Hello everyone! We celebrated Mother’s Day a few weeks back. It was a busy weekend, so my post is running a bit late, but lets not focus on that! 😀 Lets focus on the cake I made for my Grandma.
My Grandma called me a few weeks prior to Mother’s Day, and asked me whether I had the time to make her a Mother’s Day cake? Of course I wanted to make a cake for her! 🙂 I started to plan the cake, and think what would be something she likes… Then it occured to me – during summertime, granny loves to eat blueberries with rye bread and milk. This gave me an idea to combine blueberry pie and cheesecake. It would have the cosy homemade blueberry pie feeling, but in a bit more festive form. And here is the outcome:
The cake had a blueberry pie crust topped with loads and loads of blueberries. 😛 On top I made a smooth vanilla flavored cheesecake layer. The outcome was really nice, this was a blueberry pie with vanilla sauce transformed into a cheesecake! 🙂
And here is a statement, which is so true. Period.
Hopefully everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day spent with loved ones and some yummy cake! 😉
Have a great week ❤
Happy Wednesday to you all! I promised to make a tutorial post of the next custome cake I make. Well here it is. 🙂
I was asked to make a cake shaped the number 1, and customize it with the company Triuvare’s colours.
First I started up making the gluten-free cake batter. I decided to bake the cake on a sheet so it would be easier to cut the cake into suitable peaces for building the shape of 1.
Two of these were enough to build this cake. And here is the first layer moistured with orange juice:
And here is the final cake before the sugar mass icing.
And the sugar mass is set:
And here is the finished cake! The blue power button is also a mini cake. 🙂
As I mentioned earlier, the cake batter was gluten-free. As for the fillings, I made a smooth mango mousse and a more fresh and breezy citrus mousse. Yum!
This cake came up really nicely, and I was really happy with the outcome! 🙂
The end of February and the beginning of March usually bring sunshine and warmer weathers. Birds are starting to sing and brighter day are here, Hurray! 🙂
Part of this time of the year is also “Laskiainen”. Families, and especially children, head to sledding hills with different kinds of sleds. The other part of this tradition is to eat “Laskiaispulla”. Basically a traditional bun filled with jam or almond mass and whipped cream. These delights are soooooo goooood, even better when the buns come straight from the oven! 😛
This year I took a head start, the actual Laskiainen is next Sunday the 26th. 😉 I did the tradiotional buns, and also a Bun Cake. Here are some photos from the process:
Oooh, I wish there were still some left! Looking at these pictures again just make me want more! 😀 Maybe next Sunday again… 😉
Happy and Energetic Monday to you all! ❤
This month I have had the pleasure to use my imagination and creativity to design personalized birthday cakes for two (grown-up?) men – my big brothers.
Here are my creations:
Two very different cakes, one quite playful and the other a bit more serious. 😉
These cakes not only looked different, but had also different fillings inside. The first one had a strawberry mousse on one layer and caramel + fresh strawberries in the second layer. In the other cake I made a raspberry mousse and a white chocolate-lime mousse. The cake batter was gluten free in both cakes.
Luckily I have a few more these sort of cakes coming up in a few weeks. I’m going to tell you all about them later! 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone! ❤
Last weekend I had the chance to make cakes for my friend’s baby’s Christening. She asked for a really chocolate rich Chocolate cake, and that is what I did!
I found a really promising recipe and tuned it a bit for even smoother outcome. Let me tell you, it was UNBELIEVABLE (had to make one cake just for me! 😀 )
One interesting thing about this cake, was that there isn’t actually any chocolate used in making the cake, just coca powder. Before this recipe I really have thought that you can’t get a chocolate-rich and moist taste from cocoa powder, you must use chocolate. I was proved wrong – I found a revelation from the combo coco powder + hot water. Have to try this combo in some other recipes too!
I made a chocolate ganache for the filling as well as for the topping. A good match, chocolate with chocolate… 😉
Yummy! I might have to get another piece from the fridge now. 😛
Have a great week everyone ❤
