Festive Feasting

Festive Feasting

There was a point (about a week ago) when I thought I would never get a chance to sit down ever again. When falling into bed still wearing kitchen whites and covered in little bits of packing tape was going to be life now. But guess what? I’ve finished- it’s Christmas Eve and I have the next few days just to eat and drink with my family and watch Christmas films and complain about the too many Mars in the Celebrations tub. So, having spent the entire of December not sitting down to eat properly and despairing of my food choices, I will be feasting.

Graphic Gift Guide

Our marshmallows are mostly bought as gifts. Which means we spend a lot of time thinking about gifting. We like to think of our marshmallows as the perfect pressie- quirky, stylish, bold, different. And, crucially, under a tenner. So when it comes to choosing a creative gift for Secret Santa or sensational stocking stuffers we thought we would share our expertise. So here's our graphic gift guide- a collection of equally cool, typographically bold, beautifully designed gifts that are, also, under 10 quid. 
Baileys Festive Hot Chocolate

Baileys Festive Hot Chocolate

Baileys and Christmas go together like Me and Seasonal Excess ( I've never really been a one glass of wine type of person) So when Baileys said they were going to be serving toasted marshmallows with their signature drinks this Christmas- well, I just had to rock up with a few suggestions of my own. As part of the Baileys Treat Collective I've whipped up one hell of a festive treat- A rich Parisian style hot chocolate finished with a toasted Baileys marshmallow bejewelled with dried figs, pistachio nibs and a glint of gold.

Outdoor Toasting Experience

It’s dusky, cold enough to see your breath and you’re strolling through a stunning landscape you wouldn't normally be allowed in. Not at night. But for 6 weeks it’s backlit, uplit, strung with lanterns and sparkling flashes. An arresting soundscape and neon projections envelope the darker corners. Sounds magical right? Well, that's how we like to do Christmas. We’re back at some of the UK’s most beautiful attractions with our Toasting Marshmallow Experience and we can’t wait.

 If you need me you'll find me over here, brimming with excitement that I’m now part of the Bailey’s Treat Collective. Baileys have a knack for creating the most decadent of desserts whipped, drizzled and just oozing with Irish cream. Have a little peek at their enviable Instagram page to really get you reaching for the bottle. If you haven’t tried Baileys in anything other then a glass then let me and the rest of the Treat Collective lure you in. From punchy coldbrew coffees and delicate patisserie to my showstopping s’more.

5 tips for a Spooky Malloween

Throwing a spooky celebration this weekend? We LOVE a Malloween party here as it gives us the perfect excuse to get a bit more creative with our confectionery. To throw a Halloween bash with a grown up edge it’s best to skip the themed and stick to the seasonal. So here are my top tips for sweetening your party with grown up marshmallows....
Cheat your way to perfect autumn bakes.

Cheat your way to perfect autumn bakes.

Because autumn is the most sensual of seasons it makes me want to embrace flavours that pack a warmer punch and tastes that deliver comfort. It’s the time for slow cooking, for stewing and a slow bake. But it’s also the time of year when I want to go on long walks before it gets too cold or for sitting in the pub all afternoon drinking red. So, if you want to cheat your way to producing some lovely Autumnal treats without having to while away the whole day in the kitchen – here’s my top 3 cheats for seasonal deliciousness. 
The Perfect Hot Chocolate

The Perfect Hot Chocolate

A mug is just a mug, right? A vessel for hot drinks, we have mismatched ones, chipped one, maybe we have a favourite one. But, essentially, they’re all pretty much the same. Well, no. That’s not right at all. The mug you choose affects everything about your drink, how it tastes, how it feels, and the whole experience. So this year I wanted to find the perfect hot chocolate mug and WOAH did I stumble down a rabbit hole of pintrest, instagram design blog blurriness.
