  1. Hi Emma

    Just like to say I will be trying you choc meringeu stack - we have a bake off in the office this week - sure it will be a winner. I have made Nigella's choc pavlova and it was truly delicious - your photos are beautiful !

  2. I just stumbled on your blog and am becoming a huge fan. I love the fact that your in a different country from myself as I get to learn a new vocabulary. Have you ever visited Tartlette? Both of your sites are similar in nature, beautiful, creative and your recipes are easy to follow. I don't know what the Netiquette is for suggesting a different site. Hope I didn't step on anyones toes.
