Last week-end we went to a very special little girl's party. Elsa turned 2 and loves Shaun the Sheep...so I made her a Shaun the Sheep cake.
We are very grateful for Elsa and her lovely family! We met them when we had just lived in Jönköping a few weeks and they have been wonderful friends to us since then.
This cake is made with a vanilla sponge recipe that you can find here. Inside, the cake layers were alternated with cream, strawberry puré and white chocolate! It tasted good and quite fresh as well...except the frosting. I always think that the frosting is too sweet, but to get a cake looking really nice, it usually has to have quite a bit of frosting on it. But I suppose if it is too sweet, you don't need to eat it all ;-).
One of my greatest passions in life is spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking. With one gran who was a cake pro, and my other gran from Sweden with her lovely delicacies and a mom who had the motto that "there is always room (and food) for one more..." then it's only natural that I like food...both making it and eating it;-). I am a South African living presently in Sweden with my wonderful little family and enjoying the adventures of life. I love making tried and tested recipes and I love creating new one's. But most of all, I love sharing food together with the special people in my life. So, welcome in to my kitchen...
