We are massive Bake Off fans here at Cotton and Pearl! We have been waiting for the new series with bated breath but thankfully the wait is almost over! Series 6 starts this Wednesday 5 August and the first week is Cake Week. Looks like we have Madrira cake, Walnut cake and Black Forest Gateau to look forward to this week - exciting!!!!

In homage to Mary, Paul and the gang we've been experimenting in the kitchen in readiness for Wednesday. We decided to make a summer Black Forest trifle. There are all sorts of recipes available on the internet for this sort of thing. For ours we made a basic sponge in a shallow tray with white chocolate chips and pitted fresh cherries which we doused with mixed berry coulis and some kirsch. We sandwiched this with dark chocolate mouse and topped with whipped fresh cream and more cherries! On your marks, get set, BAKE...

We served in our fabulous new dessert bowl to add a touch of wow!
