happy weekend

weekendlinks

And oh, how the weekend is already here. Does it seems like the days are flying past us or is it just me? The last time I thought about it, I was lazing about on my front porch enjoying my long summer holiday. And yet to think that in two weeks, we are halfway through the first school term. New York and London fashion week have flown by and Autumn is soon upon us (hooray! I’ve had enough of Perth’s stifling heat and humidity). But before the weekend is over, here are a few weekend links:

one | white on white, beautiful garlands that would be a delight in any room
two | chocolate peanut butter cheesecake, need I say more?
three | lovely geometric jewellery
four | a natural scrub with four simple ingredients
five | what beautiful floors!
six | a citrus wreath, such a different but clever gift

Happy weekend!

If I had to choose only one cake to eat

…the Black Forest, hands down, would be the winner.

Growing up with a mum as a pastry chef, I have been exposed to a wide variety of cakes from a young age. From the rich coffee liquor of the opera cake to contrast between bittersweet dark chocolate and tanginess of the apricot jam of the sachertorte, I have tried so many that brought my taste buds such delight. But for me, the black forest is the one that stands out from the crowd. With the tartness of the cherries cutting through the rich dark chocolate sponge, the perfect slice is delicately finished with freshly whipped cream. Goodness, just writing about this is bringing forth my sugar cravings!

For a fine recipe of this classic, click here for the original (with beautiful photographs) and here for the recipe in english.

Ice Cream

StrawberrySwirlButtermilk

“It’s never too cold for ice cream” said a clever young girl and I may have to agree with her. Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day in the U.S but that shouldn’t stop us in the small town of Perth from celebrating with them. So if you have an ice cream machine at home, I strongly urge you to try out one of these recipes in celebration of National Ice Cream Day.

Hope you are all well, especially those in Perth who are experiencing rather chilly weather.
