Happy World Animal Day

Hi guys!

Today is World Animal Day! Today is the day we pamper our furry little friends even more than we usually do. We hug them until they hate us and feed them cookies until the vet says they’re almost obese. Oh wait, let’s not overdo it.

There’s a world full of animal cake, animal cupcakes and animal proof treats for our best friends. It’s called Pinterest πŸ™‚ I just LOVE all those animal themed treats. How cute are they!

Game of Thrones: Sansa’s Lemon Cakes

Hi guys!

I love Game of Thrones.Β I haven’t seen the entire series yet, nor have I finished all the books. But god I love that story! It’s not good for my heart though.

Martin for writing so well πŸ˜‰

Mini Biscoff Cake for Mother’s Day

Hi guys!

Happy Mother’s Day to all wonderful moms! Most of my blogging friends have already shared their Mother’s Day posts earlier this year. But, as always, Antwerp does things differently πŸ˜‰ We celebrate Mother’s Day at the Catholic holiday. Because we’re all saints x’D In 1913, a liberal alderman from Antwerp declared the 15th of August as the Day of Mothers because Maria was the mother of all mothers and this was her holiday.Β A year later, the American President Wilson decided that Mother’s Day would takeΒ place every second Sunday in May. Many countries and cities followed the American idea, except for Antwerp. We still celebrate our moms on the 15th of August and we always will πŸ™‚

I was breaking my head about what kind of dessert I should make my mom. I figured it needed to be a cake. But what kind of cake? And what kind of shape? Did I have to make a heart shaped cake because I love my mom so much? Which I really do! Or should it be something with flowers because that’s what moms like? It took me a week to find the perfect Mother’s Day Cake for my mom. And how perfect it is. I gave her a mini Biscoff Cake so she can have it all for herself without having to eat cake for the next 5 days (she wouldn’t mind eating this cake all week though) AAAAND she LOVES Biscoff cookies! Bingo!

July Favorites

Hi guys!

Happy August! Summer holidays are halfway through here in Belgium. Which means you still need to keep the kids busy for three more weeks. Summer camps are always a good idea but they may have gone to one already and now they’ll stay home for the rest of the Summer. Maybe you could drop them off at the grandparents? That’s fun! Or you can search some other Summer activities. Ever thought about taking some time off and bake something with the kids? These July Favorites can definitely give you some inspiration!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Hi guys!

There are certain food combinations that always work. White chocolate and raspberries are no different! I love sweet raspberries but this cake actually needs the less sweet ones. They are the perfect counterparts forΒ the sweet white chocolate. I know it’s true because my mom often says my desserts are too sweet and she didn’t say it this time πŸ˜‰

Hi guys!

I know the combination of apple and cinnamon does make us think of Autumn. But I don’t really care. I just love apples and cinnamon and I can eat it in any season I want. Right? πŸ™‚ Or is it really not done to make these kind of recipes in Summer?

Anyway, the boyfriend absolutely loved these little cakes filled with love πŸ˜‰ Now isn’t that the most important?
