Candy Cane Bark Recipe

Ingredients and tools needed…

Step 01:

Firstly, half your white chocolate pieces. You should have two sets of 200g buttons/callets or broken chunks.

After that, add one set of 200g to a microwavable jug and at 10-20 second intervals heat your chocolate. Make sure you use your thermometer to check the temperature each time you check. The chocolate should only heat up to around 31 degrees C (87 degrees F). Any hotter and your chocolate won’t set properly. Don’t worry if there are still lumps just gently stir using a butter knife and they should melt.

Candy Cane Bark tip! How to fix overheated chocolate!

If you do end up over heating your chocolate simply add a few new pieces in and mix. Check the temperature and add a little more if it’s still over 31 degrees C.

Step 02:

Prep a cookie sheet with greaseproof paper. You may need to tape it down using a little wash tape on the corners.

Step 03:

When your chocolate is melted and ready poor it onto your prepared greaseproof paper and sheet. Then gently smooth it out using your angled palette knife. Make sure not to thin it out too much. You want to aim for a nice 2-3mm thickness. Leave to set. You can pop your tray into a refrigerator for 15 minutes if you like. Don’t leave this in your fridge for a long period of time, however, as humidity and chocolate are not friends!

Step 04:

Meanwhile, repeat step 01!

Step 05:

When your next 200g batch of white chocolate has melted add in a few drops of your pink candy colour! It’s always best to start small and add a little bit of colour if you need a stronger tone. If you add too much it’s a lot harder to then lighten it.

Step 06:

Repeat step 03, but pour and smooth your pink chocolate over the set white chocolate slab you created.

Step 07:

Crush up some candy canes (likewise you can use those cute peppermint swirl candies too) and sprinkle on top of your pink and white layered chocolate bark. Now leave to set!

Step 08:

Lastly, once your bark has set it’s time to take a sharp knife and carefully cut or break into pieces.

You can easily package your bark up as gifts for neighbours or friends. These vintage style pink stripe paper bags would be look cute! Break into smaller pieces and mix with salted pretzels, homemade marshmallow cubes and mini gingerbread cookies for a fabulously festive snack mix!

Festive S'mores macarons by Juniper Cakery

When it came to developing what macaron flavour to fill our Christmas cracker boxes with this year we thought fun yet indulgent was the way to go! We’d made a batch of our Madagascan vanilla marshmallows to shoot our Christmas Treat Bags. We then dipped them in Belgian milk chocolate and wondered why we’d never created a S’Mores flavour before. A macaron version was always our first idea, but we sketched out the flavour as mini cookie bites too! Obviously the macaron won!

Pretty Pastel Unicorn Cake!

Pretty Unicorn Cake by Juniper Cakery

We make A LOT of super cute and magical unicorn cakes & cupcakes. All of them utterly perfect for kids parties or Christenings! This time we were asked to make a more grown-up unicorn cake. Adorned with bubblegum pink macarons, pastel meringues, 24k gold leaf and a more pretty than adorable unicorn. We think this cake added the perfect amount of grown-up magic to the party!

The pastel unicorn cake was covered in a silky whitened buttercream in our popular Strawberry Milkshake flavour. We then added a soft lavender ombré effect along the base before adding a mix of fun sprinkles. 24k edible gold leaf was then applied before a blush pink drip edged one side of this cutie!

A box full of matching party cupcakes accompanied this pastel unicorn cake! Some were rose swirls of white buttercream finished with 24k gold, others featured pink chocolate drizzles, sprinkles, pretty roses and pastel meringues!

We LOVE drip cakes as they’re usually loaded with so many sweet treats! This pastel dream cake was topped with a flurry of sprinkles (we used ‘Crush’ and ‘Pastel Princess’ both from Shire Bakery), pretty pink macarons, pastel turquoise meringue kisses and pink and lavender roses!

Fondant unicorn by Juniper Cakery

That magical unicorn on top? 100% hand crafted using zero moulds whatsoever. We studied and sketched a few stylised unicorns and horses before experimenting with fondant. In the end it needed to be pretty stable, but the pose couldn’t look static. We decided to have the unicorn stood on an edible cloud to make it durable and have one leg arched up! This also meant that the unicorn could stand a little higher than all the treats on top.

This sure was a fun order to make. What’s not to love right? Unicorn theme! Macarons! Cute colour palette!
