Eggless Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Jelly

I always love watching Master chef Australia. More so because there’s no unnecessary negativity or drama in it. The wonderful and encouraging hosts are the icing on the cake. In the last season, I was really impressed with Reynold’s dessert skills. Now you know where I drew my inspiration to make this dish 🙂 After my successful attempt at making Orange sorbet, the next mission was Chocolate Mousse. My initial plan was to have the centre with pomegranate coulis. On discussing my idea with D, he suggested to use jelly instead of coulis, as he was craving for it. As…

Orange Sorbet in Chocolate Shell

Ever since I saw cake sphere moulds being used in cookery shows, I had made up my mind in buying one. Every time I went hunting for the same, it was out of stock. After several futile attempts, decided to buy them online. So, following a much long wait, I finally got it 2 days back. Having made up my mind on using chocolate as the casing, the next thought was what to use as filling. As luck would have D made it easier for me. Just before leaving for school, he had a request. “Mama, today I want something…

Cake Pops

Cake pops are such cute little treats to look at!! They come in various colours and designs. While making the cupcakes for the blog anniversary, I had made up my mind to make some cake pops as well and so had kept aside some cake and buttercream frosting.

Chocolate Panna Cotta

It feels like I have been away from this space for ages. I couldn’t help being roped in for an event, in which I had to sing a couple of songs. Once in, it was practice, practice and more of it. Though I enjoy singing, I really missed the Blog and the opportunity to post new recipes. I think that’s
