Ruben had his birthday and a favourite at the moment is Lightning McQueen and so that was to be the cake. He through in the wish for The King as well, so it was two cakes on one.
Another wish was a cake that tasted like Coca Cola, so that was anew challenge. The cars were made of chocolate cake with strawberry filling as you need a drier cake to make the car cakes.
The bottom, or the street and grass was then the coca cola cake. I found a great recipe for that and it was a very moist cake with just enough flavour of the coke not to overpower it all.
And as for every birthday for Ruben I made Runeberg pastries, or as Ruben now called it Rubenberg pastries. I tried a new method this year, no cupcake forms but a big cake and cutting out the individual cakes. I think that gives a much better end result.
My dear grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday this October at the time when we were enjoying the most wonderful autumn colours around us. So I wanted to reflect that in my cake. I was inspired by the red, yellow and … Continue reading →
Sebastian turned 10 and as a keen football player this year he had wished for a football cake. It should be him with a ball standing against the football net.
The net turned out to be the biggest challenge. I tried to do it with sugarpaste but as I feared it all crumbled to pieces when it was time to out the pieces together. So it became a cake where Sebastian stands against pillars of footballs and a net tossed in a pile. Sebastian was very sweet and said that actually this was really good as it showed him having such a fierce football kick that he broke the net :)
The cake was Sebastian’s favorite. Chocolate cake with dark and white chocolate mousse filling, raspberry jam and fresh kiwi pieces.
It was covered with chocolate butter cream and marsipan and sugarepaste.
It was finally Linettes birthday that she had been waiting for for, well forever. Even though she changed her mind about many things in between, she did always say she wanted a Cinderella cake for her birthday.
So that is what she got, of course. The cake was made with vanilla sponge cake and a cranberry and dark chocolate mousse filling. It was covered with orange buttercream and sugar paste and marzipan.
I was very honoured to get asked to make the cakes for my friends daughter’s baptism. As they call her their little princess that was an obvious theme for the cakes. I wanted to make them quite colourful and fun, but still keep with traditional baby girl colours. So it became a princess cake and a cake with a cheeky little baby peeking out from her pram with a rabbit doing the pushing.
The cakes were different in look and taste.
One was a choclate cake with mango and raspberry mousse filling. Covered with chocolate buttercream and sugarpaste.
The second was a new experiment. Ginger- cinnamon sponge cake with caramel mousse, pear and dark chocolate mousse. I was worried the cake was going to be too sweet, so I held back on the filling, which made the cake slightly dry. Next time more filling, is thus the conclusion. They were covered with liquer butter cream and sugarpaste.
