Why I don’t bake for Easter

Look at this wonders in the photos and tell me if I need to bake. My mother and mother in law made those for Easter and they were delicious. Even if I wanted to do it, they wouldn’t let me because it’s their pleasure and in the last 30-40 years, they manage to make them perfect.

My mom told me that there is no Easter without baking our traditional sweet bread , cheese and chocolate cake, even you can buy something similar at the shops. So my purpose was to take photos of those beautiful desserts and show everything to you (and eat everything with my family). My time will come and I will try to fill their shoes as good as I can.

  1. Vei reusi cu siguranta Gabi(atunci cand nu e o alta alternativa, adica mamicile pe langa tine…; si vrei totusi sa ai acel miros in casa…)! smile emoticon Nu va fi chiar ca si mamicile, dar ceva tot va iesi… smile emoticon Sigur!

  2. So beautiful, I wish I had a family member that loved to bake and could teach me. I follow recipes but then it is just so different from recipes with history that are passed down from one generation to the next. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Enjoy them with your family … and make sure to watch how the treats are made and record the recipes for your children and grandchildren. One day, you’ll be glad you did. I was never interested in hanging out in the kitchen while my mom made many of my favourite dishes and now that she’s passed away, I regret it every time the holidays come around.

      1. My mother’s English wasn’t very good nor did she measure ANYTHING. So, no, nothing was ever written down. I tried once with a couple of recipes but it was quite a chore and I finally gave up. I wonder what ever happened to that green spiral bound notebook. 🙂

  4. Looks delicious and I love the traditions behind it! Lovely – sounds like my family!
    Dropping by to leave you my Friday dosage of love ❤
    Have an awesome weekend! xx

  5. It’s precisely what keeps happening to me. Got so many talented bakers around me that I don’t dare to try it myself anymore. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad!

  6. Those cakes looks really tasty. I am interested in the structure of cup to bake the inside of cake well. Similarly, a cook makes a hollow in hamburger steak for the same reason. I like the blue flowers those make good accent in your pictures. Will you make the cakes with your daughter?

  7. Beautiful desserts – how I hope that you are being taught how to make them!! And I love those little baking moulds, are they heirlooms and if not where can you buy them?

  8. Are those made with poppy seeds? They look absolutely mouth-watering. You’d better get practising now – in my experience those things are simple on paper but don’t always work out the way we want in real. My mother died last year, so my time for asking questions is over. Make the most of shared time handing down family traditions while you can.

  9. I’ll bet they taste as good as they look. I’m certain when your time comes, you will handle the family tradition with style and grace. For now, just enjoy the experience sharing with your family.
