Flower's Fabulous Fudge


I've always been a big fan of baking, and when the weather starts to turn cooler and autumn wings its way towards us I always relish getting out my baking bits and getting stuck in. I love making cupcakes especially (see my awesome Halloween cupcakes and biscuits post here), but I also really like to experiment and try new recipes whenever I can.

I've recently started collecting the new 'Disney Bakes and Sweets' magazines and I am literally in love with them. Baking + Disney = my ultimate heaven so you can imagine my delight when I found out these were coming out. I hot-footed it down to my local newsagents and picked up the first two copies, and I'm eagerly awaiting getting issue 3 on Thursday (I can see this becoming an expensive habit, but I don't care!) The magazines basically feature Disney-themed recipes, and come with cute Disney bits to help bake with. The first issue included some Winnie the Pooh cupcake stencils along with a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter/embosser, and the second issue came with some Winnie the Pooh moulds for making icing/chocolate characters. I'm actually debating subscribing to the magazines as I know I'll be buying one every week, but I'll have to assess my money situation before I do!

Anyway, this weekend me and my boyfriend decided to have a flick through my two magazines to see if anything took our fancy. I really wanted to make the Mickey Mouse biscuits but fancied a bit of a challenge, so instead we opted for Flower's Fabulous Fudge. I've never made fudge before but I'm a big fan of it so was really excited to give it a go. It involved a lot of patience as it takes a long while to boil all the ingredients together, as well as waiting an age for the fudge to actually set, but once done and decorated (and eaten) I was really impressed with our efforts. Whilst the fudge isn't the usual smooth fudge texture, it tastes absolutely delicious and so moreish. My dad is a big fan and the tin we had full to the brim with cubes of fudge is now significantly lower, so they've definitely been a hit! They're really soft and yummy and for a first attempt I think they're amazing. The only thing I'm now regretting is making them a week before I go on holiday - bye bye bikini body!

Have any of you been buying the new Disney Bakes and Sweets magazines? Let me know what you've been baking!

  3. This is right up my street too but I can't seem to find it in the local newsagents or supermarkets I've been in. Thinking of subscribing, especially for the free gifts you receive too but it's something like £16 a month and I think that might be a bit excessive? Looking forward to seeing any more recipes you do from them :)

  8. I love fudge so I might have to try this recipe out if I can get my hands on it. I haven't read that magazine but I did consider buying it after seeing numerous adverts for it on TV. Maybe I'll purchase a copy this weekend.

  13. This sounds like the cutest magazine ever and the fudge looks delicious! I made doughnut french toast the other day which is so good but it definitely falls into the post-holiday recipe category as well!
    Try it out when you get back though :) http://eisforellen.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/own-sugar-taste.html
