When I was pregnant I tried to stay away from any sweet desserts thinking that they will just increase my weight and as such are of no health benefit to my baby and me.. But since I delivered I have this intense desire to eat cakes and chocolates.. So after trying to control my sweet tooth for a month I have finally given up and I have started baking cakes almost every next weekend:)
The first one(clockwise) I baked and decorated for my mom on her birthday..It was a chocolate cake with strawberry butter cream icing inside..I baked and decorated it at midnight when my then 1.5 months old baby was sleeping..So did a hurried job on decorating the cake fearing he will awake soon.. I used store-bought marzipan to decorate the top and the sides.. also made swills with icing on the sides..The verdict was that it tasted yummy and looked very homely:) You can see its slice in the last picture..
Next picture is of angel food cake I baked .. a healthier cake without eggs, oil, butter.. It was very light and frothy ..so light it was that it reminded us of the Austrian soufflé/ salzburger nockerl we had on our Austrian holiday.. Next pic is of chocolate muffins on one such weekend.. Couldn't take picture of the finished one as I gobbled up a few too many as soon I baked them:)
