Product Review: Coles’ Bake & Create Decorating Range!

If you’ve been watching my Instagram Stories this month, you would have heard my empty-until-now promises of reviewing Coles new range of baking items – and it’s finally here!

Whilst I go into more detail later on in the post of each sprinkle set and every kind of sprinkle that they feature, let’s just say that after trying these few sprinkle sets, I am super excited about what Coles might bring our next 🙊

I also hope you appreciate my dedication to sharing with all of YOU whether these sprinkles are worth buying, as I am now stuck with SIX new sets to try and find room for on my baking shelves.

If you don’t know what they look like, here’s the unveiling of them that I shared a year ago – so you can imagine how full they’ve gotten since then 😅 Now, let’s get onto the reviewing!Read More »

Sailor Venus Love-Me Chain: DIY Gummy Candy Necklace

Guess what tomorrow is!?! It’s Sailor Venus’ birthday! Ever since Daniel got me a Blu-Ray DVD Player for my birthday, my love of Sailor Moon has deepened SO much more as I was finally able to watch the anime!

I bought myself the entire re-dubbed series (sans Sailor Stars, as that’s coming out later this year), but wasn’t able to watch it due to the DVD player on my laptop not working properly AND the fact that I accidentally bought one season in Blu-Ray, so I couldn’t use my other DVD player. Whoops 😅

Anyway, after my birthday back in September, I started binge-watching Sailor Moon and was already halfway through season three before I knew it. Once I realised I’d already watched over HALF of what I had, I took a break because I didn’t want to watch it all at once, but my love for all things Sailor Moon still remained!

I started planning future blog posts (such as this one) AND Daniel ordered me a bunch of new items to include in my collection, which I will update the photos of sometime this month once I give the entire area a tidy and re-organise 🙌 Okay, I’ll stop talking now – let’s get onto the recipe!Read More »

Unique Filling Ideas for Chocolates!

Woo-hoo! I did it! After nearly two weeks from my last recipe post, I am finally able to share another one with you and I am SO happy about it 🙌

I had been putting off this recipe, as simple as it is, because working with chocolate can be fickle and stressful, and I had already had some bad luck in the kitchen that day.

Nevertheless, I decided to go for it because I missed creating with food, and I wanted to further my goal of actually using all of my silicon moulds once before I bought any new ones.

Eventually, I got them right AND I was happy enough with them to share them on here – but that was AFTER I accidentally put the chocolate in the microwave for four minutes instead of one, causing me to burn the chocolate beyond recognition, melt the container I was using, *and* fill my kitchen with smoke. Yay!

How to Be Even More Environmentally Friendly in the Kitchen

I have been playing with chocolate more than usual, but I wanted to experiment with some different fillings this time around. I had covered the top of both Rice Krispies treats and bite-size fudge pieces in chocolate recently, but I was yet to completely coat every side of a filling with chocolate – until now!

I have a few more unique fillings for more chocolates in the future, so if there’s anything that you would like to see me test out, let me know in the comments and I’ll note it down for next time 👇 For now, let’s get onto the recipe!
