Bake With Me! Mars Bar Cake

If your following me on instagram, then you'll have seen my sneakpeak of an upcoming post on Mars Bar Cake. Well The day is finally here; today I'm showing you how to achieve that deviousness. This recipe is from my copy of 'The Primrose Bakery Book', as I actually can't bake unless following a proper recipe. This recipe is very easy and perfect to do as a family activity.

The recipe calls for: 

70g Unsalted Butter
3tbsp Golden Syrup
6 58g Mars Bars
200g Cornflakes

Step One
Line your chosen baking tin with baking paper. The recipe calls for a 20" round tin, but I felt that this square tin you work better for the purpose.

Step Two
Chop up the Mars Bars in itty-bitty little pieces; the size and shape does not matter at all. Just break them down so that they are not big cubes.

Step Three
Melt the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over a low heat until both are combined. Do not stop stirring! After both are melted, add the chopped Mars Bars.

Special Note
The Mars Bars will take a long time to melt down, but resist the urge to turn up the heat. Chocolate will seize up if it is melted directly on a heat that reaches too big. If hat does happen, then I'm afraid you'll have to start over from scratch.

Step Four
Add the cornflakes to the butter-golden syrup-Mars Bar mixture, removing from the heat, and mix together. You'll need some muscle for this part as one the mixture begins to cool, it starts to become very sticky.

Step Five
Spoon the mixture into your baking tin, making sure that there is an even layer across the tin. All that's left to do if to leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours so that it sets.

Step Six
Slice and Serve!!

Doesn't that look yummy! I wish there was some left right now, as I'm a fair bit peckish. But, it felt good to get back into baking. I need to try harder to do some on a semi-regular basis. It's just difficult to find the time at the moment.

What's your favourite cake or buiscut to bake?

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
