Tim Tam Tart

Tim Tam Tart is a firm favourite in our home and as such we just had to share.

I always like to impress a dinner guest with a great dessert.  But I also don’t like to fill them up to the point that they’re rolling out of my home sick to the stomach from eating so much.

This Tim Tam Tart is fabulous, it’s quite decadent so less is more.  Enjoy!

 

 

Ingredients

  • 50 g unsalted butter, chopped into cubes
  • 200 g Tim Tams
  • 1 cup milk
  • 150 g mini marshmallows
  • 150 g dark chocolate
  • 300 ml thickened cream

Method

Lightly grease a loose-based 22 cm spring form tin with butter and line the base with baking paper.

Place the Tim Tams and butter in a food processor and process until they are well combined

Tip the crumb mixture into the cake tin, press with your fingers to form an even shell on the base and up the side. Place in the fridge to chill while you make the filling.

For the tart, heat the milk, marshmallows and chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat until it starts to come to a boil. Remove from heat and stir until combined. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl whip the cream, once it forms small peaks slowly drizzle in the chocolate marshmallow filling. Whisk until smooth and combined.

Pour the filling into the tart shell and spread it evenly. Chill in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours before serving.

Silas Wild One Party

A Wild One Party is a popular theme especially for boys turning one.

Recently, Nichola created a fun yet mature setting for her son Silas 1st birthday with the theme Wild One.

When it came to catering she created a funky grazing station on her kitchen bench top, Nichola styled this with a roll of fake turf (picked up from Bunnings) and randomly sprawled out her spread of savoury biscuits, meat and cheeses along with a variety of fruits.  Some extra touches including a skull and light box titled ‘Treats for the tribe’ completed the grazing space.

Aside from this Nichola also created a party table for the sweet tooths in the crowd.  Half the table was dedicated to a ‘build your own trail mix’ station.  Keeping it simple she grabbed paper bags rolling down the tops to hold a variety of nuts and sweets to create the ultimate trail mix.

On the same table she placed the birthday cake, along with a donut platter and personalised chocolates.

The birthday cake was a chocolate mud cake, covered in ganache, the sides lined with chocolate to resemble bark and finished with a wooden cake topper simply stating ‘Wild One’.

The main room was styled well.  With a tepee and greenery lining one corner, crates, old suitcases and natural products including skulls and garden trinkets were strategically placed throughout.

A welcome sign was placed out the front, a personalised board on the side table and a letter board on the party table with all the birthday boys stats ensured everyone knew exactly who’s birthday they were celebrating.

What a beautiful way to celebrate turning one.  So many wonderful little pieces tie this whole room together.

From looking at the photos we’re sure the birthday boy had a wonderful time along with all his special guests.
