Last week I got asked if I could make two cakes for an orphanage here in Moscow , and of course I said yes. Somehow making cakes for children is so joyful it takes so little to please a child while we adults demands so much more.I wonder where we lost this ability, we are so much into our work,career,lack of time and so on that we somehow lost the small pleasures here in this life. Happily cakes normally brings adults and children a lot of joy. I for sure had a joyful time making this two cakes. The sweet lady who ordered the cake said I could make what ever I wanted so I ended up making two of my favourite characters from a very funny Russian cartoon series. I especially like the romantic ram called Barash, he is hopelessly in love with a lovely pig. The pink hedgehog called Ezhik is also a sweet little one.
Since the cake was only for children I made a Rainbow-vanilla cake and filled it with tutti-fruity cream. It became a really a joyful looking cake inside and outside:)

Sometimes some idea for a cake just pops into my head and I cant get peace in my soul until I have made it. This cake is one of those cakes. I have a friend named Ana-Maria who is posting so much beautiful Japanese drawings and other stuff on Facebook . So I guess the idea actually started there, and then I started to remember some Japanese dolls my father brought from Japan from the days he was a sailor, I used to play with them when I was a child. The cake itself also has a small story . Also in my childhood my friends and i used to go to our neighbouring village and buy the best and the hugest ice cream you can imagen, and what we normally used to order was one scoop of chocolate ice cream and one scoop of pistachio ice cream, wonderfully and sinfully tasty. So this cake is in the memory of this wonderful ice cream. So the lowest cake is a Chocolate cake filled with pistachio cream with chopped pistachios, the top cake is a pistachio cake filled with chocolate cream with chopped airy milk chocolate.
So my dear Ana-Maria and my favourite ice cream this cake is in the honor of you guys <3
