone Kopkas from Health Wholistically. The mousse below was created by Dewi from Sweet Bloom Cakes and photographed by me! Enjoy!
With Fathers Day less than 2 weeks away I have some fun and simple ideas today to help with your Fathers Day Celebration on Sunday 7th September.
These very cute little Mini Pails can be found as part of the Styling Essentials Kits by Celebrations and Occasions, who put together gorgeous boxes of carefully curated party supplies and styling essentials for your special events!
I had a go at creating three different ideas using these pails. Use them as a sweet gift for dad or something to serve dessert in! There are really so many uses for this great piece.
Find them here as part of the Rustic Food Station Kit where you can see all the great items included in the kit (the forks and blackboard signs are part of the kit also).
A lovely little mini cactus from your local plan shop looks great in these pots – write your guests name on the blackboard and this can be used as a favour or a table setting.
2. DONUTS + COOKIES
Whose Dad doesn’t love donuts and when they come in the form of this cute cookie they are even better!
These fabulous cookies were made by Nicci from Frosted by Nicci and are great as a favour or to eat after your meal!
Dessert is always on the menu so why not use these pails to serve it in! Stamp your cutlery with your favourite words and you have the perfectly styled dessert.
I have made a no bake cheesecake to go in my pot but ice cream or mousse would work perfectly as well!
It was one of those beautiful Autumn days back in March when Gillian, Nicole and I headed to Logan Brae Apple Orchard in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales to do this shoot for Sweet Magazine. Armed with decadent desserts that Gillian had prepared, gorgeous florals by Thoughtful Petal and Nicole’s amazing props we had a blast creating this stunning set up in the clean fresh air between the apple trees!
Here are some of my favourite images from the day – you can find all the amazing recipes in the current issue of Sweet Magazine.
