Hi there!

“I really take the cake” is my baking blog. Most of the time I’ll show you what I bake. I love baking, but cooking, travelling and taking photos also means a lot to me – So you will find that in my blog, too. Since February 2011, this blog is a bilingual blog and you can read all the entrys in German, too.

I’m from Vienna, Austria – The little things that happen in my life is what I write about in this blog, too. If you’re interested, read it, if not, just take a look at the recipes. 😉

I’m always glad to get suggestions and comments – So if you want to tell me anything, just klick on the “Leave a Comment”-button you can find in every post.

You can also write me an e-mail: ireallytakethecake@hotmail.com
Have fun!

    Hi Stephanie!

    Die Rezepte sehen alle toll aus – ich bin gespannt, was noch so alles folgt. 🙂

    Habe gerade deinen Eintrag auf Joy The Baker gelesen und wollte dir sagen, dass das ganze mühsame Cupmaße umrechnen wegfällt, wenn du einfach zu IKEA gehst und dir dort die nötigen Küchenwerkzeuge holst. Sie haben auch die ganzen spoon-Maße. Es macht das Backen sooooo viel einfacher und schneller und kostet unter 10€.

    Liebe Grüße von einer weiteren Wienerin. 🙂

    Hallo Stephi,
    ich wollte mich mal bei dir persönlich für die Leckerein bedanken die deine Ma immer ins Büro mitnimmt! Und obwohl ich auch keine Muffinsliebhaberin bin muss ich dir sagen: I love your chocolate muffins!! Die zerschmelzen im Mund. Da ich auch ein großer Backfan bin liebe ich auch viele deiner Rezepte.
    Deine Seite ist großartig – mach so weiter und bleib wie du bist!
    Alles Liebe
    p.s. Ich hoffe du verzeihst dass ich Deutsch schreibe, but my english is unfortunately not so good

    Where can I find the recipe for those cinnamon star biscuits? I have been searching for years. My mother used to make them and has lost the recipe. They are not the thin crisp stars but the thicker cake like stars. Please help!!!!!!

    Hi Stephanie, I love how you have made this blog bilingual. That is something I would love to do but I’ve only been living in Linz for 5 years and I’m afriad it would be a right mess und viellicht lustig if translated some of my recipes auf Deutsch 😉
    liebe grüße aus Linz.
