Valentine’s Bakery

I know it’s still a couple of days until Valentine’s Day, but it was weekend and I couldn’t wait to finally try the heart-shaped moulds my mum gave me for Christmas…

So, much to the pleasure of Sabrina who has a sweet tooth just like me, and a bit to the dismay of Graziella who is trying a new diet, I whipped up those chocolate cupcakes and decorated them with home made chocolate ganache. *yum*

Let me ask you, is there any better way to show your love than with chocolate cupcakes in heart-shape, topped with chocolate ganache and heart-shaped pink sprinkles? I don’t believe so… 😉

Hope you’ll have a sweet Valentine’s day! Love you all very much ❤

Austrian cliché

It might be a cliché: but I’m Austrian, and on Sundays we bake.

Well, I mean, it’s not like it’s compulsory or anything. But I daresay that we Austrians do appreciate having a nice cake with our coffee on Sundays – and basically every other day of the week as well 😉

After telling my non-Austrian friends about the Marmorgugelhupf I made last month, I got some requests to reproduce it here in London. First I thought it almost a blasphemy even considering making it in a square pan – but then I thought about cupcakes. Anything goes in cupcake-shape! So this week I made gorgeous, sumptuous and simply yummy marbled cupcakes – and a loaf. Keep your mind open cake-shape-wise! 😉

Happy Sunday, and enjoy your cake! Hmmm 😊
