Sweet scary ghosts and gruesome eyeballs in Cake Pop form – let’s get some spooky Halloween baking going on!
Let’s talk Brownies – we love them! But…. some recipes can leave you underwhelmed and lacking the three things I think are ESSENTIAL in a good brownie – a thin papery crust on the top, a squidgy middle and a complete chocolatey taste.
This weekend far and wide we’re celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday, time to hang the bunting and wave those flags! However you’re joining in the celebrations my recipes for Bake with Stork would make a fab addition to your own Patrons Lunch!

With Mother’s Day and Easter coming up you might be in need of a quick easy and super delicious pudding, actually this pud doesn’t need an occasion for you to make it – celebrate the weekend with this treat too.
Served warm straight from the oven this pud is ideal to prepare ahead and bake in the oven whilst you sit down for a meal, soft melty choc chips and a squidgy cookie dough centre you’re bound to please everyone who’s come for tea!
A traditional Christmas recipe for a Yule log, just switched around a bit to turn it into a showstopper cake instead, I love the stripy inside it makes – a perfect winter dessert! It’s hugely rich and decadent (as you’ll see from the amount of chocolate needed) and the filling is a chocolate French buttercream.
Have you planned your Christmas desserts? You might need to squeeze these in somewhere – a simple luscious Baileys Chocolate Mousse and Shortbread Stars. If you need desserts to serve to Mums to be and the elderly (check and check) then you’ll need to avoid uncooked eggs and this little mousse is a great way to do just that!
