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.
