Jubilee bundt cake

Create a showstopping centrepiece for your street party or special occasion. The homemade jam is flavoured with a wine-based aperitif, said to be a favourite drink of Queen Elizabeth II. If you’re short on time, you can replace the homemade jam with 300g/10½oz ready-made raspberry jam.

For this recipe you will need a 20cm/8in silicone bundt mould, a 23cm/9in springform cake tin,1 small and 1 large star-shaped piping nozzle and piping bags.

Prawn cocktail sliders

These simple prawn sandwiches are great as part of a spread for parties and picnics. The toppings make them super pretty and colourful, but they're still delicious if you want to keep it simple.

Strawberry lemonade

Fragrant strawberries plus tangy homemade lemonade, topped up with sparkling water, make this strawberry lemonade a super refreshing summer drink.

Rainbow picnic pie

This rainbow picnic pie ticks all the boxes when you’re aiming to eat a variety of different coloured veg. Ideal as a vegetarian option for feeding a crowd at a picnic or party.

Equipment: You will need a 20cm/8in springform tin, base lined with baking paper

Union Jack fondant fancies

Give your Royal party a patriotic feel with these cute fondant fancies.

Apple elderflower cooler

This elderflower mocktail is a lovely summery drink that can be kept short and sweet, or stretched out into a long drink for sipping on a hot day.

Coronation chicken tartlets

These little tartlets are perfect for summer get togethers, and they can be made well in advance and stored in the fridge.

For this recipe you will need 2 x 12-hole fairy cake or bun tins and an 8cm/3¼in round cutter.

For this recipe you will need a 20cm/8in silicone savarin mould and 10 small 4cm/1½in semi-sphere moulds.

Mini sausage rolls and veggie red pepper ricotta puffs

Mary's homemade sausage rolls will always be the first to go at a party! Choose from a veggie or traditional meat version – they are both really easy to make and absolutely delicious!

Strawberry mojito

A refreshing twist on the classic mojito, this is a brilliant accompaniment to a summer barbecue. Try using different in-season fruits in place of the strawberries to find your favourite.

Mini Yorkshire puddings with roast beef and horseradish cream

A beautiful little bite of tender, rare roast beef spiked with horseradish in a baby Yorkshire pudding - glorious.

Union Jack battenberg cake

This cake takes time and concentration, but is well worth the effort!

Raised chicken and ham pie

This pie is perfect for a Boxing Day feast: replace the meat with cooked turkey and ham to use up Christmas leftovers.

Equipment and preparation: for this recipe you will need a 900g/2lb loaf tin.

Lemon Swiss roll and amaretti trifle

Celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II with this impressive trifle, winner of the Platinum Pudding competition. For this recipe you will need 2 Swiss roll tins, measuring approximately 24cmx34cm/9½inx13½in and a trifle dish with capacity of approximately 3.5 litres/6 pints. However, you could always halve the recipe to serve 10. For shortcuts to this recipe, see our handy tips below.

Mini Cornish pasties

This traditional hand-held pie gets a mini makeover just in time for your street party or picnic.

Cheese and garlic tear-and-share bread

This cheesy, garlicky tear-and-share bread is great for picnics and other get-togethers. Top with dried oregano, poppy seeds or sesame seeds, depending on your preference.

Eton Mess

Purists would insist Eton mess should only contain strawberries, but other British summer berries like raspberries, red and rose currants and even cherries have a touch more sharpness which pairs perfectly with the sweet meringue and rich cream. These homemade meringues are a doddle, but you can also buy them which turns this dessert into a 10-minute-pudding.
