10 Afternoon Tea Recipes For Dessert Day:

What is the significance of National Dessert Day you might ask? National Dessert Day is an annual event in the United States on the 14th of October. It is a day for individuals to indulge their sweet appetites and eat their favourite desserts.

Thirdly, Blackberry Or Strawberry Macaroons: Perfect Homemade Gifts. Blackberry Or Strawberry Macaroons anyone!? How adorable are these? More cuteness overload. Perfect pretty gift. These pretty patisseries are very fashionable at the moment but can be very expensive to buy, so why not make your own and give it as a gift in a recycled box lined with non-stick baking paper and a lacy paper doily tied with ribbon.

Fourthly, Chocolate, Orange & Watercress Brownies with Chocolate Ganache Topping:

Sixth, BerryWorld Strawberry Rose petal and Pistachio Pavlova. This is a slight Middle Eastern take on one of my favourite puddings. Lashings of sweetened cream flavoured with a dash of rose water, loaded onto a huge sticky meringue round, filled with fresh halved strawberries, topped with crushed pistachios and fragrant rose petals – it’s like summer on a plate!
