The roasted almond chocolates have been the initial trick, but the second follows quick. It’s another homemade chocolate creation. Let me introduce you to these cocoa truffles with baileys.
Ping, Ping! It’s Jessi sending me two videos of cakes with astonishing chocolate decoration and asking me which one we should try. But instead of chosing one, I just want to know for which occasion. Who needs a reason to bake cake? It will probably taste as good while sitting alone on the couch. But this cake was for her granny who celebrated her birthday at the beginning of this week (and luckily, I was part of it). So far, so good. Cause her granny is always serving a fresh strawberry cake for this occasion, we definitely knew – We won’t use fruits. Instead, we dug deep into the bag of
tricks calories and managed this Raffaello cake.
Awesome! Finally the weekend has come! I jump out of my bed, I get dressed up, and dash out the door. Stop! What’s going on here? Instead of getting tickled by nice and warm sun beams, I am welcomed by a freezing shower of rain. That figures. You finally have the time to enjoy the sun and than it’s playing hide and seek. Whatever! Lamenting doesn’t get you anywhere, so you have to get something else that might make you happy. And maybe this strawberry stracciatella cake is just about the right thing. It’s full of things that stimulate the release of happiness hormones – lots of fresh strawberries and huge chunks of chocolate.
To all those busy squirrels out there: “You love hazelnuts? It might be healthier for you to look away now!” Just kidding guys. It’s well known that squirrels can’t afford internet access. But if it would be possible and if those busy rodents with their shrubby tail could catch a glimpse of my granny’s nut cake, some of them would probably go green with envy.
Everytime (andI really mean every time) I meet my bestie Jessi, it ends in a proper munching orgy. Sometimes she has freshly baked cookies ready or pulls out a nice ice cream cake. And sometimes I surprise her with newly created buttercream cakes or Cakepops. But our last girls’ night out was even crazier. While we watched a truly typical movie for women, the table in front of us was covered with lots of different delicacies: bborek with cheese, vegetable sticks with a delicious dip (for the healthy appearances’ sake), crisps, cookies, and these awesome salted caramel brownies with a crunchy crust.
