Mandarin and Marscapone cheese Tart.

Here is the recipe if you would like to make it at home:

Mandarin and Marscapone Tart
  1. Shop bought pastry case – 99p from Tesco.
  2. 250g Marscapone cheese
  3. double cream
  4. 1 egg (separated)
  5. 8 mandarins
  6. 2 tablespoons of caster sugar
  7. 2 drops of vanilla essence


For the filling, place the egg yolk into a bowl with the caster sugar and whisk together.
Add the mascarpone and beat until thoroughly combined. Stir in the vanilla essence.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg white with a clean whisk until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed from the bowl. Gently fold the egg white into the mascarpone mixture.

Whisk the mixture together and fold into the pastry base. Use a spatula to smooth the mixture evenly.

Piece the mandarins and starting on the outside arrange in a circlular fashion until you reach the middle. You can even mix fruits add cherries for a more christmasy look.

Leave to chill in the fridge for 2 hours.

December 8th 2012: Watch Barney’s New York &
Disney goes High-Fashion with “Electric Holiday”

If you can’t be bothered to leave the house this weekend because it is just too cold! Then, amuse yourself by watching this very cute Christmas animation from Disney. I just love it!  Watch as Minnie embarks on a fantastical fashion adventure in Paris, where she walks the runway in Lanvin and look out for cameos from big names in fashion such Linda Evangelista, Daphne Guinness, Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga and Sarah Jessica Parker.
