Purple birthday cake!

My mom usually doesn't celebrate her birthday... But I always, always bake her a little something!

This time at the time of her birthday she wasn't in Athens, so we decided to visit and make a day of it!

I baked her a birthday cake, which was rather simple in taste.Vanilla cake layers with orange Swiss Meringue Buttercream.

For the decoration, though, I wanted something special and impressive!

I tinted the SMB purple with gel colour and I piped rosettes on the top half. I sprinkled some golden sugar and..... perfect!

My mom loved it! And the taste was light and refreshing! Great with a cup of hot coffee!

Travelling Tic Tac Toe!

My little one likes playing tic tac toe very much!

We play on paper, use an app...... You get the idea.

So, I decided to make a small tic tac toe game, using pebbles we had picked up from the beach!

I used a permanent marker and a small pouch. I tied it with satin ribbon.

Easy and cute, right?

She likes using it even at home!

Chocolate cheesecake!

A twist on my classic baked cheesecake!

I often make my favourite baked cheesecake. This time I made it chocolate!

Instead of digestive biscuits for the base, I used plain chocolate cookies.
For the filling, I simply added melted milk chocolate, about 200gr.
Everything else remained the same.

Easy and oh, so good!!!!

You know me, I have to have my chocolate!
