Still thinking of our phantastic Ribnight.

Of course the Ribnight did not only contain ribs and sides. I provided the guests with some delicious desserts as well. Secret hero of the evening were those cute oversized-lollipops. They should not be missing on any buffet!

Tiramisu Cake: What do you do?

Sponge:

  1. Pour yolks and sugar into a large bowl and stir until fluffy
  2. Add vanilla and some amaretto and stir again
  3. Add flour and baking soda and stir very carefully until fluffy again
  4. Now beat the eggwhites and stir them into the dough
  5. Oil a medium sized springform pan and fill in the dough
  6. Bake for 20 minutes at 180° (356F)

Topping:

  1. Place the chilled sponge on a plate
  2. Add a cake ring to make sure everything sticks together
  3. Sprinkle coffee and some amaretto allover the sponge
  4. Pour mascarpone, cream and sugar into a bowl and stir, stir, stir!!
  5. Cover the coffee-amaretto-sponge with mascarpone-cream
  6. Cover the covered sponge ;-) with ladyfingers
  7. Sprinkle coffee and some amaretto allover the ladyfingers
  8. Now you need  to add more of the mascarpone cream
  9. Another layer of ladyfingers please!
  10. More coffee! More amaretto!
  11. Final layer of mascarpone cream! Because it is the last layer and therefore the topping of the cake I used a piping bag to make it look more beautiful
  12. Dust everything with cacao powder! More! More! More!
  13. You can add additional sweets like little meringues (as you see in the photo) or chocolate sticks. It should look rich and luxury!
  14. Remove  the cake ring (if the cream is not very heavy you can send the cake to rest in the fridge for an hour or two before you remove the cake ring) and cover the sides with ladyfingers
  15. Serve or send to fridge :-)

NOOOOOOOMMMMM!!!! By the way … I originally made to sponges so  the cake would have been a lot higher. I originally planed that the cake would have been as high as a ladyfinger is tall. Imagine what happened to the second sponge? When I called my best friend Maria <3 the dog noticed me being distracted and planned that soupercoup. He pulled the sponge from the island and devoured it. Little bitch of him! Of course he stole the PERFECT SPONGE and I had to go on with the not so perfect sponge ;)

I made some additional cake-variations. In here you can see a pumpkin-pie with pekan-pomegranate-topping. It is a low-carb variation. Noone ate it though it was very delicious. I guess the words “pumpkin” and “lowcarb” ensured that it could not stand the competition with the Tiramisu Cake. Do you want me to post the recipe?

The small balls are the leftovers of a turkish orange-yoguhrt-cake which had a terrible accident while decorating. So it … remains became insanely tasty cakepops.

Hot Chocolate

What do you need?

  • 1 bottle of milk
  • 1/4 chocolate bar
  • 1 cup of cream
  • additional sweets for decorating
  • some cacao

What do you do?

  1. Melt the chocolate in a water bath
  2. Boil the milk for a second and than keep it lukewarm
  3. Add the melted chocolate and than stir for at least five minutes
  4. Add some cacao powder and stir again
  5. Beat the cream until heavy
  6. Pour the hot chocolate into a cup
  7. Add the heavy cream
  8. Add sweets (marshmallows, chocolate sticks, meringue)

What do you not do?

  1. Don’t use the whole chocolate bar because you are insanely greedy after a long term of living healthy ;-)
  2. Don’t serve the whole-chocolate-bar-milk to a seven-year-old
  3. Especially not if it is less than one hour before bed-time
  4. Don’t watch the seven-year-old having enough energy to rib a lorry apart
  5. Don’t smile at the parents when they overthink killing you
  6. Don’t ask the seven-year-old to taste the white-chocolate-version as well

This has been your ribnight.

Hope you guys had some fun too.

Love,
V.
