Army Cake (Loufa Kai Parallagi)

This cake was made today for George, a Greek-Cypriot guy who is going to join the army soon.


It took me more than 4 hours to make it, assemble the pieces and finally to decorate it. I reached a point I thought that I could never manage to finish it.

You can see the Cypriot and Greek Flags. Both mean so much to me!! And although I had a short warning this was the reason I decided to make this cake.

I hope you like it!

"Κοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου" (από την Ήβη Λιακοπούλου)

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
