There's nothing trifling about a good trifle! To call a dessert a trifle it must have layers of cake, cream and fruit, and that leaves a lot of room for classic and creativity. i. Simple Lemon Blueberry & Coconut Trifles - a simple non-cooked lemon & coconut cream is layered with lady fingers and fresh blueberries, so that we can get comfortable with the texture and layering principle behind trifle. We highlight how to use fresh coconut, and its difference from dried. ii. Classic English Sherry Trifle - More involved, this trifle is made of a homemade custard, sponge cake and fruit compote, assembled in a traditional footed trifle bowl. iii. Triple Chocolate Cherry Trifle - Trifle suits being dressed up, and a chocolate variation is fancy and festive, but respects the elements that makes a trifle a trifle.

traditional cookie. This episode demonstrates the cake-like batter and how to achieve the best, fluffiest results - featuring some original as well as old-fashioned variations. i. German Pfeffernusse - one of my favourite cookies of all time, these spiced cookies are small and dipped in a hot sugar glaze which sets, adding a nice crunch. Quite a different technique. ii. Little Pumpkin Spice Cake Cookies - a fluffy cake batter is dropped by spoonfuls, to be baked into tender soft cookies, topped with a creamy frosting. iii. Chocolate Whoopie Pies - Cake cookies make this retro dessert - two rich chocolate cake cookies are sandwiched with a peanut butter frosting, making them absolutely irresistible.

Muffins are a staple for mornings and snack breaks, and their small portioning make them an easy treat. i. Healthy Bran Mini Muffins - a staple recipe for a healthy muffin that also tastes good! ii. Classic Blueberry Streusel Muffins - a bakeshop essential, these fluffy muffins are packed with fresh blueberries and have a nice crunchy streusel topping. iii. Chocolate Banana Muffins with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread - a muffin can definitely be a decadent treat! Akin to a molten-centre chocolate cake or a filled doughnut, these rich sweet muffins have a creamy hazelnut butter centre to them, and are slathered with a homemade version of Nutella (no frosting, though, or we'd have to call it a cupcake!)

Waffles are definitely a part of a baker's repertoire and that woven waffles shape is now known the world around. Here we explore North American, Italian & Belgian styles of waffles. i. Big Buttermilk Breakfast Waffles - Ready for a fun weekend breakfast? Then these waffles are for you! This basic recipe gets you comfortable with what makes a good waffle of this style - crispy on the outside & soft in the centre. ii. Italian Pizelle - These sweet, crisp wafer cookies use a special waffle iron and a particular recipe that also might remind you of a waffle ice cream cone. iii. Belgian Liege Waffles with Spiced Plums and White Chocolate Sauce - the Liege style of waffle is my personal favourite and can be purchased at street stalls everywhere in Belgium, served plain or dressed up for dessert. The yeast dough with little crystals of crunchy sugar that caramelize when cooked on the waffle iron make them truly special. Dressing them up with warm spiced plums and a white chocolate sauce makes them even mo

Fruit mousses are a staple in patisseries, and come in all sorts of colours and shapes. They can be a dessert on their own or part of a grand torte, and there are a number of ways to maximize the fruit flavour and pop of colour. i. Easy Lime Mousse - This fluffy and refreshing mousse is easy to make and looks so pretty. ii. Mango Coco:nut Mousse Tart - This tropical mousse tart uses a different technique to set the mousse inside a cookie shell. iii. Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Mousse Torte - This is a grande dame of tortes. A chocolate sponge cake is layered with a vibrant raspberry mousse and is finished with classic patisserie decor.

Pastry chefs are responsible for making their own ice cream in restaurants, and our creativity can really shine through. i. Green Apple Sorbet - Sorbets are made without dairy, so the singular flavour of the fruit shines through - I have great tricks for a sorbet that is smooth and refreshing. ii. Classic Chocolate Gelato & Ice Cream Cone - I became obsessed with chocolate gelato on a recent trip to Italy - dark and rich, you'd swear there was cream, but using only milk is the rule that qualifies a gelato. It's easy to make your own ice cream cones with a brown sugar batter and a twist to get them into their cone shape. iii. Ice Cream Sundae Cookie Cake - I can make this cake look like a giant Oreo - two layers of chocolate cookie (that will stay soft and sliceable even when frozen) are filled with a rich chocolate ripple ice cream - the classic, rich cream-based style.
