Eats....

Yesterday was the last day of my German class that I was taking at OSU continuing education, so I made dessert. I chose to make individual Dobos Torte. Although this is technically not a German dessert it is know through out Germany and Austria. It was created by a man named József C. Dobos from Hungary in 1884. I am very pleased with hot they turned out. Although I did over bake one tray so I made cupcakes so Jason could also have a treat. Since I had to use up the buttercream!


These cupcakes are called, 'Better than Sex' Chocolate cupcakes. Although they are quite tasty..... I decided to do some artsy photos getting my inspiration from HERE and HERE. Jason seemed to like them so that is all that matters.

Here is more Ciabatta. It makes the best French Toast. As usual I am using the best bread book...Baking Artisan Bread by Ciril Hitz. I am super happy with how they came out although I think I will be investing in a bakers peel as soon as I can.

Off to do some knitting and sewing...

DOBOS TORTE!!! This is the staple of all Hungarian celebrations (pretty much anything of significance that happens in Aron's family). Was it really hard to make? 12 layers is a lot, but also makes it super tasty.
Guess what? I finished the 4th panel of my blanket! One more to go!
Miss you!!!!!
