Salted Caramel sauce

My new love is salted caramel, it is beyond words! The combination of creamy sweetness and then the salt – but not just any old salt, it has to be fleur de sel which is quite easily obtainable. I will never again buy caramel it is just heavenly and far, far nicer than any shop bought – do try it!

4oz sugar
1 1 /2 oz butter
2 fl oz double cream
1 tsp fleur de sel

Melt the sugar over a medium heat and when it turns a deep amber colour add the butter and whisk until melted. Add the fleur de sel and cream, take off the heat and whisk until smooth. Easy!

You can fill cakes, pour over ice cream, whatever you desire!

Easiest paper flower ever!

I saw this on Pinterest and gave it a go, took seconds and it looks so pretty, going to make lots in different sizes and with different edges. I used an old copy of an Encyclopedia that I’ve had for years so won’t be running out of paper any time soon!!
