Easy Pavlova

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
Relatively easy Pav to make though I did encounter some hiccups,I made one big pav and found that after an hour baking and leaving it in the oven till it cools (as suggested in other reviews) my crust was nice and crispy but the marshmallow middle was too thick. I will try it as mini pavs next time, that should be able to counter the overly thick marshmallow middle. Did as other reviews suggested and reduced sugar to 1 cup, still too sweet for my liking (as other reviews suggested, yes it really does feel like its too sweet till your teeth hurt) so I can't imagine it at the original measurements. But then again, to each their own =)

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
Made a half batch as recommended by other reviews. Not a great consistency for piping unfortunately. The cream cheese frosting that comes with the Red Velvet Cupcakes on this website tastes much better, the difference being the addition of sour cream which goes great with cream cheese.

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
Tastes fine, but if you're looking for a shortcut to filling your cupcakes, this doesn't turn out quite right. What you get is more of a chocolate cupcake with a 'different coloured' centre, with the centre still being a chewy cakey cheese thing.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Pleasant enough, however it turned out to be pretty wet in the end and took on a more pudding-like quality instead of cake-y. The recipe called for tons of apples, so that might be the reason it was wet. Took on the other user suggestions of halving the oil to 1/2 cup and reducing the sugar to 1 1/2 cup, which I'm glad I did because I would not have wanted the cake to be even wetter and oilier than it was. Serving this does not look as pretty as a cake would, as it gets pretty messy when cut due to its texture and all the apples getting in the way.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
Had a only slightly healthier version with wholemeal flour and olive oil. The other reviews were right, it needs slightly more sugar, however I don't like my baking to be less sweet so it was good for me. My muffins got really moist really fast, my only complaint would be the top of the muffin was too moist so a little less pretty. Baked an extra 5 minutes on top of the time stated in the recipe.

Luscious Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
rave reviews from everyone who tried it. Catered to an event for 200 people and they couldn't get enough of it, the guests even came round back to the kitchen to eat up the cut off sides of the cake! Topping is pretty flexible, I usually half it. And as recommended by the other reviews, add more lemon juice to the cake. This recipe is definitely a keeper

Apple Lemon with Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
My family loves this muffins, but I found it a bit wet due to the apples. I also prefer more cinnamon in this recipe as the sprinkling on top is not enough for me. But overall it tastes good
