Last year I made an Easter Wreath for my German Language class. This year I thought I revisit that recipe and see how I can improve on it. Since then and now I have actually found fresh yeast and thought I would give it a try.

This year I had no time to make anything special for Valentine’s Day because I am teach that very day so no time for romance. However, last year I made a couple of things and I’d like to share them with you.
Mardi Gras or carnival is starting soon in Germany and one thing, above dressing up, is necessary to celebrate: bismarcks, or as we say in German “Berliner” or “Pfannenkuchen”. There are several terms for the same thing: a doughnut filled with jam.
Baumkuchen is a German specialty, which is especially popular during Christmas time. Let me quickly dissect the name for you so you know what it all means.
Teddy Bear Cake Pops
This is the last of the Christmas Cake pops I made this year. The little teddy bear, a classic for Christmas.
Snowman Cake Pops
After showing you have to make Christmas Tree and Present Cake pops, lets keep going and see what else we can do for Christmas themed cake pops.
Present Cake Pops
This is going to be a little series, since I made various cake pops for an order. All were Christmas themed and we started with the Christmas tree three days ago. Now we need to put something under it.
Christmas Tree Cake Pops
I am sure by now that cake pops a good for pretty much any occasion. So far I’ve made regular round ones but also character ones like Angry Birds or Lalaloopsy. Of course they are perfect for Christmas as well. How about some Christmas trees?
First of all: I am sorry. It’s been 8 days since my last post and I am truly sorry. It’s been so busy here lately that I had no time to either photograph or write. I am baking but I am also baking old recipes that I’ve already posted. For example, I made 15 dozen Raisin Cookies, which left me with 20 egg whites. Some of those were used in the Christmas Macarons, one or two were used for Spitzbuben cookies. But I still have some left and so I made this Christmas Meringue.
It is mid-November and that means Christmas is not too far away. Some Germany Christmas items one will find during December need to be prepared somewhat in advance because their ingredients need to sit to develop the right amount of flavour. One of these items would be the Christmas Stollen, a yeast cake with dried fruits and nuts. Great way to share with friends and family is a mini version.
