This is my new go-to recipe for chocolate cake. It is moist, intense, velvety and so delicious. I used it for this cake and this cake, and several other cakes that I either forgot to photograph or haven’t posted about yet.
A couple of weeks ago, my friend got married. It was a beautiful late spring wedding, it was warm and sunny, the church was lovely and the reception was held in an old train station (which my husband loved) decorated with beech branches.
I had been asked to bring the cake, and couldn’t resist the opportunity to make a wedding cake
Well, first the summer weather seemed to have left again, it was cold, gray and wet, but then summer came back!
We had a three day weekend, where we had some family over for dinner, I spend an afternoon with some friends and we relaxed. Also, I bought a new bicycle, with electricity.
Kristian has planted a rosemary in a pot on our balcony, the one we had last year didn’t make it. He also planted three Continue reading What’s New!→
So, it has been a while again. A whole month since last What’s New! post, but there have been a few cake posts since.
I spend a lot of time at work (not surprising with a full time job), and 2-3 hours a day commuting, that time in particular I can see a better use for, but that would involve moving.
I went to my cousins wedding a few weeks ago, the dinner and party was in a cabin in the middle of the woods. Lovely evening and I saw a badger! I don’t have a picture of the badger, because I was driving, but look at the pretty placecard!

I like our apartment. I like that we have space for our stuff now, I like that we have the wall space for a huge world map wall sticker. I like watching the trains go by, either through the windows Continue reading Purple Cake→
It has been a week and a half since my last What’s new! post so it seemed like time for another one!
But what is new? Well, first of all it has been easter, which means time of from work. We spend some family time and I made a lot of bread, as well as a sample cake for a wedding cake I am making in May.
I also tried out FMM’s easiest ever rose cutter, and while the roses turned out okay, I can’t seem to get them quite as nice as the ones on the internet… I guess it is a case of practice makes perfect.
I have considered starting a regular update on what is happening, since posting recipes on a schedule doesn’t seem to be going so well.
So whats new?
We went on our honeymoon in the beginning of March. We went to Cape Verde, to the island of Boavista and spend a week relaxing, enjoying the warm weather, the beautiful sea and a few good books.
When we got home I got the flu, and was sick for a week, which really sucked, fever, phlegm, sore throat, the works. Good thing I have a singing Soft Kitty. Now I am more or less over it, but still tired. Continue reading Whats new!→
This cake was made for some good friends, for the christening of their little daughter. The cake was fun to make, I got to play around with my airbrush – it is a bit nerve-wrecking to stencil directly on a covered cake!
