After making the cheesecake I had to have a go at making icecream! I decided to try using walnuts as well as cashews. I wondered if it would make a lot of difference to the texture but it didn’t. Still as creamy as ever.
This was my first attempt so I wouldn’t worry if you don’t the exact amounts of ingredients, give it a go with what you have!
Unfortunately, not the best presentation but there was no ice cream scoop 😦
For the caramel
130g pited dates (soaked in hot water until soft)
Tsp lemon juice
For the ice cream
270g walnuts (soaked in water for at least 4h)
200g cashews (soaked in water for at least 4h)
170g apple sauce
2 -3 tbs honey
1 tbs lemon
About 200ml water
Vanilla and cinnamon optional
To make the caramel place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Set aside.
For the icecream, place all the ingredients in a blender except the water, add the water gradually. You have enough when the mixture blends properly. It takes a while to get it going. Blend until its as smooth as can be.
Add some crushed walnuts of you like.
Layer the ice cream and the caramel into a tupperware and then swirl together and pop it in the freezer.
These flowers have all been made out of cold porcelain although I have followed sugar paste tutorials.
My boyfriend’s aunty (who we are staying with in Spain) makes necklaces and things out of cold porcelain using the same sugar craft tools as I have, so I decided to put the tutorials to the test.
No, this isn’t a joke or some ‘ohh I’ve used light cream cheese, so it’s healthy!” nonsence. This is actually real, even the most picky health crazed people would find this hard to deny. And the best part? It is delicious!
Scroll down for the tutorial.
I found this stamen tutorial and figured I could follow her steps but make them more like cherry blossom stamens.
My first attempt was unsuccessful. Continue reading
In hope of creating a wedding cake for my mother-kind-of-in-law I have begun researching how to make cherry blossoms out of sugar.
My sugar craft skills are definitely beginner, so far I have roses and swans to my name, however I am determined to give it a go.
This time its my boyfriends mum’s wedding. As soon as I heard I offered to make the cake, I have been hoping for another opportunity after being so happy with the last one.
Last summer my friend got married and I made her wedding cake.
It was the first time I ever made a tiered cake let alone one for a wedding!!
So, I began this blog….well, way to long ago! I managed a whole one post, oh and one draft. Whooo hoo! But now I am going to have another go, because I have realised where I went wrong.
