I always loved to bake and latley I have been taking my cake baking to the next level. For does that follow me on Instagram have probably already noticed it. I am also extremely restless as a person and need to have a project at my hands all the time. Baking is a way for me to express my creativity, trying out different flavors, shapes and decoration styles is so much fun and therapeutic.
Today we are going to Gunnars family cabin and I made a Easter Cake to bring with us.
I am looking for vintage midcentry modern interior for the new house, the house was built in late 1960 and we want to mix modern and 60s. It is a bit of a challenge to find the perfect pieces, I try to go as often as I can to second hand stores to not miss anything that could come in. So far Ive found some really nice items that I know will look perfect in the new house 👌
This old brass pendant lamp will be in our guest bath by the main entrance. The bathroom is small and narrow and will be painted in a dark shade so I think brass will look good in there.
My new LOVE – I was so happy when I found this beauty for only 4.500kr.
All of a sudden round mirrors are hard to find, this used IKEA mirror only cost me 1.200kr and it is in good condition.
I could buy 100 candle holders every time I visit a second hand shop. These are from a old menu collection and will look good anywhere.
Do you know of any second hand stores that are good close to RVK?
I am looking at wall colors for the new house. Our apartment today is extremely Scandinavian with all walls white, white oiled wooden floors and white furniture. In the new house we decided to not have any white walls, all rooms will be painted in different dust shades and we will also redo the floors but haven’t decided what type of floors yet, I think they will be bleached gray or dark oak wooden floors.
Turn on oven to 175c upper/lower or fan. Then prepare the cupcake paper molds, make sure to the paper molds is in a cupcake baking mold holder (this was hard to explain) otherwise they will not have a nice shape and most likely leak out all over your oven. The paper molds I use in the pictures is from Lagerhaus.se
Sift flour, potato flour, cacao powder and baking powder in a bowl. Preheat the eggs and sugar in a pot, just so they get finger warm and the sugar is melted, pour into a bowl and whisk white and fluffy withan electric mixer.
Sift in little by little of the flour mixture into the whipped egg mixture and stir gently with a spoon until smooth. You want to have it super fluffy still but well mixed.
Pour the mixture intothe cupcake molds (fill a little less than half of each mold) and bake in the middle of oven for 15-20 minutes.
Take out and Let them cool down completely.
300g butter (smör)
5 msk cacao powder (kakóduft)
5 dl icing sugar (flórsykur)
2 tsk vanilla sugar (vanillusykur)
4 msk syrup (síróp)
Whisk the butter fluffy withan electric mixer (about 5min). Then add the rest of the ingredients exp the syrup. Use a spoon at first to blend it all together and then whisk again with the electric mixer and add the syrup.
Make sure the cupcakes (cake bottoms) are not warm at all. Then I make/dig a hole in the middle of all of the cake bottoms with a small teaspoon or knife, make sure to not go too deep, the hole is to put in some delicious cream in.
Then place 1/3 of the chocolate cream in a spritzer cone with a spoon and cut a whole at the end of the cone, fill up your cake bottoms (in the wholes we made) with the chocolate cream.
and here comes the fun part, take a new spritzer cone and select what type of shape you want your cupcakes to have, I did the classic cupcake look with a star shaped spritzer.
Then you can store your cupcakes in the cooler for 2-3 days.
Let me know if you try my recipe and how you liked it :)
