The Book Launch

Yesterday was the book launch for Griselda's latest book, Oog van de Naald. My cheesecakes were a hit and I was getting complements left, right and center (just what a girl wants to hear).

The book launch was at a tattoo shop, which was very fitting as the book is a crime thriller which follows a reporter investigating a serial killer who tattoos his victims. If you can read Dutch you should check it out.

After the official business, we had a guerilla style BBQ in a park in Amsterdam - a lovely way to spend your Tuesday night.

In order to celebrate my first successful cake order, I used some of my earnings and spoilt myself with some new shoes!

Baking Weekend

It's been a baking weekend! A friend of ours, Griselda, asked me to make her 10 cheesecakes for her book launch and since I have an oven that only fits one cake in at a time, I spent the weekend baking away.

To celebrate my first "order" my boyfriend surprised me with these cool calling cards and stickers - isn't he the sweetest

...and the best part of baking, getting to lick the bowl of course!

Birthday Cupcakes

Here are some snaps of cupcakes I made for my birthday last year, red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing....mmmm mmm they were delish! In Holland when its your birthday you have to "trakteer" which means you bring cake to your work or school for your birthday, rather than them arranging it for you.
