Robbie’s inspiration

Welcome to this site which includes all of Michael and my ideas on writing and baking. Our series of books about Sir Chocolate and his friends includes both of these themes as the Sir Chocolate series of books are also cookery books. Each book includes a children’s story written in poetry form about the world of Sir Chocolate and five recipes that children can make with adult supervision. There are also links to the YouTube videos which show you how to make the various recipes and tutorials on how to make the various fondant creatures and other items of interest.

There are currently three books available in the Sir Chocolate Book series:

Sir Chocolate and the Strawberry Cream Berries Story and Cookbook;

Sir Chocolate and the Baby Cookie Monster Story and Cookbook; and

Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Dough Bees Story and Cookbook.

We are also working on a new series of books about the adventures of Silly Willy and Cautious Craig as they travel to various holiday destinations. This series will also include selected recipes and fondant illustrations.

Silly Willy goes to Cape Town will be available in July 2017


This site includes all of our other writing and baking ideas and detail about how we made some of our cakes and treats.

The world of Sir Chocolate

The World of Sir Chocolate

Sir Chocolate lives in a world made of a giant gobstopper. The houses are made of gingerbread or cake. The grass is made of coconut ice and the flowerbeds are bordered with Smarties.
