Here at Sass & Belle we believe in keeping things quirky and that often means not doing things the conventional way. This year we decided to avoid the hard work of dismantling a pumpkin and skip straight to the fun – no pumpkins were harmed in the making of this tutorial!
We’ve found a recipe which is utterly indulgent, very easy and aesthetically adorable. When baking this recipe, we recommend you put on a Christmas movie or your favourite festive soundtrack, have a hot cocoa ready and waiting for you post bake and an abundance of fairy lights on. Just to ramp up the festive spirit for all the Christmassy feels.
At Sass & Belle, we strongly believe that cookies are always a good idea, especially as the nights start drawing in and there is a chill in the air. These fun and beautiful sugar biscuits add some seasonal charm to the home and are a tasty way to celebrate the colder months. They’re perfect with a cup of cocoa, too. Light some candles, snuggle up and indulge in these delicious treats.
Oh we do love a reason to celebrate and eat more sweets than is medically advised. And that, though not the only reason, is why we love Halloween. There is something nostalgic about the holiday and, at Sass & Belle, we feel as though we revert back to our childhood. The pumpkin carving, preparing your costume, trick or treating, or even a night in watching your favourite spooky movie: all of these playful activities contribute to why Halloween is one of our favourite times of the year! To get prepared and in the mood for spooks we have got an extremely simple and fun activity which will make the perfect sweet treat for you or your guests. It involves lots of candy and is an enjoyable recipe to make. We hope you have as much fun making these as we did!
We are very excited right now, for so many reasons. Firstly because today The Great British Bake Off will be back on our screens. There is no TV programme we love quite like GBBO. Mary Berry and the clan are as comforting as tucking into a slice of Victoria Sponge. It inspires us to bake in a way that no other cookery show has done before it. For that, we are eternally grateful. Another reason we’re rather ecstatic is because we have our very first guest blogger showing us how to bake *the prettiest cake we’ve ever seen*! The lovely Eboni, from EBONI + IVORY, also shows us an extremely easy Pink Lemonade recipe – another thing we’re eternally grateful for (you can see why we’re a little overexcited.) Now you’ve heard what’s in store, we imagine you are a bit too! Read on to discover how to bake pretty with Eboni…
