Homemade Irish Cream Recipe by Nevie-Pie…

Homemade irish cream recipe by Nevie-Pie Cakes

Festive Tipple…

Christmas time is here! To celebrate, we welcome back Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes who has shared a scrummy homemade Irish Cream recipe with us…I’ll definitely be giving this one a try!


Well Christmas is just around the corner, and rather than risk the bun fight of the shopping malls why not create some homemade presents this year! I know that the phrase ‘homemade’ can conjurer up images of sub-standard gifts, when I was a child I made peppermint creams every year, they were neon green and a variety of unrecognisable shapes, but a homemade gift can be beautiful and delicious.
I have been making Irish cream for many years and I have to say it’s one of the most gorgeous drinks I have ever quaffed. It brings to mind the nectar of the gods because they surely would be tempted by such a rich creamy chocolaty alcohol fueled tipple.
This recipe for Irish cream was given to me about 25 years ago by a vicar, (so surely it is blessed) and has been made nearly every year since. It always goes down a storm and, even if you are not a fan of the commercial stuff, I promise, you will love this. It is so easy to make, taste like heaven, and you must keep the biggest bottle for yourself.

Tasty, gluten free, guilt free treats….

Today we welcome The London Marshmallow Company to Mr & Mrs Unique. Husband and wife team, Ross and Amy created these delicious treats for a christmas market one year… they sold out and never looked back!

Here they tell us a bit more about the business and why you should consider these as treats for your big day… I literally can not wait to try one!


Tell us a bit about your business…

Looking for something new and delicious to make as Christmas gifts in December 2011, we decided to try and make homemade marshmallows. Our first ‘vanilla’ batch tasted delicious and was ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ soft – plus they went down a storm with friends and family. A year later Ross made a bigger batch in a few different flavours to sell at a Christmas market. They sold out and The London Marshmallow Company was born. We now sell weekly at East London’s Broadway Market and regularly supply mallows for fashion events, hen dos, birthdays and weddings!

What makes you Unique…

Unlike shop bought ‘pink and white’ mallows our mallows are made with the finest natural ingredients and whipped egg-white to make them super soft. The real fruit and natural colours mean they not only look beautiful but they taste amazing too! They are a great alternative to
