Beauty and the Beast is definitely in my top 5 Disney films, and to mark the premier of the new film I decided to get all creative with these 3 Beauty and the Beast themed DIYs.
Dinglehopper Cakepop Pintrest attempt!
A few weeks ago I saw a video on Facebook showing how to make Little Mermaid inspired cake pops. I really liked the concept and wanted to try it, but like always, I got distracted by some sort of food and/or wine and completely forgot all about it, until my sister’s best friend shared the video and tagged me in it asking me to make them for her.
Its official, I am 24, going on 4. I just love anything magical, and at the moment my favourite magical thing is 110% Unicorns.
Just before Christmas, I treated myself to some of those fancy looking Unicorn Horn makeup brushes, because I am a damn fairy princess and no one is going to tell me otherwise.
Oh my god. I have seen these magic cakes all over the place, and just had to make one!
I love nutella, which is essentially chocolate and hazelnuts, so what better combination than that for a magic cake.
Not gonna lie, when I heard ‘Magic Cake’ my brain first went to, ‘I hope that means it tastes amazing and has like minus 100 calories.’ then I panicked thinking the ingredients may contain some illegal substances… neither is the case.
You can’t beat a good cheesecake. Its like happiness on a plate. Just thinking about it is making me smile… I know, I’m sad.
My mum makes the best cheesecake, literally no doubt.
All you need is;
Lets get one thing straight – they are scary because of the poor quality. No other reason!
I really enjoy all things Halloween, from horrors to pumpkin carving and everything in between, so I took the opportunity to dust off my old cake pop maker (once I’d found it – who’d have thought that I could manage to lose a bright pink cake pop maker in my tiny flat?!)
I started with the greatest of ideas. I honest to god thought I was going to be the Michaelangelo of Cake Pops. Sadly this is not the case, and they ended up looking like a cheap, poorly executed, knockoff Picaso.
If there is one thing I love more than DIY arts and crafts, its food.
A few years ago my sister taught me how to make a cake/brownie in a mug. It was the single best thing she’s ever taught me, to be honest that’s not difficult.
I am so so so excited to share this one with you!
Ages and ages ago, at my parents house, I was rummaging in the cupboards for something sweet to eat… not a lot has changed. Just as I was about to admit defeat, my mum suggested I use the condensed milk in the cupboard to make something.
I hopped online and browsed through quick recipes using Condensed Milk, and thats when I found the holey grail for recipes…. Microwave Fudge.
Being a microwave fudge novice, I played it safe with just a chocolate fudge, and it was delightful. This time I wanted to be more adventurous. This time I wanted to make M&M and Salted Pretzel fudge.
Want to try it too? Here’s what you’ll need…
1 tin of sweetened condensed milk. (400 grams /14 Ounces)
300 grams of Chocolate chips (12 Ounces) I used a mix of milk and white because I’m a rebel.
1 bag of M&Ms (or any chocolate or filling you want) I opted for 50/50 normal and crispy M&Ms
1 bag of Salted Pretzels
1 heat proof container, lined with foil/baking parchment or clingfilm
1 Microwave Bowl
This is what I did…
- Pour the Condensed milk and chocolate chips into the microwave bowl, give a quick stir
- Heat in Microwave in 30 – 1 minute blasts until chocolate is full melted.
- cool for 30 seconds
- add in M&Ms and lightly crushed up Pretzels and stir (hold some filling back for toppings..
- Pour into the heatproof container and allow to cool for a minute or two
- Sprinkle toppings to decorate
- Allow to cool, I put mine in the fridge for quickness.
- Once full cooled, cut into chunks and enjoy!
Super easy and versatile. I think I’m going to do a peanut butter and chocolate one next time as a tribute to Reeses Cups, one of my mums favourites!
GBBO Series 8, I’m coming for you!
Let me know if you give it a go and what creations you make!
