Get better very soon Jemma.

    Wanna mixer video 🙋🏼‍♀️

  6. Della Thomas says:

    Thank you so much for answering my question, you guys are awesome! Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and get well soon to you, Jemma xx

  7. Meagan Pillemer says:

    I've been trying my hand at macarons and the Italian meringue works best for me. My question is though, what else can I use if i dont have a food processor to make sure my almond flour is really fine? I have a small processor but even adding my powdered sugar it still becomes a bit buttery.

  8. Kitten Kaboodle says:

    Love you Jemma! Happy holidays and hope your back heals up quick xx

  9. sonshine64 says:

    Hey Jemma, I am here in the USA, Oklahoma.. I don't really have a question more of a comment. I tried your sea salted caramel recipe.. for Christmas stocking presents and Oh My Goodness, it is the best!!!. The only difficulties i have since i am in America and not in UK I do have to order my golden syrup by mail. and the conversions but thank God for google. anyway i am hooked it is a great recipe and very accurate. The reason i say very accurate, is because a lot of the recipes i have used from Youtube have turned out not so great because the measurements were not right. but yours was spot on even with the conversions. YAy , Hope you get better soon. K. :0) PS Congratulations on getting married

  10. Macca Lives says:

    Hi Jemma and team! Firstly, hope you're feeling better. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
    Second, I'm about to embark on the creation of a winter wonderland cake, which will require some precise glitter application. What type of brushes do you use for that at C&D? Can you use any old craft brush or makeup brush, or do you have special recommendations for applying glitter and/or lustre dust?

  11. The Editor says:

    I hear a bit of Catherine Tate in her voice! Love Cupcake Jemma!

  12. Ravnanger Tveiten says:

    I'm a certified chef,and I must say that Jemma is way better than me doing pastry/baking.

  13. Becky Ferguson says:

    Get well soon! I've made souffles, and they aren't too hard. You do need to eat them pretty quickly though!

  14. angel CH says:

    I love how much adorable Sally is ⁦💛 please make for us a video about the best way of cooking stuffed cookies 🍪

  15. Anuli Medagedara says:

    Get well soon jemma…🥰🥰🥰

  16. Eamonn Power says:

    Regarding puff pastry I got this tip from another YouTube baker called Gemma. This cuts out all of the hard work. Use frozen butter, grate the butter into the dry ingredients and bring it together with a little liquid. No need to keep rolling and folding and dabbing butter just roll it once and put in the oven. The frozen butter evaporates and creates pockets of steam all over making flaky layers of pastry

  17. sheilamariegloryvega ... says:

    If I get the chance to be able to travel to London someday, I will definitely visit and grab myself some cupcakes in your store! And I won't let it pass without seeing or talking to you! much love from the Philippines!!!!

  18. Powersandassoent DOROTHY A says:

  21. Anne Lane says:

    How do you make gluten free sugar cookies?

  22. Patricia Disanzo says:

    Hi Jemma, just started following you not long ago. Just saw that you hurt your back. Get well soon. Love all of your video’s. You are such an inspiration. Your videos are easy to follow and are a lot of fun to create. Going to be doing your fault line cake in a couple of weeks. Very excited. Thank u for all that you do.

  23. Donie Callahan says:

    I need advice from Jemma with making ganache. I followed a recipe with a ratio of 1:1 and it didn’t thicken. Was I supposed to use less heavy cream?

  24. Inayah Khan says:

  30. Andreea Radu says:

    Hey guys! Thanks for everything you shared here on youtube for us. I really appreciate when skilled and talented people like you are willing to share their recipes with the world, although you can easily keep it as secret because it's your business after all. You're an inspiration for us! Hugs from a fan from Romania!:)
