Lots of cakes to show you today.

Last weekend we had some visitors and I needed to make some kind of cake. I dediced to try new cupcakes. These cupcakes were made with mandarins. There are mandarins inside the dough and on the topping. Topping was made of cream and curd. I made some kind of confetti out of the peel of the mandarins.
The cupcakes were really delicious.
And I tried to make some Macaroon. They became very small (the dough didn´t work like I wanted it) but tasted very good. They were made with a filling of butter, raspberrysirup and raspberrys.




Yesterday was the birthday of a close friend. Although it´s not yet the season for strawberrys in germany now, I really wanted to make her a japanese birthday cake. I tried a new receipe from the book Tanoshii. Normally I use this receipe:

The cake is still not perfect (I have to practice a lot) but it´s nicer than my try in december.



And finally the most time consuming project of this week. (took me about 8-10 hours until completely finished)
A special birthday cake for a 30th birthday party
The decoration had a special meaning for the `birhtday child`.
I used a chocolate cake. I filled and covered it with Ganache before using the fudge. It´s the first time that I made a figure out of fudge for a cake. So I think I could have done worse ;-)
(unfotunately the small details aren´t visible on this picture)
