This was the design chosen by the birthday girl which brought a priceless smile at the results! I used the classical simple cake recipe which you will find on this post…

or, you could use the 100 % natural cake recipe which you will find on that one…

I could not use natural products as the design demanded coloring and sugar but you could innovate or cover it with the natural Ganache on the second link I gave you.
Do not be afraid to be creative and if it doesn’t come out perfect the overall effect and the heart put in it is what will count.

The main thing is that you and everyone around should enjoy the experience!

Last week I posted an apple crumble crust cheap and easy which you can look up here… https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/2013/04/15/apple-pie-cheapest-easiest-and-fastest-crust-recipe-with-the-simplest-of-ingredients-obviously-100-natural/

Today, I will give you an update… My different flavors to that dough recipe which I thought was my ingenuity 🙂 but Wikipedia is the correct source of information, so I looked it up there to check if my ideas were just mine and that’s what I came up with…

The best-known strudels are Apfelstrudel (German for apple strudel) and Topfenstrudel (with sweet soft quark cheese, in German Topfen cheese), followed by the Millirahmstrudel (Milk-cream strudel, Milchrahmstrudel). Other strudel types include sour cherry (Weichselstrudel), sweet cherry, nut filled (Nussstrudel), Apricot Strudel, Plum Strudel, poppy seed strudel (Mohnstrudel), and raisin strudel.[7] There are also savory strudels incorporating spinach, cabbage, pumpkin, and sauerkraut,[8] and versions containing meat fillings like the (Lungenstrudel) or (Fleischstrudel).
The only thing that changes is the baking time which goes down to 1 or 1.30 hrs versus the 2 to 2.15 hrs for the apple pie which has a much bigger amount of dough. I nevertheless check in between to make sure it does not over bake.

I put this time on the rolled out dough a different filling of, carob or cacao powder for the nonsensitive, a lot of raisins to get it sweet with less natural sweetener, a big spoon of rice syrup or honey or even sugar for those who use that, in other rolls I will add poppy seeds to all those ingredients…

I have tried all kinds of different nuts with raisins which is just heavenly, but that was about twenty years ago today I find them harder to digest, nevertheless it can occasionally be a good idea. Almond powder can be good too with natural sweetener or sugar.

Some will have cinnamon, raisins, 1 big spoon of rice syrup and a dash of oil…

You can innovate… Be the master of your own creation and risk different flavors or just follow the so many different ideas we got here from Wikipedia 🙂

Good luck with it and most importantly have loads of fun. It’ll taste much better that way. Let me know whatever the outcome is and all the more if it’s a big humoristic flop, the best ideas have been created that way!

Hi everyone!

I’m posting a photo of a birthday cake which I found ( the example )
on the internet and took me three hours to reproduce, not with the usual sugar paste
but with marzipan, as that was the available ingredient.

I played around with food coloring to get to the wanted image, the cake is
the usual ” Hello Kitty ” recipe.
Marzipan is a bit of a nuisance, it’s sticky business, but you can see for yourself the results.
The birthday girl was over the moon and so was I 🙂
What do you think?
