Sunny's Another Strawberry Cake

Another Strawberry Cake
by Sunny

Hi to all! Happy New Year 2013!!
For all of you recovering from the holidays i am starting the new year with a lighter type of cake.

In order this cake to actually be light we are cutting down on some of the requirements to make it, please follow the recipe and you'll get amazing results as on the picture.


For the base
3 ready to go cake layers (the ones you can buy from the store/bakery)
4 cups of water
1 cup of sugar
40ml of any type of Liqour

For the glaze
200ml of bakery cream
200ml of regular cream
500gr of strawberries cut in half
8 spoons of sugar

Lets get this done..
Take the 4 cups of water and heat them up (not boiling!) and the sugar and the Liquor into it. Stear it up a few times. Let this cool off completely.
Take the 3 cake layers and sirup them with the sugary water you just made.

For the glaze you need to mix the bakery cream on high speed while slowly adding the regular cream and the 8 spoons of sugar. At the end you will have 1 thick creamy mixture, feel free to taste it with your finger to check if the sugar levels are good, if not you might add another spoon. Don't make it too sugary tho.

Put layer 1 then smear it with cream. Decorate strawberries all over it. Do the same with the second layer. At the end put the 3d and last layer ontop of the other 2 layers and smear the whole cake with cream. Decorate the top with the rest of the strawberries, you can also add other fruits if you have, like raspberries or banana.

Let the cake cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes before serving.

Enjoy your cake!

Sunny's Square Cake

Square Cake
by Sunny

Hello everybody, and merry x-mas!
I found some time today to post a new article on a new type of cake i came up with.

I am sorry it's not a christmas themed cake but well.. its still very yummy!

For this one you won't be needing any special products so just regular things you can buy in the grocery store.


For 1 layer of the base (keep in mind that you might want 2 layers, in that case double the quantity of the products below)
  • 2 eggs
  • Sunflower-Oil 2 spoons
  • Yoghurt 7 spoons
  • Sugar 7 spoons
  • Cacao Powder 1 spoon
  • 1 tea spoon of baking soda
For the glaze
  • 1 liter of milk
  • Flower 6 spoons
  • 300 grams of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tea spoon of vanilla powder
  • 5-6 walnuts

For the syrup (to give the layers some moisture)
  • 500ml of water
  • 500grams of sugar

Okay lets get started...
We start with the layer(s). Take a big bowl.. mix in there the eggs with the sugar first.
After that add the oil and the yoghurt and continue mixing. As last add the cacao and the baking soda and mix this on high speed until you get a smooth mixture. 
Poor this into a baking form (in my case a square) and bake it for around 30 minutes on 175 degrees celcius. Try poking it with a wooden stick to see if its ready.

For the glaze you need to boil the milk with the with 300 grams of sugar. When the milk starts boiling you add the vanilla powder and mix it a bit. Take if off the fire and add the eggs and the flower and mix this with a mixer until you get a creamy texture. If you like you can add food paint into the boiling milk to get another color of cream, i go with regular white.

For the syrup just boil the water with the sugar... let it boil on low fire so lot of the water damps away, after that let it cool off.

Now take the 1st layer and use the syrup to make it a bit wet (not too much) you just want a moist cake, we are not building a dam. Do the same with the second layer.
Smear the top of the first layer with 1/4 of the cream. Put the other layer on top and smear the whole cake with the rest of the cream.

Break the walnuts and decorate the cake with them.

Let the whole thing cool-off in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

Enjoy your tasty sqare cake!

Sunny's Strawberry Cake

Strawberry Cake 
by Sunny

Hello folks, how are you all doing? I got something yummy for you today.. strawberry cake, delicious cake just for yourself or for your family and friends too. It's a good cake with a tigght structure and you can really taste the strawberries with every bite.

Please follow the recipe carefully..


  • Cocos grates 50 grams
  • Strawberries 1 kg

For the base:

  • Butter 80 grams on roometemperature
  • Sugar 80 grams
  • 1 small package of vanilla powder
  • Salt (1 tea spoon)
  • 2 eggs
  • Flower 80 grams
  • Baking powder (1 tea spoon)
  • Milk (4 regular spoons)

For the glaze:

  • Sugar (3 regular spoons)
  • Water 500ml (warm)
  • Powder sugar 100 grams
  • Gelatin 1 small package
  • Strawberry juice (1 cup, can be from canned strawberries)

Oke here we go..
First prepare the baking cake-form by laying baking paper on it. Take a pan and heat the cocos up without any water or fat.. so it dries out good.

Starting with the base...
Take a bowl and add the 80grams of butter, 80grams of sugar, the vanilla powder and the salt. Mix this with the mixer until you get one smooth mixture.

