The Theme

  • The yellow trend is making an impact and it's here to stay.
  • This colour gives an instant "lift" wherever it's used.
  • Yellow has always been popular in the world of pregnancy because it's one of the rare gender neutral colours and a clever option if you don't know the sex of the baby yet. 

The Recipe 


  • 6 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp Honey (or Golden syrup)
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp Bicorbonate of soda

  1. Add the sugar, honey and water into a saucepan and stir over a medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Bring to the boil for a couple of minutes or until it reaches hard crack stage (drop some sugar into a cup filled with water and it should turn hard immediately).
  3. Remove from the heat and quickly add the bicarb (foam will form) and stir it in.
  4. Pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  5. Let it cool down and break into pieces.
