Golden Coconut-Raspberry-Rose-Cake - A Gluten Free Wedding Cake

Sonntag, 19. März 2017

Last month my father married his girlfriend. It was quite spontaneous and they wanted to celebrate very private, all in all we've been only 6 persons at their wedding. Of course Nora and i wanted to give him something special, so we decided to make a wedding cake. Lucky us, that the number of guests was so limited, so the cake didn't had to be that big and everyone could have a big piece of it :) As my father is an artist and works a lot with gold leaf we wanted to create a golden cake. For the rest of the cake and the decoration we decided to stay classic and choose white. The cake batter is refined with grated coconut and vanilla and the filling is made with raspberry jam and whipped cream, which is just the perfect combination! As we finished decorating the cake on the wedding day, we had to shoot these pictures in just 15 minutes, so please excuse the small amount of pictures this time :) The wedding day itself was just as good as one could wish for - the sun was shining and even if it was still february, it almost felt a little bit like spring already. Ater the shortest wedding in the register office you can imagine, we all went home to their house in a very good mood and Nora and I suprised them with the cake and sparklers on top. They didn't expected it at all, so the surprise was luckily successful and they were so happy!
We hope you guys will enjoy this cake as well!

glutenfree apple-cinnamon waffles with pears and a tea infused rosmary - coconut sugar syrup

Montag, 13. März 2017

This weekend you could finally smell spring in the air. The sun was shining, the birds were singing loudly and it was more than 10 degrees - it just felt so wonderful! But when i think about, that it will still take 2 more months until everything is green again, i'm seriously getting impatient. To by-pass this time we keep spoiling us with beautiful spring flowers and this weekend we even got the first beautiful lilacs at our favorite flowershop! Talking about beautiful things: a few weeks ago the most gorgeous package from canada arrived - fully packed with amazing goods from mur lifestyle*, a lovely shop with a very well curated selection, that will make your heart skip a beat for sure! In these pictures you can see a beautiful linen table cloth, various linen towels, a very pretty wooden cake stand, a copper sieve, copper measuring cups, a round wooden board, brass bowls and beautiful brass cups from the shop. And we can't even decide which our favorite piece is - all the products are just so beautiful!! Do you agree? We are so happy with all of them and could almost buy the whole shop :)
Another  new favorite are these delicious gluten free waffles. I think waffles in general detached my pancake addiction :D At the moment we could make waffles almost every day, as Nora just makes them so fluffy, that i can't get enough. This time we made a simple glutenfree batter and added grated apples and cinnamom. I really love that combination with coconut yoghurt and pears and the slightly strong coconut sugar syrup - it gives a very good contrast to the green pears, which are a bit sour. Our apple-waffles looked even more beautiful on the new wooden cake stand and were almost gone in a second, when we enjoyed this cozy afternoon with friends. Hope you guys will enjoy them too!

a gathering at signe bay's studio

Sonntag, 5. März 2017

We spent the last week in Copenhagen, one of our favorite cities, and it could'nt have been more wonderful! We also had to work some of the days, but most of the time was just about meeting friends and strolling through the city. The weather was not on our side though, but who cares in such a beautiful city!? We found the most perfect airbnb flat (which is not always easy when you travel with two dogs) with the nicest hosts and with a dreamy view directly towards to the canal. Sitting at the breakfast table, with a window facing the canal and having breakfast with this view each morning was all one could ask for! One of the highlights was also the lovely gathering at our dear friend Signe's beautiful studio with our dear friends Marieke and Linda. We've been also shooting Signe's studio for the new series "designtales" on the blog, but more on that soon. We had the most gorgeous light when we've been shooting this beautiful set-up and after we've been all making way to many photos, we enjoyed the delicious beetroot-sweet potato-soup, a glutenfree onion quiche and a radiccio salad with pears, walnuts and goat cheese, that Signe had prepared for us. So delicioius! 
At the moment we are staying in Arhus, where our dear friend Sif lives and were we all got together to celebrate some days of good food & talks, making some shootings and just enjoy the time together. Can't wait to share more pictures with you guys soon!
