smargastarta1

My birthday ended up on a very rainy, grey and stormy day this year and was mostly spent indoors, with lots of flowers and faraway greetings.

Johan had made me this wonderfully delicious, savoury smörgåstårta filled with veg pate (tartex), scheese, smoked tofu, vegan mayo+cream cheese (tofutti) and caviart.

It was J’s birthday yesterday and I made this black and white cake with a bright pink and black inside and this little fella as a cake topper (excuse the blurry photos):

The cake is raspberry liquorice flavoured, which I thought was a nice combination for the event. I used fresh raspberries mixed with sugar for the filling and black dyed vegan buttercream frosting flavoured with ground anise seeds for the topping + some rice whipping cream for good measure. It would have looked a lot better if I had used white buttercream instead of whipping cream I think, but you know how it is; it’s always easy to be clever afterwards! Tonight I’m going to the cinema to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Have a lovely weekend!
