Prawn and mushroom spring rolls
The tasty twist in this crunchy, moreish finger food is pickled veg – pick it up from Asian grocery stores.
Flying butterfly cupcakes
Pretty little cakes with wings will be up, up and away on your handcrafted cake stand! Just be careful not to pipe on too much buttercream – the stand holds cupcakes weighing up to 70g each.
Full instructions for the cupcake stand can be found on page 95 of the October issue of Better Homes and Gardens.
Spicy beef potato dumplings
Use up leftover mashed potato to create hearty dumplings filled with spicy, garlicky bolognese. Present them on stylish serving boards and Dad will feel extra-spoiled.
Salt and pepper pecan-bacon praline
This is the ultimate mash-up of sweet and salty goodness: bacon, sugar and nuts. Oh man, Dad will love it (as will everyone else in the family)!
Check out the October issue of Better Homes and Gardens for the recipes.
