Making a bride (and myself) happy – the biggest challenge yet

It’s been a while, and to be honest, I don’t know why I haven’t shared this until now. But here, finally, are some impressions from the wedding cake I made this summer. It was really really stressful and challenging, but it was one of the coolest experiences of my life until now. Not that I didn’t have enough challenge already writing my thesis… Well, you do need some distraction from time to time.

So, what was so cool about making that wedding cake? Making a bride (and myself) happy – the biggest challenge yet weiterlesen


Ombre Mint Choc Meringue Cake

It has been a little more than one week since I had my last day at work. Now I’m officially just a student again. This is pretty weird, as I’ve worked at XING for almost one year. My last day has been a real tearjerker for me; so many of my nice colleagues came and said goodbye (and ate ALL the cupcakes and cake pops I brought – that has never happened to me before. People usually don’t seem to be half as excited about cake as me). Ombre Mint Choc Meringue Cake weiterlesen


My slightly extravagant Birthday Cake

This year I decided to make myself a birthday cake. A decent birthday cake. A slightly exaggerated birthday cake perhaps. It turned out to be „the most beautiful cake“ my friend had ever seen (she’s so cute!), more like a wedding cake than a birthday cake, and even I was a little impressed with what I had done. It wasn’t as much work as I thought it would be (I estimated four full days), but I actually had so much fun making all the sugar flowers that I probably didn’t even notice the hours passing by… My slightly extravagant Birthday Cake weiterlesen


Snickers Cupcakes

Let’s make it short: I know I didn’t post anything for the last three months.
But I’ve got something for you that will definitely make you forgive me.
A huge, rueful apology from the bottom of my heart…

Just kidding.

And not just any cupcakes! Incredibly moist Devil’s food cupcakes with the best thing I ever made (until now) on top: salty peanut butter Swiss Meringue Buttercream.
Oh, and also caramel. Snickers Cupcakes weiterlesen
