Swedish semlor

Copenhagen-cakes-Copenhagencakes-semlor-semla-1

These beautiful small cardamum buns filled with whipped cream and marcipan are by far one of my favorite traditional sweets. They’re originally Swedish, but here in Denmark I think it’s safe to say that we’ve fallen in love with them perhaps just as much as the Swedes, and therefore we’re starting to see them pop up here and there in the bakeries – especially in Copenhagen.

Chocolate Pecan Pie

SPONSORED

Hi weekend bakers!

There’s this very special pie that I’ve been wanting to bake for many many years now. Why I haven’t baked it until now is a mystery. I’ve actually even shopped for the ingredients several times, but I always ended up using them for something else before I came to baking the pie.

The pie I’m talking about is a chocolate pecan pie Continue reading

The best chocolate cake ever with Zacapa chocolate ganache

SPONSORED

I am not hesitating to call this cake my best and tastiest creation so far this year. I know those are some pretty big words, but I’m really not exaggerating. This cake is really something. In the most chocotastic, intense and rich way possible.

It gets better and better by each day that it’s allowed to sit in the fridge (but really, who can restrain themselves from eating all of the cake on the first day?). Continue reading

Blue ombre vanilla layer cake with blueberries

I was free to decide how it should look like and what it should taste like, so I took the opportunity to create a blue ombre cake that I had wanted to bake for a long time. I decorated it perfectly ocean themed, and I really like how the result turned out.

I love sophisticated and cakes that show off technique and multiple tastes, layers and textures. But guys, sometimes cakes don’t have to be that complicated. Sometimes simple is the way to go. Don’t you agree?The other day I craved this special Danish cake called “drømmecake” which translates to “dream cake”. It’s a traditional white cake with a seductive layer of shredded coconut sugary mess on top – only this version is a chocolatey version. I have no idea if this cake is particularly Danish or not, so do let me know in the comment section below if you have an equivalent to this cake in your country, and if so, what is it’s name?
