Wedding cake with beech leaves

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

As the premises were decorated with beech branches, the bride and groom decided on a simple cake design, with a white base and beech leaves ‘growing’ over the cake. Continue reading Wedding cake with beech leaves

What’s New!

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!

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!

Whats new!

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 worked with Squires Kitchen sugarpaste, and I am becoming increasingly happy with the consistency and the results.

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 also tried out Squires Kitchens Flexi-ice mixture, which I will cover in detail in another post.

I am also playing around with my airbrush Continue reading Whats new!

Whats new!

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!