Take a secondary bowl and mix there the eggs with the mixer.

Take a third bowl and add there the flower and the baking powder, mix them really good by hand. Add the cocos and mix it again by hand.

Now mix all the 3 bowls together in 1 bowl with the mixer on regular speed. Mix it for 3-4 minutes.

Now poor this mixture into the baking form and bake this in a pre-heated oven at 175 degrees celcius for 20 minutes.

Making the glaze...
Take all the strawberries and cut them into slices.
Take a bowl and put the strawberris in there, now add the 3 spoons of sugar.
Take strawberry juice and add the powder sugar in it, mix it with a spoon, add a bit of water into the mix if you feel like there is too much powder sugar compared to the juice.
Now put the gelatin in a cup with water, put this in the microwave for about 30sec and stear it up with a spoon. Let it rest for about 10minutes and mix it together with the strawberry juice.

This last mixture you should put in the fridge for 30 minutes, stear it up every 5 min while its in the fridge. You will see that its becoming to get jelly.

Finishing the cake...
Take the cake you baked and cover it all with strawberries, just like i did on the picture, there shouldn't be a open spot on the cake. Now carefully poor the gelatin mix all over the cake so it covers all strawberries, this will jelly them in place so your cake doesnt fall apart while serving etc.. also it looks much better this way.

If you have any cocos grates left you can sprinkle some cocos ontop of the cake again, if you don't have any it doesn't matter.

Put the cake in the fridge for another 1 hour. After that it's ready to serve!

Enjoy your Strawberry Cake.

Sunny's Easy Lemon Cheesecake

Easy Lemon Cheesecake
by Sunny

Hi friends! I am back again.. i had 3 very busy days at work and couldn't find enough time to write you another recipe, but dont worry here comes a new one.

If you like cheesecakes this one you are really going to love. It's a very light cheesecake and very fresh. It's really easy to make just stick by the recipe. 


  • Biscuites 300 grams (grated)
  • Butter 2 spoons (just melt a bit of butter in the microwave)
  • 2 Lemons
  • Bakery Cream 300ml (liquid)
  • Cream Cheese (plain) 300 grams
  • Powdered sugar 2 spoons
  • For decoration you can use other citrus fruits or just lemons again

Okay this is very simple, even a kid can do it if it knows how to read, lol.
Take the biscuites (already grated into nearly powder) and add the butter and mix that by hand or with a low speed mixer. Take (pref) a round cake form, not a big one and put this mixture as a bottom. Spread it equally and press it a bit so it sticks together.

Take the bakery cream and mix it with the cream cheese on high speed for atleast 2-3 minutes. Peel the lemons and use a grater to grate the peels into small pieces. Add those grates into the cream, add the sugar and mix this again. Now squeeze the lemon juice from the lemons you just had to peel and add the juice into the mixture. Continue mixing this for atleast another 2-3 minutes.

Now poor the cream mixture ontop of the bottom biscuit layer and let the cake cool in the fridge for about 4 hours. Decorate before serving.

Enjoy your Easy Lemon Cheesecake!

Sunny's Crown Cake

Crown Cake
by Sunny

Hi there, its me again. Blogging kind of late today, but thats because we were making this really big wedding cake at work today and it had to be finished, so unfortunatelly overtime for me, hehe.

The cake you see in the picture i call my Crown Cake, i really have no idea how i came up with this name as believe me this ain't one of the toughest cakes to make, far from it.



  • Biscuites 1 big package (plain ones, no flavor)
  • Butter 100 grams (roomtemperature)
  • 1 teacup of honey
  • 500 grams of Youghurt (get one as thick as possible)
  • Quark (curd) 300 grams
  • Oat Flakes 200 grams
  • 220 ml of hot water
  • 100 grams of raspberries
  • 50 grams of blueberries or blackberries
  • Cocos scrapes 4 spoons

The the hot water and put the cocos scrapes and the oat flakes in it. Let this sit until the oat flakes absorb all the water and become soft.

Take a bowl and mix the yoghurt, the quark and the honey with a mixer on normal speed.

Take the biscuites and brake them all to crumbs, mix them in another bowl with the butter. Now add the oat flakes into this bowl and mix them by hand further.

Take a small baking tin or a small cake form and spread it with the oat flakes mix, this will be your base/layer. Now smear upon this layer with 1/2 the yoghurt cream we just made.
Put some of the fruit ontop of that cream.
Repeat this process 2 times until you get 3 layers of oat flakes and 2 layers of cream.

Decorate the top of the cake with more fruit and sprinkle some cocos on it like i did on the picture. Put the cake in the fridge for 3 hours to harden.

This cake  suits best with a nice Cup of Cappucino or a Latte Machiato.

Enjoy your cake!
