A chocolatey Valentine’s day collab |Glücksgeist

Angela from LifeofAngela asked me on Instagram if I wanted to join her Valentine’s day baking and of course I had to say yes. Personally I don’t celebrate Valentine’s day, but who doesn’t love to eat some baked goods especially if it’s chocolate.

We both have Rosanna Pansino’s cookbook so we really wanted to use a recipe from it. Angela went for the chocolate cupcakes and I had to follow because chocolate is my favourite. I am really excited to see what Angela made out of this recipe.

I thought a little bit on how I should decorate my muffins, but my family and I actually aren’t the biggest fan of icing believe it or not. Mainly because my icing never turns out that good so I thought as I am baking for the day of love I actually treat my family, so I didn’t go for icing in the end. Instead I used these super cute muffin cases. My sister got them for me a few days ago, she’s just so cute.

The are in this lovely pink with hearts on them, so perfect for Valentine’s day. They also turn a boring brown muffin into a little piece of art, so I was really happy with them.

My family absolutely loved these and they were gone in a day. I think there’s no better present than something baked because it shows the effort you put into it.

Don’t forget to check out Angela’s cupcakes! Thank you so much Angela for doing this with me, I had so much fun!

Love, x

My favourite summer drink – chocolate milkshake

June 21, 2017

Today is officially the start of summer and it is so hot where I live. I am currently writing this post in front of a fan, so I don’t get too mad because of this weather. I love sunny weather so much, but hot sunny weather is a bit much for me. Because of this heat I thought it was about time to share my favourite summer drink with you. I love drinking this in summer because it’s so tasty and so refreshing. But, this really isn’t the most healthy drink so don’t drink too many of these 😉

Chocolate milkshake

You will need:

  • Chocolate ice cream
  • Milk (you can also use almond milk)

This is probably the most easy thing I shared on my blog. You basically take a few scoops of ice cream, add a bit of milk and blend it together in your mixer. Add as much milk as you want. The more milk you add the more liquid it gets. And finished is your tasty drink:

How cute is the little heart straw? My mum got me these from Italy. I love them so much and using them always feels so special.

Of course you can make this drink with different ice cream flavours and create strawberry, or vanilla smoothies. Personally I am just a massive chocolate lover so I had to share this with you.

Let me know your favourite summer drink and your favourite smoothie in the comments.

I hope you have amazing weather too.

Love, x

Happy Birthday Mama 🦋

Today is my mum’s birthday! I am so so lucky and have the best mum in the entire world! I love her so so much!!!

Of course she deserves to have the best day ever! With a few presents, an amazing cake and tons of hugs. 

Well…. I ordered the presents, for me quiet late, a week before her birthday on ASOS. Normally my order arrives 2 to 3 days after I ordered them, but there was a fire at the warehouse in Berlin…. 

Luckily nobody got hurt, that’s the most important thing. But because of that fire the shipping process was delayed and the presents didn’t arrive in time… 

I was quiet sad and disappointed about that. My mum already told me that it doesn’t matter, but I wanted to give her her presents on her birthday, but well.

So the presents hopefully arrive on Monday, just a day late.

For cake I wanted to create the most amazing cake for my mum.

Whilst baking I thought that cake is turning out so horrible. I am currently in a ‘I-can’t-bake’ phase, well at least my head thinks so. For that I think it turned out so good! I am really happy with it, I just hope it tastes good. But I know my mum is going to be so happy because she knows how much effort I put into it and that’s all that matters.

And there are still the hugs she gets from me. I think they are going to be good and not delayed ;).

I used the Sunday cake recipe from Love, Tanya.

For decoration I bought these cute pink, still so pink-obsessed, sprinkles and these pastel butterflies.

Let me know what you think of it in the comments! 

Have a wonderful day, xx

For all the Coffee addicted #PLLW

Today on my third post during my ‘Pretty little liars week’ I want to share something coffee related with you. These girls must have coffee in their blood because they drink so much, especially Spencer.

So I thought these tiramisu cupcakes would be perfect!
