In-laws gold weddingcake

A gold weddingcake for my in-laws - I would have liked more gold on it, but the colour was nearly impossible to paint with, not at all as I remember it. But nice to know I still have some skills, I was actually pretty nervous about this one...

It´s a layer-cake with strawberry mousse and lime syrup - nice and light because we had it after a scrumptious dessert-buffet :)

The figurine on top is the original from their wedding 50 (!) years ago, so very nice - makes me sad I didn´t save the one from our own wedding 20 (!!) years ago. But that one was terribly plastic anyway, so never mind.

Sealand Cakeshow 2013

This is my contribution to Sealand Cake Show 2013. I´ve had the image below lying in my "next project" folder for ages, and if wasn´t for Sealand Cakeshow, I never would have come to creating this little piece. -Which was fortunate, because it won first prize gold - much to my surprise! :)

Easter Bunny, Eggs and Carrots

A mini dummy - just playing around with a new type of fondant. Seems like the fondant-issues i´ve had are close to a solution. A major relief, since i have to make the most important cake ever; My daughter´s confirmation-cake a couple of months from now ;)

I´m beginning to look forward to play with fondant again. Loving this!

25.04.2011: Made it to Cakewrecks Sunday sweets-section - Yay! :) I´m so glad Jen headlined it "a perfect combination of elegance and whimsy" as it was just what i was aiming for - thanks Jen! :)

Easiest Fudge recipe ever

In just about 10 minutes you´ll have prepared a tasty chewable fudge following this easy recipe:
Ingredients: 340g dark chocolate chips - 1 can sweetened condensed milk - 1 tablespoon cream - 1 tablespoon butter - 2 tablespoons peanutbutter

Place chips and milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 2-3 minutes, stirring at 1 minute intervals, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth and thick. Stir in cream, butter and peanutbutter until combined. Pour in a greased baking tin, and leave in a cold place until next day. Cut in bite-sizes.

Makes about 1 kg fudge

Additional; Add marshmellows, chopped nuts, chopped candy canes, dried fruit or try milk/mint chocolate, white chocolate or whatever you feel like :)

I found the recipe here - the reviews are worth reading, many great ideas for this recipe.
