IN THE KITCHEN / ICING THE CAKE






I made a cake for my father's birthday (date- banana with apple yoghurt frosting) which we celebrated at our place. My sisters and their boyfriend also came over, it was very nice. The cake turned out real good but I only got a shot of the last piece afterwards.

(And yes, I know Sir Pekka is performing his evening 'grooming' procedure in the later pictures but hey, that's natural; what cats do, so no need to photoshop him out in the name of prudence or so :)

Delicious! How does one make an apple yoghurt frosting?

Penny : I just made it up as the cake is normally a "dry" one, I had to think of something to match it. I let some yoghurt run trough a filter for some hours, mixed it with a little butter and fresh mashed apples and icing sugar.

40s femme : yes it's hard to avoid around here :D

Prefecta : oh, what was it? Was it the Rock-suomi thing?

Olivia : But I would have to tell you first that the kitchen was a lot messier before I tidied it up for the party. You know, you'll have to know that side of me too first :D

Anonymous: yup, as you can read from the post I comment on his evening grooming in the background.
