Happy fall you all. The leaves are falling and it is getting colder outside. The festive season is just around the corner and we are getting cozy with hot chocolate and a piece of cake. It is the pumpkin season and therefore we made a fresh pumpkin pie. This is absolutely the best and most delicious pumpkin cake we have ever eaten. Pumpkins symbolize the harvest time and during this time of the year you can see pumpkin spice everything all around you from lattes, chocolates, donuts and so on. Did you know that pumpkin pies are the single most requested dessert at Thanksgiving in the USA? A good reason to give it a try and make this delicious pie from scratch. Here is how:
The Black Forest cake is a German classic. Typically, the cake consists of several layers of chocolate sponge cake that is filled with cherries and whipped cream. The decoration consists of additional whipped cream, maraschino cherries and chocolate shavings. Traditionally, the cherries are soaked in cherry brandy, Kirschwasser, which is a clear spirit made from sour cherries. This is also the ingredient that gives the dessert its distinctive flavor. These lovely little cakes are the perfect dessert. Your guests are sure to enjoy this delicious cherry and chocolate combination.
The piñata cake is named after the Mexican party center pieces made from paper with a hollow center which is used to hold candies and other sweet treats. The idea behind the pinata cake is to make the cake-cutting process a bit more exciting and unique. It adds an element of surprise and will keep people guessing as to what really is packed inside it. This lemon sponge cake is a favorite for any kids birthday party.
If you love caramel, you will love this. This is truly the best caramel recipe we have tried and believe us we tried many. Making homemade caramel can seem intimidating. Boiling hot sugar, the fear of scorching or burning it is scary. We scrubbed our pots several times after failed attempts. However, the sheer satisfaction when you finally get it right is so rewarding. Therefore, we encourage you to try it for yourself. This silky smooth homemade caramel is beyond easy to make and perfectly paired with dark chocolate or sea salt.
Baileys is probably the best invention besides chocolate. We love it and like to use it in our coffee, hot chocolate or dessert. With the Easter holidays just a few days away, here is our tip to make your own chocolate gifts. These Bailey's Irish Cream chocolate truffles are deliciously rich and totally irresistible.
Kinder chocolate is a universal favorite and it also has a special place in our home. Even as adults we like to indulge in it frequently and when kids birthday parties are celebrated then Kinder chocolate makes a frequent appearance on cakes or desserts. We are extremely happy that we have found this Easter bunny recipe at our grocery store.

Christmas is the season for baking a variety of cookies that are cut into various shapes related to Christmas.
