A day at The Dessert Deli !!

Laura Amos who runs The Dessert Deli Company ( @TheDessertDeli ) kindly invited me into her kitchen for a day to help out and see how it all works making puds and cakes in large quantities.
I was amazed by Laura's memory, she didn't look at any recipes or hardly weigh anything. It all ran so smoothly, with the help of Orlando !!
We start off making a sponge cake mix which made Apple and Plum cakes and Pear and Blackberry tarts.


   Next - Apple Turnover Pastries .....


Then - one of my favourites .... Chocolate mousse in the biggest container ever.......


Can you tell it tasted great from the smile on my face .....

And then the honeycomb shards to go ontop of the mousse - loved this bit ....

1st the bicarb being added to sugar in pan....

Then being tipped out ....


And then spread out to harden - delicious !!

The base for the Millionaire's Shortbread had been made the day before so we just need to add the caramel and chocolate layers......

 First the caramel ..... and then the chocolate.....


Lots of pudding shots ..... here's the Banoffee's getting their finishing touches....


And here's some of the baking cooling ......


A very busy but fantasic Day !!! Thanks Laura - I'll be back !! x
