I have shared this delicious carrot cake recipe on the blog earlier. You can find it here. We actually made ours already before Easter as we needed a little pick me up cake on a Monday. It is such a great cake. Fairly easy to make and seriously delicious. This time I added more powdered sugar for the frosting as I wanted it to be stiffer so I could pipe it ( on the original recipe it sort of slides around the sides which is also a beautiful looks ( I think). The Beatrix Potter cake decorations and paper plates are so incredible cute. They are by MeriMeri and I bought mine from Popup kemut. They till have some plates left I saw. The cutest thing, not just for Easter but for all year around. I especially love things like these cake decorations as you can use them again and again. We don´t use paper plates around the house so much, but these will be so cute for summer picnics! Think little finger sandwiches, cut vegetables, individual mini pies and berries. I can´t wait!

To follow is many pictures of the cake so I hope you are ready to bake because it will get you in to the mood for it!

I like to use Pinterest for ideas and mood boards even for little events. Just to get the thought I have in my head as visual a possible. I will share pictures of the actual setup on my Instagram so join me there!

Have a great weekend!

Boxing Day Brunch

by Sofia   -   in Cooking  Party planning

For a few years now we have been hosting a Boxing Day brunch in our house for our family and a few close friends. We have a traditional Christmas dinner at my parents house on Christmas eve so this is a different kind of meal. I love brunch and breakfast foods but as we usually spend a whole day together it´s nice to add something a bit more substantial and lunch like in the mix. I think we will do a roast beef this year. There will also definitely be smoked and cold cured salmon with mini blinis or lovely toast and fish roe for sure. Definitely eggs in some way. Perhaps as a scramble served from the shell topped with some roe or a sprinkling of truffle salt.Or maybe I will do quail eggs as they are so pretty. I think we need to do some roasted potatoes for the roast beef? With a lovely cranberry jelly perhaps. Obviously a salad with some candied nuts on top. And cheese. Some pretty desserts too. I think cookies, perhaps something with almond and a sprinkling of powdered sugar, some mini pavlovas are always gorgeous, decorated with pretty jewel like berries and some orange rind. The girls will decorate gingerbread cookies for us that are always a cute addition. And then a panettone on a pedestal.

My new table cloth fabric arrived yesterday. I will have it sown for a long festive table cloth that I can use all year around. It´s a beautiful classic blue toile de jouy on a creamy white base. Such has been on my wish list for years and now we decided that our pretty new dining room deserves a lovely festive table cloth. One that lands all the way down and is probably impossible to iron but looks elegant. I think it will look lovely with any colour scheme from pink peonies in the summer to red velvet bows during Christmas. With yellow, pistachio and baby pink for Easter or with orange & teal for Fall. I have a very good feeling about it!

I hope to add some of our silver pieces on the table this year. An antique silver toast stand, our silver coffee and tea set etc. They should look lovely with some white pieces and I think I will add some pears, lemons & mandarins with leaves attached as edible decorations. I have seen both in the stores lately, also lemons with leaves. So pretty! I will make a tower of two or three of my white cake stands to display them at the centre of the table. Or perhaps I´ll make a centrepiece on a silver tray. I´m still contemplating if we even need flowers. Perhaps not. I´ll most likely have them around the house everywhere else.
