Triple Chocolate Cake

I’ve fallen a bit behind with my posts lately, trying to catch up this weekend and this day is just perfect for a triple chocolate cake as it happens to be birthday of three very special people, my sister and twin nieces in Finland. <3 White, milk and dark chocolate cake with a hint of salt and fresh strawberries. Long recipe post, but based on the feedback […]

Nutella Hazelnut Macarons

All you need is love but a little bit of Nutella does not hurt, right? Nutella is simply divine on it’s own, personally I do not like it on bread, but nothing beats Nutella in a cookie sandwich and it makes a fast and delicious filling for macarons too! I did also use some Nutella in the shells and brushed it in a small stroke to the otherwise […]

Thanksgiving Chocolate Turkey Cake

Thanksgiving Chocolate Turkey – This one is for all my American friends, wishing you a Very Happy Thanksgiving! I never celebrated thanksgiving myself but after seeing pictures of dozens of cute turkey cake pops and mini cakes with their adorable candycorn tails, all over the internet, I could not resist making a turkey themed cake. And here it is, tail from dark chocolate, sugar sprinklers and white chocolate, chocolate […]

Cherry Flavoured Marshmallows

So Happy to share my first marshmallow recipe, never thought making tasty candy would be this easy! Many recipes call for corn starch, I used only powdered sugar in coating and did not stress too much on coating the sides, which did leave them slightly sticky at first but after allowing them to sit for a while they aren’t sticky anymore. Though I literally used only […]

Moomin & Marimekko Cake Roll

Moomin the second most adored Finnish icon (first one is of course Santa Claus) is present in our every morning coffee ritual, even on a cloudy day – coffee from a colourful Moomin cup brings a smile and gives a perfect start for a day. This morning I decided it was time to try out making a decorated cake roll and I decided to start from moomins. While I was […]

Peppermint Macarons

Red and white… Christmas countdown is on ♥ 41 days left and I can’t wait to travel to Finland and celebrate this special time of year with family and loved ones. Since our trip is getting closer I can start opening some Finnish goodies I’ve been saving up such as Fazer Marianne Crush, my favourite peppermint candies with chocolate, ready crushed, and so perfect for baking! I wanted […]

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

Low carb and by being gluten free, wheat free and sugar free this is a step closer to a healthier carrot cake. For a vegan version, you can use coconut milk instead of cream and a dairy free cream cheese substitute such as tofu cream cheese for frosting. The density of the cake came out right but it could be more moist, thus next time I will try to reduce the […]

Super Mario Cake Pops

Movember is here again, growing moustaches and raising awareness of men’s health issues. I got these Wilton moustache icing decorations few months ago and had almost forgotten about them, until beginning of this month and what better timing for featuring some cute “mo” decorations. Super Mario is my all time favorite video game character and moustache being one of his prominent features I thought turning him into […]

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream

This ice cream recipe was inspired by vegan chocolate mousse recipes I’ve recently come across while looking for dairy free dessert ideas. I had some yolks to use and decided to make it to some ice cream, you could leave the yolks out and keep the recipe vegan, it will not be quite as creamy but would still be yummy served directly after churning.

Coffee & Pecan Macarons

Coffee & Pecan Macarons

A couple weeks ago while out buying some plastic containers, I came across these silicone macaron baking sheets for large macarons, diameter being around 6 cm I thought they’d be perfect for ice cream macaron sandwiches, so I got couple of them. I saved some shells for ice cream and turned 10 of them into coffee & pecan macarons, filled with coffee flavoured milk chocolate […]

Mini Gluten Free Buns & Bagels

These little buns and bagels are very simple and easy to make and takes only about half an hour. They make cute little sandwiches, using sesame seeds on top they’d make nice little burger buns too. Serve hot or cold, filled or on their own. 😛
