And the next second the Sun was behind the horizon.

Balloon is filled with a bit of helium. Cat is confused. ๐Ÿ˜€ (On the balloon it says “Happy Birthday”)

IMG_0358It looked like a storm is coming but the clouds just passed through. (My favorite thing in this photo is the nest you can see in the branches of a tree. Spring is coming and the birds are coming back. Taken today.)

And finally, my photo of the eclipse taken on a home-made projector from paper. I eliminated light sources in the photo. This, ladies and gentleman is the Solar eclipse of 2015. ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you ever loved someone put your hands up…

After a lot of Prompts from Daily Post which left me going “Nope.” ( like the one, write your obituary. I mean… ๐Ÿ˜• ) finally a good one. Aaaand it was on my birthday. Double like.

First of all, my jukebox brain is already singing so…. You already know how this goes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Love is universal. Love is a savior.

I wish that everyone who does not know what love feels like experience complete and ultimate acceptance and encouragement to be who they are and to build their life around that answer. You who are reading this! Yes, I wish that for you. Love yourself. โค

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “I Want to Know What Loveย Is.”

Happy Birthday to Me…

Naaah, I’m just kidding! ๐Ÿ˜€ I am not sad, quite the opposite. Plus, you did not think I wouldn’t make a post about my B Day??

Hehe…

I am already enjoying in last few hours and feeling like a birthday girl thanks to my lovely family and boyfriend, I am chillin’ and feeling a bit excited I will admit! Have no idea why tho… Must be the chocolate rush. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So you can see what I am talking about;

For some reason listening to Iggy Azalea gets me pumped up right now, so I’ll see ya!ย Have tons of fun and rest this weekend, that is my birthday wish for you! โค

Cute in the cold.

It is rainy/cloudy outside and I am sick again! I have a cold and it sucks.

Bu. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Before I go straight to bed with my tea, I want to share something.

It is first, ok, second day of March, my favorite month. That may or may not be because my birthday is in 2 weeks. Hehe. ๐Ÿ™‚

So. TRYING to tone down the little irritated voice with cute photos.

Fiesta Monday? | Ferrero cake

Fiesta Monday? | Ferrero cake

I had to do this today too… Mostly because I said I would post it on Saturday, thought I would do it on Sunday and well…it’s already Monday. Monday, Bloody Monday.

As most of you already know, my birthday was two week’s ago (for those of you who don’t, check out the challenge we did on the right – in sidebar). And I wanted to celebrate it with a cake, since I haven’t made (had) a cake for my birthday… Well… …..since… I don’t know. Long time ago. So, I wanted a Ferrero cake, which is not a surprise if you have been reading stuff about me which I have to write when I get an award – talking about this. Yes. The very demanding and very delicious Ferrero cake it was.

I had to borrow two extra pair of hands (kisses!) or I wouldn’t have made it in such sort time before the get-together.

I will write down a recipe, as soon as I translate it on English.

After two or three hours (I lost track of time) it looked like this. If you’re wondering – it tasted heavenly. ๐Ÿ˜€ The biscuit was soft because of the warm milk I poured on it when it was baked and the filling was from mostly Nutella. And.. Nutella. That needs no explaining. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you’re thinking: “Hey Iva, why is the last one with candles on just one piece?” That is because when I remembered to take a picture of the cake with candles, that was actually all that was left of the cake. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Update! Recipe:

Ferrero Cake

img_1426

For the biscuit:

2 glasses of sugar (I used a glass that contains 2,5 dL)

1 glass of rough flour

1 glass of smooth flour

ยฝ of baking powder

1,5 spoon of baking soda (bicarbonate)

ยพ glass of cocoa (with no sugar)

1 vanilla sugar

2 eggs

1 glass of milk

ยฝ glass of hot water

 

For when the biscuit is baked:

ยฝ glass of boiled milk cooled down

mixed with 2 spoons of sweet cocoa

 

For the cream:

400 grams of Nutella

500 grams of mascarpone cheese (I used whey b/c itโ€™s cheaper)

200 grams of toasted hazelnuts

8 big cookies with hazelnut, we have Napolitanke and they look like this:

kras-napolitanke-nougat-420g

 

 

 

 

 

Process:

Mix the yolk from 2 eggs with sugar, pour the milk while mixing and then pour in the hot water. Mix the albumen separately until it is like whipped cream and add to the mixture slowly mixing with spoon, not with electric machine. Put in the oven, preheated to 180 Celsius and bake approximately 40 minutes. You can check with a toothpick when the biscuit is done, just put the toothpick in and if nothing stays on it โ€“ it is done.

Cool the biscuit down and cut it in half.

Now, the cream. First, take the skin of the hazelnuts by warming them in hot water (if desired) and fry them just a little in a pan. Mill the cookies and hazelnuts with a machine or a mixer. I left 50 grams of hazelnuts for the decoration on top. Mix all the ingredients together. Divideย in thirds โ€“ 1/3 for the first layer, 1/3 for the second and the rest for all around the cake.

Put the first half of biscuit in mold again so it would not soften and lose texture because now you will pour the milk with sweet cocoa over it, to make it juicy. I turned it upside down because it is more straight from the bottom. Pour just how much milk you think it needs, and donโ€™t forget that you need the same amount for the second half. Put the cream on the first half. Put the second half of biscuit on top and repeat pouring the cocoa and milk mixture on. Now put the second layer of cream on. You can remove the mold and start applying the rest of the cream all around the cake. I had some leftover, but it quickly vanished.ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have decorated the top with the ground hazelnuts I have left aside for that purpose and with few of Ferrero Rocherโ€™s bought in store.

Bon Appetit! Dobar tek!
