Cake Lemon Butterfly

My sweet little princess is 7! It’s a little bit hard to believe but I’m trying 🙂

So for this occasion a cake was a must. But time was strict so I had to move fast. 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.

Honey-Peach Ice Cream

Honey-Peach Ice Cream

These ice creams are very creamy, with a mild taste of honey and peach. Just we all agreed that next time I will puree all peaches, because those that I chopped became like little ice cristals and were very very cold ? And in the photo you can see what conditions I have almost all the time photographing my creations 😀

Cake with the caramelized bananas

This year my little boy turned 4! And this is his cake. I spend a lot of time looking for the right cake. The choice was good! Maybe a little bit cream was fat, but it was tasty. Also I drizzled sponge with cherry compote. For 6 people the cake was too big, so leftovers I freezed and now I can enjoy it with the afternoon coffee 🙂

Gluten-free poppy seed cake with lemon glaze

For those, who still have left poppy seeds from Christmas. For those, who is seeking gluten-free cake. For those, who adore poppy seeds and lemon combination (it’s really worth trying!). This cake is really delicious, despite it contains only a few ingredients. I used 17cm diameter form, but original suggested to use 19cm diameter form. You should decide what size you will choose by yourself 🙂

Cream waffles

When I found this recipe I was so exited that baked them a few weekends for breakfast. Cream makes them frangible and even when they are cold they stay very tasty. I bake half of the portion but it’s enough for two kids and two parents for the light breakfast. I really recommend you!
