my entry was a cake recipe i made up myself - so lets call it an " cake experiment". I enjoy to cook that way but of course you need to take in account that you might end up with a failure.
So my idea was to make a "tahini, honey and thyme cake".
butter cookie ground
made out of different kinds of cookies and butter
mixed with rosted seeds and crushed pistachio
topped with a tahini cream
a mixture of light tahini, cream cheese, honey and fresh thyme leaves
and a finishing of japanese black sesame seeds ( forgot to take a picture of that step!)
so now what i did not wrote yet is following:
i overslept that day so i had to rush out and be very very fast with everything
and in my fastness i bought salty turkish cookies for step 1.!
so it became a really salty cake... well my cake was described as a first sweet honey thyme taste followed by a nut taste and then a very very salty ending.
it was too funny!
but listen if you start something you have to go the whole way.. so i decided to still take part on the competition.
i was entry no. 31.
there been lots of cakes at the competition in all kind of colours and shapes - some very extravagance looking once , some fruity and some with lots of colourful sugar icing.
me and my friend been on the floor laughing ( well i was a mixture between laughing and super red from shyness) when the first jury members tasted my cake.
the first jury members been leila from leilas cafe and a girl called kitty who runs an ice cream cafe.
it was really the funniest thing to watch. leila took two spoons - i guess because she could not place the taste at first or maybe could not believe what she tasted...
a salty cake!
well okay i did not won but i was shocked that a carrot cake and a pear cake won this years competition.
sunday was so funny too as i took part of a dance classes which was listed as:
This class is for the serious dancer/student who likes to work, and play, hard.
when all flew elegant like butterflies trough the room - i followed (as the last one)
"stone who tried to fly"
it was really funny too!
what a weekend.!!
(but i felt like a winner anyways)
