Happy birthday cake

I celebrated my 26th birthday yesterday and had a lovely time. I’m not really interested in my own birthday, only the part where I get to hang out with my dear ones. But I also celebrated the fact that I’m starting to get this blog, this page and Verkstad 42 up and running.

When it comes to other people’s birthdays however, I loooove it. For Emaanuel’s birthday I participated in a “cake decoration course” held by Ultimate Cake here in Malmö. With the result shown here:



I really enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone interested in cakes, cake decorations, crafts, pastry and desserts. It felt like working with clay. The decorations are all made from sugar paste.

I sculpted the flowers by rolling som sugar paste to a funnel, and then – with the help from a toothpick – I gently pushed the past over my fingers to make the “creases”, and to thin out the paste at the likes of a petal. It took some time, but it was very satisfying to see the end result. And it tasted delicious as well…


Until next time
