After yet another long cake-break i got asked if i could make a Wall-e cake for a birthday party. I love making these types of cakes, well i love all children theme cakes. You can make so much fun out of it and give the cake "personality" , i don't mean that other cakes are boring to make but somehow these types of cake makes my creativity bobble and it feels so satisfying to do.
This cake where suppose to be around 3 kg, well, somehow things doesn't always work out they way  it suppose to so it ended up  as a cake around 6 kg. Anyway to much cake is never a problem in my eyes. This cake is a Vanilla cake filled with strawberries and egg cream.

Fabergé Easter egg

Here is this year's Easter cake.I had originally planned to make something very traditional like a cake with Easter Bunnies, eggs and chickens but then I found out that it's actually pretty boring. And since I live in Russia, I thought that this is the Russian answer to Easter egg. Fabergé eggs are incredibly beautiful, so to call this cake  a Fabergé egg is not really right , but that is at least  where I got the inspiration  for this cake. The cake it self  and the filling is inspired by my favourite Easter chocolate - filled Easter eggs from the Norwegian chocolate maker Freia. Unfortunately I cant get them here in Moscow, So this Chocolate cake filled with lots of delicious white chocolate cream is the closest I came.

Fantasy flower cake

After a long  time since my last cake (too long)  I have finally made ​​a cake again. As always it was great fun, it was not for anything special, just to get out a little creativity. Not the most advanced cake either, but  simplicity is often the best they say :) A lot of  cake bakers  seems to think that to bake the cake and make the filling is the most boring part , but I must say I really enjoy  making the cake and filling as well. Mostly I try to think up new flavours and combinations and it is always exciting to taste  if it is good or not: D This cake is a white cake with cinnamon caramelized sunflower seeds filled with a cherry and orange cream, it was very good and fresh.

Coconut delight

This delightful small things are actually made as a a low-carb sweet. Even though I make all this sweet cakes i like to stay away from carbs as much as possible. But sometimes it is just not possible . So this Coconut truffles are a substitute for my favourite chocolate,  Bounty.

Something sweet for the evening tea

This is really a fast and great way of serving something nice to your guests if you don't have time to make a cake. You can just make a Shortcrust pastry dough when you have time and make small  shortcrust pastry "cups". The great part with these cups is that you can fill them what ever you have and like. This ones I filled with some orange fillets ,chopped roasted hazelnuts, some strawberries and topped them with an orange cream,strawberries and chocolate . They where very tasty and very easy to make as well .

A last cake for my dear dad

This cake I made for my fathers funeral. This is exactly how I am picturing him now. Sitting in heaven enjoying himself doing what he loved most to do, laughing a bit at us down here on earth and wondering why we don't have time to take a break and enjoy our life a bit.

RIP DEAR DAD  18.09.35-06.11.11

I am back again

Here is a small post after a long brake.  It has been a very busy autumn and winter where it has happened more then I really wanted.  My dear dad past away in the beginning of November and  after his death it has been a lot to do, both emotionally and  of practical sort. But anyway I feel my strength is coming back and I am ready to bake again. Here is a few cakes I didn't have time to post before.
