Perfect Party Puds For New Year - Win A Retro Biscuit Tin Ends 29/12

Christmas is just days away and while I’m sure many of you will be busy with your last minute preparations for the big day, I’m looking ahead to the New Year.

Today I’m teaming up with NuCasa to give away a gorgeous vintage style Typhoon biscuit tin to one lucky reader, but first I want to share a few ideas for New Year’s Eve party puds with you...


If you’ve got a fair amount of time on your hands to prepare this New Year’s eve and you’re somewhat of a dab-hand in the kitchen, macaroons are definitely the way to go.

Choose your flavours and colours (these don’t have to match!) to go with any New Year’s Eve Party theme and these yummy little numbers are sure to impress your guests.


If you’re not such a technically gifted baker but still want that individual wow factor, why not opt for decorated cupcakes?

Cupcake recipes are abundant and varied in their flavourings and they’re super quick and easy to whip up in large batches. You don’t even need to be an artistic genius for the decorations... for New Year why not just do a cupcake countdown to midnight?


Whether you choose to go tray bake or individual, meringue is quick and easy to whip up (if you have an electric whisk!) and is sure to go down a treat with your party guests.

Top with fruit and drizzle with chocolate, syrup, nuts, cream or whatever tickles your fancy and you’re good to go to see in 2016 with a sweet, light, meringue filled smile!


For those that like the wow factor, but maybe lack the baking prowess they dream of, a simple sponge cake can do more that you think. There are plenty of pre-mixes out there to give you a helping hand if you need it too. Knock up a quick sponge or chocolate cake and go wild with the decoration to make a centrepiece cake showstopper that Mary Berry herself would be proud of.

The lovely folks at NuCasa, retailers of retro kitchen accessories and funky home decor, have got one of their gorgeous vintage style Typhoon storage tins to giveaway today on my blog. This smart storage tin is perfect for storing, macarons, cupcakes or homemade biscuits. If you buy them ready made (like most of us) I won't even tell a soul!
