Milk Tart Phyllo Cups
Few things are as traditional as Milk Tart, however, you might feel that it’s not quite fancy enough.

Caramel Malva Pudding
Give this firm favourite an indulgent twist with a rich caramel sauce – and serve them as individual portions with poached pears or apples and a dollop of softly whipped cream.

Peppermint Crisp Tart Parfait
Another firm favourite that is sure to leave your guests feeling nostalgic is Peppermint Crisp Tart. Elevate this classic flavour combination, by serving individual pots of Peppermint Crisp Tart Parfaits. It looks elegant but tastes like home.
Molten Peanut Butter Chocolate Fondant Cakes
These fondant cakes are absolute show-stoppers. Dip your spoon in for luscious mouthfuls of molten peanut butter goodness. Serve with strong coffee, or a shot of nut liqueur like Frangelico.
Mini Apple Pies
For a delicious Autumn-spiced feeling, serve individual mini Apple Pies, baked until rich and golden, stuffed with gloriously tart apples, softened perfectly with the comforting aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Nothing is more comforting on a cold night than a freshly baked pastry – scrumptious!
Hazelnut Butter and Coffee Meringues
