Tortas "Citrininis Drugelis"

Cake Lemon Butterfly

I chose this cake because it was with lemon, so had to be refreshing, and it was in butterfly shape – it had to fit for my daughter’s birthday, because she love every creature that is alive 🙂 And I was wright! The cake was very good! I baked only half portion, but it was really enough for 6-8 people. Only next time I would bake only 2/3 of sponge, because we like when cake is almost all of cream and sponge is a very thin layer. But you should decide by yourself.

Desertinis varškės sūris

Sweet cheese

This is the case when for good dessert you have to pay pretty much money, but also you can easily prepare it at home and the cost will be significantly less. I know that it needs some time for setting down but it really worth it.

Spanguolių vitaminai

Cranberry vitamins

We all dream about spring, but winter is still here, and all deseases are still here. So I suggest to make this vitamin mixture and be really healthy till the warm days will come. It takes only minutes, and tastes wonderfully. Especially if you don’t like citrus fruit bitterness in other the same kind vitamin mixtures.

Nekeptas varškinis tortukas

Cottage cheese cake without baking

Light and easy cake for cottage cheese lovers. We like it because it contains only cottage cheese, no fat cream. So it”s very good for those who looks after body shape.

Sūrio tortas

Cheesecake

This year we met at home only with kids. So the preparation for the evening wasn’t much. This cake in all recipe sources got a lot of compliments. I agree with them – it’s really good and simple. I used 26cm cake form. And I really suggest you to warm the mascarpone and condensed milk mixture, because if you won’t do it you’ll get lumps when you pour gelatine (Then I had to put the mixture in a warm bath and wait till mixture warms and lumps dissolve).
