Mint Marble

So first lets address the elephant in the room, I've been neglecting you. It's been a while since I posted, but I'm creating a schedule for myself which means that hopefully posts on here will be a lot more regular.

Today's offering is a creation of my own, a lovely mint chocolate cake, covered in mint flavoured buttercream and a chocolate ganache, topped with crumbled and quartered Oreos and mint buttercream covered toffee popcorn.

The popcorn was a late but ultimately welcome addition as I was walking through Tescos deciding what to bake and wanting to put a twist on things. I was unsure whether to play it safe with sweet popcorn or it push the boat out a little and combine to seemingly unrelated flavours. The verdict? Perfection...

This little flavour jaunt has inspired me to be a little more adventurous when creating and adapting recipes, so I'm excited (and nervous) for what else I can come up with.

Make sure you listen to this lovely young lady's album, her voice is pure silk:

Until next time!
