Two cakes

One, two, three Birthday buiscuit

The dough:

3 eggs
60 g sugar
90 g flour (or 70 g flour & 20 g cocoa powder)
1 tsp. baking soda

Stir together and bake by 250°C

The decoration

Because I did the version with the cocoa and the cake was therefor very chocolaty I decided to put some cherrys and vanilla creme on the cake. Make sure you have enough time for the creme to set. I did the whole cake the evening before I planned to serve it. 1 hour before I served it I sprinkeld some cocoa powder and sugar sprinkels all over it to make it look playful and ready for the birthday party.

The Beet Cake

I know ''BEET CAKE''???????? But trust me its super duper tasty and so easy to make. I found the recipe on vimeo. A very beautiful video.

Beet Cake

The dough:

2 cups beet (shredded and precooked)
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3/4 semi sweet chocolate bar (melted)
1/4 tesp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup butter
3 eggs

Stir together and bake by 375° ( I baked on 220° C and it was pretty well, because I think the video is reffering to Farenheit)

The Frosting:

I did a frosting thoug it isn`t mentioned in the video.

3 sp. pickeld beet water 
2 sp. butter
2 sp. sugar
3 sp. cream cheese

melt the butter and stir very well with the other inridients until it is a well set almost firm and pinkish cream. Do the frosting. Add sprinkels if you like.

Enjoy your meal

Yummy, yummy

Long time, no see

I haven`t blogged for a while because the courses have started and I am very motivated this semester. Therefor I am working a lot. But now I have some news for you. I attended a theater group, ''Uschis Erben''. We are trying to participate in ''Impro''. It`s alot of fun and the other group members are very funny, friendly and creative. It`s a total win. Maybe we will perform in public next spring.
Next thing exiting is that I will start to work in december. Its only the december but Iam very exited.

Some of you may know, that I am almost broke, since I had problems to apply for my study credits. Therefore I was searching a job since August to bridge the time until I get the credit. I didn`t find a job. So I haven`t done  alot of  things like  going out or testing restaurants.
But I baked some cakes and I tested a new buffet in october. I will post hte recipies for the tasty cakes soon.

But first I will give you a short review to: Mongolian Buffet (wich opend in october in my neighbourhood)

The name says all: it is a pure buffet with a lot of mongolian and asian specialyties. You have a great range of main dishes and trimmings, a salat buffet a sushi buffet and a dessert buffet. In addition they offer  raw vegetables, mushrooms and meat (pork, chicken, kangaroo, different kinds of fish and red meat). When you have decided what you want, the raw ingridients will be shimmerd live on a mongolian barbecue. That is very tasty. Very, very, tasty and very fresh.
You have to pay one price for the whole evening and you can eat what and how much you want.
I also appriceated the beautiful decoration and the light concept but have a look on yourself:

 Isn`t that cute and pretty??????
