Find Polli On

Urban Euphoria

Polli Team - Thursday, May 31, 2012

So excited to be stocking this sweet little store in Summer Hills, Sydney. Urban Euphoria is exactly that a little oasis in the middle of the village feel of down town Summer Hill selling beautiful accessories, homewares and fashion. Tabitha was nice enough to let us make a special Polli window display to celebrate having Polli in store. We used this vintage A frame artists ladder, lots of local rosemary, vintage books and some Amsterdam jewellery stands we painted in a delicious citrine colour specially for the window.

We are totally addicted to Instagram, how can an app be so absorbing?! We use to snap sneak peeks of new samples, delicious food we share and studio life.

Art Gallery of NSW

Polli Team - Friday, May 25, 2012

It's amazing to see your designs in the state art gallery... well they're not hanging on the walls but they are available in their beautiful new gift store. If you're able to get down to the NSW gallery in the Domain you've got a couple of weeks left to catch this year's Archibald.

Each year, the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW judge the Archibald and Wynne Prizes, and invite an artist to judge the Sulman Prize (in 2012, it is Susan Norrie).

The Archibald Prize is one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious art prizes. It’s awarded to the best portrait painting, preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics.

The Wynne Prize is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery, or figure sculpture, while the Sulman Prize is given to the best subject painting, genre painting or mural project in oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media.

Autumnal Birthday Cake

Polli Team - Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Hannah is amazing, she amazes us daily but especially when she bakes. Today was special and yes it tasted as good as it looks.

If you're interested this is actually a Nigella recipe but Hannah has improvised with the yummy apples.

175g butter, softened
100g golden caster sugar
3 large eggs
350ml maple syrup
500g self-raising flour
175ml hot water
3 apples, 2 grated and one finely chopped
2 x 21cm sandwich tins, buttered and lined

2 large egg whites
125ml maple syrup
125g golden caster sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon maple extract, optional
125g pecans

Preheat the oven to 180ºC
Beat together the butter and sugar until very pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating in well after each addition, then gradually add the maple syrup to make a smooth mixture. Finally, spoon in the flour alternately with the hot water, beating gently until smooth again. Fold through apple. Divide the batter between the two tins, and cook for 40 minutes. A cake-tester, inserted, should come out clean when they're cooked. Let the cakes cool in their tins on a rack for 10 minutes before unmoulding them, then leave them to get cold before you get on with the icing.

Put everything except the pecans and extracts into a glass or metal bowl that fits over a saucepan to form a double boiler. Fill the saucepan with enough water to come just below - but not touching - the bowl when it sits on top. Bring the water to the boil, set the bowl on top and, using an electric hand-held whisk, beat the mixture vigorously for 5-7 minutes. It should stand up in peaks like a meringue mixture. Take the bowl off the saucepan, away from the heat, and add the extracts, beating them in for another minute.
Ice the middle, sides and top of the cake. Chop most of the pecans finely, leaving some pieces larger. Sprinkle over the top of the cake, and throw at the sides. This cake is best eaten the day it's cooked.

Thanks for staying up til midnight Hannah. xx
