It’s friday! And friday means dessert, right? These mini cupcakes are cardamom cakes with raspberry buttercream frosting and they were a joy to make! The cakes were super simple – pretty much just mixing everything together – and the frosting was very easy to make too! I tried a new recipe for the cake today and I loved it! Definitely a new favorite! Continue reading

This past weekend I had the pleasure of making a cake for a little boy who turned one. The mother wanted a zoo cake and asked if I was able to make a cake with some fondant animals on top. I’ve never tried it before and was excited to try! I ended up making an elephant, a lion and a giraffe. Continue reading

I’m still alive!

Hi everyone,

I’m just stopping by quickly to say that I’m sorry it’s been so quiet in here lately! I’ve had so much to do in school that I just haven’t had the time or energy to write anything… :( I have done some delicious baking though! I’ve baked the most amazing vanilla buns, chocolate cookies with buttercream filling and cranberry- and pistachio biscotti and I’m excited to share the recipes with you! I promise to post at least one of them in the coming week! :)

Recipe – “semlor”

semlor

I made these traditional Swedish buns – semlor – last week. I’ve never really been a fan of them but have dutyfully eaten one each year anyway ;) But this year I found a FABULOUS recipe by Swedish baker Roy Fares and WOW! The buns were so soft and fluffy, the almond filling was perfectly sweet with a hint of cardamom and to top if all off – some delicious fresh whipped cream.  Continue reading

This pie didn’t turn out quite the way I planned. The flavors were great, but, well, the custard turned out more like sauce than custard.. ;) We can’t always succeed, now can we? (scroll to the bottom of this post to see how beautiful it looked once cut into ;) ) Continue reading

This flower was actually quite tricky since you want the petals to only touch each other at the base to give it a realistic look. So you probably need some gumpaste flower making experience or it will be quite hard.. But here’s the tutorial! Continue reading
