Easter Lamb.

Happy Easter everyone! If you are still looking for something great to bake, I’ve got something for you: Have a look at my Easter Lamb.

It’s a black lamb with great poppy seed filling. You could also use white filling. Or no filling. It looks great any way. And it’s so easy to make! (Deutsche Version.)

Happy Easter!

This is what I made today. It will sit in all the Easter baskets of the family.

You don’t recognise what that is? Let me help you out.

Bunny Buns! As you can see, I had a problem with the sugar icing (it’s not chocolate) – gravity was against me. But we packed them in plastic wrap anyway.

I followed this instruction: Click me! If you don’t speak German, never mind, it’s only about the photos anyway.

Bunny buns ready to go with us to the family visits!

I’m really looking forward to Easter and hope for good weather. Enjoy your Easter, too!

Sunshine!

The sun’s finally shining! It’s warm outside. Of course, this weather has to be enjoyed. Where can you enjoy it better than in the Viennese MuseumsQuartier? Of course, I took my camera with me. (You’ll find my favourite photo in the end!)

I love it here. I met up with a friend to talk about a presentation we have to do.
Later, we sat in the park with some friends of his. Sunlight! (And: I sat in the park with people I didn’t know – well, except one. That was a lot for me, haha.)

I love university and it’s even better when it’s warm. You can sit in the park before the building when you have an hour break and you don’t freeze – no, you get a tan! You get to know even more people because everybody can invite their friends to come sit without having to ask the host of the party.

Right now, there are sculptures of intestines at the MQ. (They actually are a bar.)

I love the colours!

What I also love about university is that you don’t get pigeonholed. At school, after a year (at the most), you are the one you will be until the end of school. You can’t change it, you will never be seen different. I wasn’t really dissatisfied with my image at school – I also didn’t really care. But at university, no one knows how your grades were. When you get an A, everyone’s happy for you, there are no “geeky” ones who get laughed at because they have good grades. Nobody knows who you were at school, whether you belonged to the “cool kids” or not. I love that. I love that I started studying alone without any friends of mine doing the same thing. I needed to find new people to talk to – I didn’t have any other possibility. And I like all the people I found so much. I also love my friends I know from school, but it’s different. The people I met since last year know me the way I am right now. And I like being different from myself at school.

I also love to be a lot more independent. I always made my own food and that but now I’m even more often away from home. It’s different.
Last week, I made Spinach Feta Toast.

Yummy!

And here comes my favourite photo of the day. I love it. Even though it’s a bit blurry.

Enjoy the sunlight!

A swirl of cinnamon

Come sit with me. There’s “10 Things I Hate About You” on TV. Let’s drink a cup of coffee. Have a Cinnamon Swirl with it.

Awesome swirl. Tasty. Moist in the middle. Cinnamon! Oh how do I love cinnamon. And I love this film. How cute is the scene in which Heath Ledger is singing! (Oh, I miss him.) And Joseph Gordon-Levitt! He’s awesome, too. I’m glad that he also could make other really good movies after this one. Often, the actors starring in such popular romantic comedies never get a good film again, even though they’re really good.

Since not everybody loves cinnamon (and Heath Ledger) as much as I – let’s say my Dad and my brother – I also made our family Sweet Buns.

And then we had two little baskets full of sweet and tasty treats. They’re almost gone already!

And since it’s Easter time, have a look at another one of our little decoration bunnies.

Sweet cinnamon swirls and cute Easter bunny look like a perfect team. With a cup of coffee, they’re a perfect threesome! And now add “10 Things I Hate About You” aka the film to which I always have to squeal “Aaaaaawww!”. Most perfect foursome!

When I saw those cute cute cute chocolate figures in a store last week, I squealed a bit, too. (In my mind.) They’re awesome! They come from Frey and there were chocolate figures like:

Captain John Rabbit!

A Chocolate Duck!

Aaaaand, cutest of them all: Calimero!!!

Sorry for the a bit blurry photos – phone cam.
Now I got to go, Heath Ledger just gave Julia Stiles a Fender and… kind of bought her back. (That’s kind of strange, I think. Well, but he loves her.) End Kiss!
(By the way, I also watch really good films. Rear Window is in my DVD player right now! But I just love love love 10 Things I Hate About You once in a while.)

Muffin Reconsideration.

Did I tell you I’m not a muffin lover? As of today, I am. Give me a glass of skimmed milk and one of these Chocolate Muffins and I’m happy.

I fell in love with those. I know, I made chocolate muffins two weeks ago, but I wanted to try another recipe. And they turned out perfect. These are my kind of muffin. They taste like those Coffeeshop Muffins I always wanted to reproduce.

Let’s just call it Vancouver Mountains.

I had a little problem with this cake yesterday. It just didn’t want to come out of the cake tin – although I had it floured really thoroughly! In the end, I got it out. But it was a bit … uhm..uneven. So I decided I’ll call this really tasty Orange Marble Bundt Cake just Vancouver Mountains.

Okay, you don’t really see that in this picture. But whatever, the mountains were really good – uneven or even. And I think it’s a nice name since the Olympic Winter Games are over tomorrow.

Mum and I decorated for the Easter holidays today!
I think we may have the largest collection of Easter bunnies.

Oh no, these are not all of them by far!

These are my favourite pieces of decoration:

The pastel-coloured chicken and cock.

I love how they look at you when you come round the corner in the flat.

The straw bunny.

It’s big. And cute.

And now my favourite piece of them all: The Little Stork.

It’s a piece of decoration for our Easter pussy willow.

Tomorrow, it’s the last day of holidays and university starts again. I’ve decided to learn Italian now! Yay, I’m really looking forward to it. Italian sounds awesome.
