During these … Continue reading Passionfruit Mousse, Almond Dacqouise, Strawberries and Vanilla Cake!

Do I hear a ‘YUM’!! … Continue reading Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache Macarons

Scones are one staple British breakfast/brunch/afternoon tea treat. It’s also commonly just a plain scone, and to be honest they are extremely tasty on their own, and without any additional flavoring. However, because I absolutely love chocolate, and had some chocolate chips left over from a previous bake, I thought why not change things up a bit. So in true Ammna ‘extra’ style, I’ve created … Continue reading Double Chocolate Chip Scones
