Pineapple-Mango Salsa
2 mangoes
½ pineapple

1 sweet red pepper
2 plum tomatoes
1 jalapeño pepper
4 spring onions
3 limes, juiced
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, optional
salt to taste

3-4 salmon fillet
2 limes
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro and parsley, minced
cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups pineapple-mango salsa

Peel and dice the mango and pineapple. Chop red pepper, tomatoes, jalapeño and green onions.
Mix together.Squeeze in juice from three limes.
Finely mince cilantro and stir in. Salt if desired.
Allow to sit in fridge for the flavours to combine at least 30 minutes before serving.

Start by squeezing the limes over the flesh side of the salmon fillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and minced herbs. Allow to sit for 30 minutes while you preheat your grill to 500° F.

When the grill is hot, spray fish lightly with olive oil to prevent sticking. Place flesh side down on the grill and cook for 3 minutes. Carefully flip the salmon to the skin side and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Remove from grill. Top with pineapple-mango salsa and serve.

Pineapple Rum Ginger








Vanilla cake with rum soaked pineapple pieces, this time making these I added a few of the pineapple pieces to the topping as well as the ginger and drizzled the rum sugar syrup left over from soaking the pineapple pieces, which was also drizzled on the cake before icing.

Did not add  any golden syrup this time as i thought they would be sweet enough with the extra rum syrup I made.

Doing it this way make them more moist and ready for any adult to get a taste of the evenng to come.

Pineapple – Ginger

Pineapple cupcake with  Pineapple and Ginger butter icing decorated with crystallized ginger pieces


I also found some freeze dried pineapple pieces which I bought as well, I hydrated them in a  rum and sugar mix which still kept fruity flavour.
I thought the rum would  be a bit stronger but I am thinking to put rum in the topping next time might give a nice twist to it.
The butter icing I mixed with some ginger syrup decorated with chopped crystallized ginger and drizzled with golden syrup.



Black Pineapple Green










My non alcoholic Pineapple cupcake with a double topping of butter icing and royal icing.

I had been thinking for a while the signature  cupcake and I have found it, well this is the non alcohol version.

Main cake is pineapple flavour with the centre coloured green pineapple figure I left vanilla and the topping  is royal icing which is then topped with a soft butter icing and decorated with caramelized ginger diced rather fine so you just get the little hint of ginger.

Watch this space I am so excited I have found the cupake watch this space as they say.

I met up with a good ole friend this week and while chatting away i mention the few combi I have been trying for my signature cupcake and the ideas were bouncing back and forth and found the perfect combi and design.

Now to put it in action and smile

Sometimes it is just that certain person to bring out the best in one.

Not giving anything away until I have put it all together then pics will be posted but this lady here is well happy.
