Ginger, marzipan and dark chocolate are three of Mum’s favourite ingredients. So the winning combo for her birthday would be stem ginger, wrapped in marzipan and coated in dark chocolate.

Chocolates are so simple to make, which means you can focus on choosing delicious ingredients which go together well and making them look beautiful. Stem ginger is spicy, it goes well with nutty sweet marzipan and a rich dark chocolate. Gold edible glitter adds a sparkly finish to them.
