These cake pops were such a huge hit at our Gender Reveal Party. They were my favourite as well but after the Pregnant Belly Cake I already showed you in my previous post. They taste delicious, are super easy to make and honestly you can’t go wrong with anything that involves red velvet and cream cheese frosting .
Time: 120 min, Prep: 80 min. Cook: 40 min.

For red velvet cake:
I’m baking something pretty special this time… a bun in the oven . This is the reason I haven’t been so active on the blog lately. We decided to organize a Gender Reveal Party and since I’ve started regaining some of my energy back I figured this would be the perfect occasion for another cake experiment. Apart from this cake I made some blue and pink cake pops and cupcakes for which I promise to post the recipes shortly. I placed a blue gum ball in one of the cupcakes so the lucky person who chose that cupcake was the first to find out we were expecting a baby boy. We had Team Blue vs. Team Pink playing a game, similar to beer pong except we used milk instead : )). The losing team had to drink milk from baby bottles and I must say, that was extremely fun to watch! Hopefully other moms-to-be will find this post inspiring . So now let’s get started on the step-by-step recipe for the pregnant belly cake.

This Bean, Beet & Lentil Salad is super easy to make and so healthy. The beans and beets are a great source of nutrients such as fiber, iron, vitamins A & C, magnesium, calcium and others. I love this salad and am very thankful to my friend Cristina for sharing the recipe . It’s a great option for vegetarians/vegans as well. So I encourage you to try making it and just dig in and enjoy this super healthy and delicious salad!

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe. I’ve been busy with family matters and enjoyed a relaxing vacation in the Caribbean but I’m glad to (finally) say that I am back. I hope everyone had a great holiday season with friends, family and great food.
I made these lard cookies for Christmas (yes, I know, took me a while to post this ). It’s a very basic and old recipe that I know from my mom. She always used lard for these cookies but you can use butter as a substitute. The texture will be a little different though (sandier when using lard)… and the taste as well. You might think that lard is just fat and not good for you but it’s actually healthier than butter. Lard is great in pie crusts as well; it adds a great flavour and gives the crust a nice flaky texture.

I am so excited I managed to make this Topsy Turvy Cake for my birthday despite the time constraints. I think this is the biggest cake I made in the shortest time but, thanks to my husband who offered to help shaping the fondant balls (he’s an expert now ), I managed to finish the cake before our guests started arriving. And not to mention, this was my first time properly stacking a cake using dowel rods, cake boards etc. When you’re making a cake that takes more time to decorate, it’s better if you choose a filling that’s easier to make. And what can be easier than chocolate ganache? For the basic recipe you only need two ingredients – whipping cream and chocolate – and you can enhance this by adding fruit or ground walnuts for example. Everything I used in this recipe was homemade, from the cake layers and the filling to the buttercream, fondant and decorations.
Time: Prep & Decorating: 5 hrs. (this includes time for making the fondant/buttercream/decorations as well) Cook: 30min. per batch of cakes & 15min. for the filling + 3 hrs chilling time
Servings: 35-40 [Read More...]
