Lemon Frangipani Tart

  – submitted by Kitchen Angel   Earlier in the month we stumbled across a fantastic blog, Sweet Adventures Blog Hop, created by a group of talented Australian foodies and bloggers.  Each month one of these bloggers will announce a blog hop adventure (theme) for participants to create a dessert and link-up with other talented people either participating in the adventure themselves or for the many of us who love browsing beautiful and inspiring recipes.     We loved the idea created by the blog hop hostesses so much that we decided to participate in the Sweet Adventures Blog Hop – Lemons theme hosted by Delicieux this month.  We hope you like our entry.  We certainly can’t wait to see all the other beautiful lemon recipes!   Ingredients 1 sweet flan / tart case (see note) 1/2 packet Pasta di Mandorla baking mix 1 lemon zested and 1/4 cup of juice 2 extra-large or jumbo egg whites   2 egg whites, at room temperature 1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted Pinch of salt One squeeze of lemon juice Icing sugar and lemon slices to decorate     Method – Frangipani Tart Preheat your oven to 175oC.   Prepare the sweet flan / tart case per the packet instructions.   While the tart case is in the oven, empty half the contents of the baking mix into a bowl.  Add in 2 egg whites, lemon zest and juice and mix well.  The moisture should be smooth and moist.   Spread or pipe the baking mix into the tart case.   Place the tart onto a baking tray and bake in a 190oC for 15 minutes, or until …

What a week!

What a week!

  Some exciting things have been happening this week and it’s got us all pumped around here. Firstly, we’ve got our very talented cabinet maker working on some new display shelves and can’t wait to show it off to you. We also bought a few new and vintage bits and pieces to feature on the display. We think it will be a real visual feast when it all comes together!!     Then of course our much anticipated packaging came back from the printer’s for approval. It’s all looking pretty good and fingers crossed our online sales channel will be up and running before the end of the month. Here’s a sneak peak at the pack.   And then of course there’s the best news of all … we are going to be a part of the Boutique Markets this month. It’s on from 9am to 1pm Sunday, 26th February at King George Square Brisbane.     We’re so excited to be at these markets as it will be the first time we get to showcase our product range, and having been a shopper at these markets in the past, can’t wait to be amongst all the other creative people and their wares. We hope you can make it to the markets and would really appreciate it if you told all of your family and friends. From a look at the retailer line up, there’s sure to be something for almost everyone!   If you do get a chance to pop down to the Boutique Markets, make sure you come in and say ‘ciao’. Mario and I will be there to let you try some …
