utumn is my favourite time of year, I love all the colours,the smell of earth, the cold crispy air and the sound of fallen leafs on the ground when they blow in the wind. But what I love most is all the delicious fruits that I can find I the markets and all the lovely things you can make with them. Big jars of apple jam, plum juice, marinaded pears on a shelf in a dark cupboard that we can take out on cold winter days to remember how colourful and bright these days where.Ahh, how i love the autumn. So this autumn cake is a sour cream cake filled with apple jam with a twist of lemon and cinnamon cream. Lovely flavours together.

I am not really into this cupcake trend that is now, not because I don't find them nice or uninteresting, just because I am more of a cake person. This cupcake was not suppose to be a cupcake either, it just somehow ended up like one. The original recipe was for a simple flat square cake with blueberries. It looked kind of boring so I decided that for ones I would make cupcakes. Then I went to the shop and they didn't have any blueberries so I ended up with Cherries. I am very happy with the result though they where sooooo tasty, totally delicious. So Vanilla cupcakes filled with cinnamon marinated cherries and topped with cherry cream and cherry/cinnamon syrup i will for sure make again.

This cake was a lot about testing. The lady who ordered the cake said she wanted a cake like the one in the shop for her sons engagement party. And i wasn't sure what to think or what she actually wanted, so after some more phone calls I finally understood which cake she wanted , and yes, she wanted a cake like the one in the shop.
And then it was the decoration, well I didn't get any exact answer on that either. So then after a few more phone calls she said, "I trust you, all the cakes you make are always beautiful" After she said this she got a lot more cake then she asked for, I am not very difficult to flatter :D But back to the cake in the shop. The cake in the shop is actually a very simple cake called Sancha cake, You can find it in almost all shops here in Moscow,it looks like a pyramid that somebody has thrown white and brown painting on. But it taste really delicious. So what I did to make this white and brown painted pyramid cake in the shop to look like this, was to make a normal chocolate cake , take out all the soft parts inside the cake so it became a cake shell, cut the soft cake-parts into pieces and mixed it with sour cream-vanilla cream and pineapple and put it all back again. She became very happy, I became very happy and hopefully somebody will get married and live happily ever after.
