Swiss meringue buttercream

This is a medium-advanced cake cream, that requires some more work than buttercream, but also makes for a more fluffy, creamy icing. It's still not the hardest one, and definitely worth the effort! You will love the silky texture and firm, almost buttery-like consistency. It's a clear winner for cakes and decorative, ornamental (ruffles, anyone?) cupcake decorations.

PS: The picture shows decorated cupcake with the swiss meringue buttercream, look how amazing the ruffle looks, and the silky smooth surface is! :-)

Colorful chicken with purple potatoes

This recipe is not for the faint-hearted — it requires some frying skills, but makes a really tasty, delicious meal with a massive wow-factor without any extra hassle :-) I actually got the idea for this, when my local grocery store offered special 1kg packages of Vitelotte, a.k.a. purple potatoes. I wanted to make something tasty, but also colourful and festive, thus this crazy, colourful and festive meal was born! ---|

On good thing about these potatoes is, they seem to lower blood pressure and have inflammatory components, which might be a good thing for a winter meal :-)

Tuna and egg bento

The bare tuna-paste bento was a great success, but with the arrival of my new bento container, I was left with some extra unused space. I decided to fill the space with easy to make and very tasty iri tamago, which is basically a Japanese kind of scrambled eggs! You can definitely use iri tamago in onigiri, or as a small side dish.
