Strawberry-Mascarpone Cake

The always favorite pair of strawberry and chocolate come together again in this cake. A chocolate cake is topped with a fruity strawberry mascarpone cream, topped with beautiful fresh strawberries and a strawberry sauce, which oozes down the cake. Mmmmm .... a real summer delight.

Cherry-Mascarpone Cake

Happy Valentine's Day to you all! This cake combines two of my Valentine's Day favorites:  chocolate and cherries. It's not difficult to make, but still looks very special. It also comes in a small size, which makes for a perfect Valentine's Dessert for you and your sweetheart.

No-Bake Lime Cheesecake

If you are like me and miss summertime right now, this no-bake cheesecake is a great dessert to bring a little sunshine on your plate. The oatmeal cookie crust tastes especially good and is a great base for the very fresh and creamy tasting quark-mascarpone cream.

Zimtsterne (cinnamon stars) and a Merry Christmas!

Zimtsterne (Cinnamon-Stars) are a form of traditional treats that are associated with Christmas. You will find it in almost every household in Germany around this time of the year. It is a relatively simple and fun recipe, and the ingredients are also quite easy to obtain. Baking them is a good reason for a family to gather and celebrate the holidays.

Speaking of which, we have reached yet another year. Thank you all for reading my blog (and, of course, continue support). I hope you enjoy your Christmas and New Year holidays.

Amarena Cupcakes

The cupcakes I have made for you today, are a real treat. Amarena cherries are very popular in Germany, especially the amarena ice-cream sundae is a favorite flavor in gelaterias. Here I combined the cherries with almonds, as those two really complement each other, since Amarena cherries are soaked in Amaretto, an almond liquor. The topping is made with heavy cream instead of buttercream, which makes it a little bit lighter. These cherries can be bought either in the supermarket, or you can make them yourselves, when cherries are in season.
