Whole-grain bread rolls

There are not many things that can beat the whole grain bread, unless it's 8 delicious little whole grain breadrolls ;-) These are perfect for breakfast, and you can easily prepare and bake them in one evening, for e.g. Sunday breakfast! :-)

My fool-proof recipe will be a great fun, and a good addition to your baking arsenal.

Swiss meringue buttercream

This is a medium-advanced cake cream, that requires some more work than buttercream, but also makes for a more fluffy, creamy icing. It's still not the hardest one, and definitely worth the effort! You will love the silky texture and firm, almost buttery-like consistency. It's a clear winner for cakes and decorative, ornamental (ruffles, anyone?) cupcake decorations.

PS: The picture shows decorated cupcake with the swiss meringue buttercream, look how amazing the ruffle looks, and the silky smooth surface is! :-)

French toast

I believe in food recycling, i.e. when something is still edible, and there is a delicious and healthy way to eat it, then why not? We should never let our food spoil, even when there's overabundance of it! :-) Enjoy these delicious, savory French toasts, which make a perfect weekend breakfast.

Buttercream

I started my cake-making adventure lately, and the first, most basic cream used to ice the cake is the buttercream — it's very simple, and makes a delicious, thick and stable cake cream that you will love!

As you can see in the recipe image, I used it already in my vanilla butterscotch cupcakes, which got rave reviews from my friends and coworkers! :-) Unfortunately the cream alone is rather not spectacular, just a sweet, delicious blob of butter and sugar ;-)
