In celebration of our Showstopper of a limited-edition collaboration, Cath Kidston X The Great British Bake Off, we have teamed up with baker, and former Bake Off contestant, Manon Lagrève for a series of recipes inspired by the collection.

Worthy of a Star Baker, this deliciously buttery recipe for shortbread dipped in praline chocolate is indeed inspired by the iconic Star Baker slogan from the show and collection and makes the perfect sweet treat for sharing with friends and family over a cuppa and catch up. They are very quick to make, and you can add any message you wish on top.
