Festive Javanais

Hi guys!

One of my absolute favorite things is Javanais. If you would present me a plate of lovely patisserie and there is a Javanais amongst them, I’d definitely pick him. Over and over again. Even is you ask me day after day. It’s my all-time favorite!

This Christmas won’t be all about typical Christmas desserts. I’d like to make some yummy festive desserts as well. This Javanais is no exception. I’ve added some gold to make it look festive enough for the Christmas dinner. What do you guys think?

Homemade Marzipan Potatoes

Hi guys!

Santa is coming… I was so busy planning for Christmas I almost forgot my favorite part of St. Nicholas: Marzipan! How could I forget? Sure, my Christmas Desserts are important. As is the wrapping paper that matches the bows I bought. But I do want to take a day or two off to enjoy some homemade Marzipan Potatoes πŸ˜‰ It’s so easy to make you really don’t have a proper excuse.

Whittard English Rose Tea & Raspberry Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Can you feel the Christmas spirit coming? No? No problem, it’s still a bit early. I know.
I’ve told you about my OCD (Obsessive Christmas Disorder) so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I am already getting in the Christmas spirit… Bought myself a new Christmas sweater yesterday and almost grabbed a cute little toy dog dressed as Rudolph today. So yes, I’m having it bad xD

I may be crazy about Christmas but I do love you little Grinch people too! The coming weeks will be all about the coziness of Winter instead of pure Christmas joy, Wouldn’t want to scare you away.

These Whittard English Rose Tea Cupcakes are the perfect example! They taste great and look super cute and they are pretty festive as well. Which makes them perfect for Christmas OR cosy evenings by the fireplace. Imagine a fireplace if you don’t have one. Can you feel the coziness? Thought so πŸ˜‰

October Favorites

Hi guys!

How was Halloween?

If I could, I’d skip November and most of December to go straight to Christmas! Or a couple of days before so I can buy presents πŸ˜‰ I just love it so much. The lights in the streets, being together with family, making lovely desserts, giving each other presents, … All that πŸ™‚ Are you excited for Christmas?

We’re not getting in the Holiday spirit just yet. Let’s take a look at the October Favorites first! We’ll get in the mood for Christmas on Tuesday πŸ˜‰

Zombie Unicorn Cake for Halloween

Hi guys!

Happy Halloween!

I bet lots of you are going out tonight in fabulous and terrifying outfits. Others may go door to door with the kids or send the kids to go Trick or Treat-ing. Some of you are going to watch horror movies. If you’re wondering what I’m doing tonight, I think we can rule out the latter. I will be baking tonight, but not for Halloween.

My final Halloween experiment was born last Sunday. Or should I say ‘died’ last Sunday? Don’t know. You tell me πŸ˜‰

May I present to you: Misses Zombie Unicorn!

Black Cat Halloween Cake

Hi guys!

I’ve seen amazing, really scary Halloween creations in the past few weeks. My Mummies weren’t really scary and today’s Halloween recipe isn’t either. But I just love cute Halloweens xD Remember the Frankenstein Cupcakes from last year? Not so scary. See, I have a theme when it comes to Halloween…

Some people want it to be scary, others want it to be cute and another group just doesn’t do Halloween. I for one enjoy it very much, as long as it’s not too scary. You can guess by now that I don’t do horror movies or Halloween ghostrides in theme parks, right?
Yes, I’m easily scared. Yes, I know some may say that’s silly. No, I do not care.

Today’s Halloween recipe may be one for all people. It’s a Black Cat Cake! It’s definitely not scary but it can cause a severe case of Death By Chocolate. Be careful!

Mummy Brownies for Halloween

Hi guys!

I haven’t been abducted by ghosts or black cats. I was busy trying some Halloween recipes for you! And I kinda took a week off. Sometimes you just need to go offline for a while. Get in touch with that inner you or catch up with some friends.
Or series in my case…

Series? Don’t you have to bake something? Yes. Yes, I do. But my dishwasher didn’t feel the same way. He broke down on Saturday. So “Sundays are for baking” suddenly changed to “Sundays are for cleaning”, dish washing and dish washing 😦 I think you can imagine how I felt after that so baking was the last thing on my mind that day because I really didn’t want to do some dish washing again… So instead, I binge-watched Pretty Little liars on Netflix which was the perfect alternative because I’m now almost at the end! Yay!

But I do have a Halloween recipe for you today! It’s cute, not aggressive and perfect to make with the kids: Mummy Brownies!

Homemade Sprits Cookies

Hi guys

Many of you have been watching GBBO. It has been in The Netherlands for 5 years now (Heel Holland Bakt) and Belgium has finally joined the hype with Bake-Off Vlaanderen. I have seen many yummy recipes I’d like to try sometimes but 1 couldn’t be postponed: Sprits Cookies! It is one of my favorite cookies and Heel Holland Bakt had them in one of their episodes this year. No more excuses to not be baking them πŸ˜‰

Cocktail O’Clock with Njam & Grohe

Hi guys!

It’s Friday! Time for some fabulous Cocktails!

A little while ago, I was invited to a Cocktail workshop with Manuel Wouters from Njam and Grohe. That last one presented their newest product to us: Grohe Blue Home. It’s a super innovative tap that gives you fresh, filtered water. Sparkling or not. How cool is that! πŸ˜€ With just one push, you can choose which one you want. Don’t like still water but not a fan of strong sparkling water? No problem, just press the sparkling button first and then push the other one. Tadaaaa: medium sparkling water!

Chocolate Chip Apple Cake

Hi guys!

Who likes apples? I do! I don’t care how apples are used, I love every recipe with them.
But the way I like them most, is in a cake. Haha who knew :p

I love a simple Apple Cake but I wanted to add a little something. The Boyfriend wasn’t feeling so well last week so he had the final say since he wanted a cake so bad. He went for the Apple Cake and I added some chocolate chips πŸ™‚ Because chocolate always makes you feel better πŸ˜‰
