Life has been a bit hectic this year so this is my first week joining in with the Great Bloggers Bake off, I usually try to join in every week but life was winning this year. All though I haven’t been baking I have been watching and I really wanted to try the fondant fancies. I’ve developed a taste for amaretto in hot chocolate recently and I love amaretti biscuits so I thought I would have a go at some amaretto flavoured fondant fancies with chocolate buttercream and mini amaretti biscuits.
I used Mary Berry’s easy fondant fancy recipie with a shot of amretto added, then halved Gino D’Acampo’s amaretti biscuit recipe for mini decorative biscuits. I cut the edges from the cake, divided it into 12 pieces and coated it with a chocolate buttercream. I left half of the cakes as buttercream covered and then made a pale yellow fondant to coat the outside f the remaining six cakes. Both types were topped with mini amaretti biscuits.
