“Love is like a good cake; you never know when it’s coming, but you’d better eat it when it does!”

Nicole is in bed today feeling sick. So I made her take a break and prepared this blog post for you. I hope you enjoy our top 5 yummy treats from Cauldrons and Cupcakes!
“This pudding is one of the first desserts I mastered on my own, ably taught by my Nana when I was a small girl. It’s a very child-friendly dish for little hands eager to help out with dinner. This is easy and fast to make, and you can use whatever ingredients you have in the pantry. The lemon zest in this recipe gives the pudding a lovely citrus-y tang.”
“It’s a delicious combination of apricots, nuts, oats, seeds and a dash of chocolate, and there’s no baking involved at all – just a little heating of a few wet ingredients. This slice has been a stalwart at my workshops, and it’s a great standby recipe for school holidays, or as a lunchbox treat. I also like to give it as a gift. It makes an ample batch, which is handy because it seems to get eaten very fast.”
“Each time I make this I think of my Nana and her friends, sitting drinking cups of tea, eating slice and chatting during the long days of the War, with the rations and limitations and hardships.
There’s a lot of comfort to be had in a cup of tea and a slice.”
“A variation of a macaroon, these Bites are gluten-free and can also be sugar-free, so they are great for diabetics and people with food intolerances or following a paleo diet.”
“A few years ago a friend gave me a recipe she uses to make commercial quantities of fudge for a fudge house. I couldn’t believe how simple it was, or how great it turned out. And it only takes five minutes.”
We hope you enjoy looking at this and most of all cooking and eating these yummy treats! Nicole sends her love!
