These cute little reindeer cakes are from my friend Lisa.She in turn got the recipe from the Coles book.
I used chocolate ripple biscuits which I put into a patty cake pan.
Put a spoonful of caramel pie filling on each one.
Melt some chocolate and pour on top of caramel.
Decorate-I cheated -I already had the little eyes at home so I used them.I put a chocolate button on for the face and a jaffa for the nose and pretzels for the antlers.
Another thing I made was taken from Desire Empire which is another blog I love and she has has the best recipes .
These were Meringue birds nests with a mascarpone &strawberry coulis- sounds a bit posh but trust me so easy to make.I made these on our last night at mums and they went down a treat.
I bought my meringues bases at Cole's but at the last minute decided to use pavlova nests.
2 tablespoons of Castor sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 tub of marscarpone
1 punnet of strawberry's
Cut half the punnet of strawberry's into strips these are for decoration.With the rest of the punnet push through a sieve (I made Kev do this he he he )
Add the sugar and vanilla to the marscarpone and some of the strawberry puree.
Put into the nests.
Decorate the with the remainder of strawberry's and pour a little of the strawberry puree over them.
Eat and enjoy.....We did....
Lastly I got this idea from A collection of thoughts blog one of Tamar's family bought this kit from Cole's called a Meringue Christmas Tree kit.I couldn't get one in Sydney but mum was able to pick it up in Qld.I didn't make it up there but did when we got home for our second Christmas day celebrations.
This time perfect......hey maybe I am either posh or just lucky....ha ha ha
