Two of my cupcakes *proud*
I was invited to decorate and eat cakes and cupcakes by the sweet Manuela from the blog Passion4Baking and Dr. Oekter at Bølgen&Moi Nydalen. Armed with frosting, cake decorations and and pre-made cakes&cupcakes we learned how to make roses and swirls. I am not really that much of cook, I like to eat food but I prefer to leave the making and baking to other people. Decorations are of course another matter entirely, but I still pretty much suck at it. But with Manuela’s help I managed to make a chocolate frosting rose and some other nifty little decorations that would surprise anyone who’ve seen me in the kitchen. Got a goodie bag filled with cake decorations and forms, and I am looking forward to trying out some of this at home. yeah.
Got to take the cake and cupcakes home, which meant a rocky road by bus from Nydalen to St Hanshaugen with Nora, while trying to protect the cakes from the constant lurks of the bus. And they actually survived. Now I am contemplating whether or not I want to eat them now, they are nearly too pretty to eat.
My cake, not entirely finished, but nearly there. Very pink and full of pearls.
