All the shops have decorated for christmas already a while ago [seriously – christmas decorations in September?] but finally I have decided it’s time too. Not to decorate, but the christmas feeling is starting to grow. As a little pre-christmas gift to myself I bought a new cake mold. The mold is out of enamel – a material almost forgotten in todays kitchens. Riess has a great new – very colorful edition! Make sure to check it out – and put it on your christmas wish list – it surely is on mine!

To get you in the right mood for this christmasy cake – have a look outside my window!
