Apple cake

It’s been a while again! Life just sometimes gets hectic, doesn’t it? It’s been a really busy couple of weeks for me – running around to get a lot of errands done and having a lot of fun with friends. Jess came down from Sweden to celebrate her birthday with us in Belgium, which was amazing. My parents were on vacation so I was in charge of all the house work. And I’ve been intensely looking for a job – it’s slow going but I’m booking progress, little by little.

There has been time for baking, though. Just not a lot of time for editing pictures and making posts. I’m going to try to change that soon though. First I bring you these pictures of a simple pound apple cake I made for my aunt a couple of weeks ago. I just love a good apple cake, and those little fondant red and green apples really lifted the cake up, I think. It was for my cousin’s school bake sale and apparently the kids liked it too! Success!

Alice In Wonderland

Here is my three-tier Alice In Wonderland cake! :) I had so much fun making this – it was the first time I made a three tiered cake, and the first time I covered cake with fondant like this. I learned a lot – mainly¬†that it’s not easy to line a cake with fondant. I’m pretty sure this is gonna take a lot of practice to get completely right! But I’m really pleased with how it turned out, and more importantly: my aunt and cousin liked it as well. And since I made the cake for them (my cousin’s school, more precisely) that’s what matters most!

The bottom cake is the chocolate cake I posted about here, the top two tiers are pound cake. All cakes were cut in two with butter cream in between, and the lathered with more butter cream. All figures are handmade (my mom made the caterpillar and cards though, she loves doing that stuff.) I’m really fond of the hat I made :D (tutorial here)

Rainy days

June 8, 2012

How’s the weather been treating you? Here (here being Western Europe) June hasn’t been very nice to us. The end of May/Beginning of July was very warm and very sunny, but the last week has been rainy and cold. Me, I really like rain though. Mostly when I’m inside to enjoy it, but I don’t mid it all that much when I’m outside either. Today I decided to make some cupcakes to celebrate the rain, and then sun.
