Cheese cake

One-year-old Leevi’s favourite food apparently is cheese, so of course the cake was to have a cheese theme.

This cheese however didn’t taste of cheese, but of lime and white chocolate.

 

Congratulations Leevi!

My brother’s wife wished for a combined birthday/graduation cake, but wasn’t sure what kind of a cake she’d want. Together we browsed the internet for ideas, and stumbled on carved watermelons, which became the inspiration for this cake’s theme (without carvings though).

This watermelon didn’t however taste of watermelon, as it had a caramel filling.

The watermelon’s colours were airbrushed on, and the seeds on top were made our of fondant.

 

Congratulations Heli!

Lime and white chocolate cake

Lime and white chocolate cake

Some time ago I organized a cake flavour competition on Juhlakuu’s Facebook page, and as a result, lime and white chocolate was added to the list of available cake flavours.

Research and development is now finished, and a recipe for the filling is now complete.

 

 

Lime and white chocolate filling (for a ø26cm cake)
 2-3 key limes (zest)
 5 dl double cream
 190 g mascarpone cheese
 230 g white chocolate

 

Melt the chocolate carefully in a microwave or on a double boiler. Wash the limes well and grate their zest in with the mascarpone. Add in melted but slightly cooled chocolate and mix until even.

Whip  the cream in a separate bowl and add the whipped cream into the mascarpone-chocolate mix. Stir well and spread in between cake layers.

Lime soda can be used to moisten the cake.

This cake was a 60th birthday present for a woman, who apparently is a big Back to the Sixties fan, and I even got the association’s permission to use their logo in the cake. Apparently she also likes flowers, so I added some to the cake as well.

The flavour of the cake was banana and white chocolate.

 

Congratulations!

 

High heel shoe cake

High heel shoe cake

 

A shoe-loving princess’ birthday cake was of course a shoe box with a high heel shoe and tiara on top. In order to make the shoe, I was able to borrow one of the birthday girl’s favourite pairs of shoes, which I naturally handled with kid gloves… : )

The flavour this time was blueberry and vanilla quark.

 

Congratulations Tiia!
