5-minute Cake

Friday, February 10, 2012

Looking for an easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy weekend treat idea? Last night I made Fay's icebox cake. I've been crazy for mascarpone cheese lately so instead of using whipped cream, I mixed in a bit of espresso into the mascarpone. Also, I went with Fay's idea of using gingersnap cookies for the base instead of wafers and it was magic! (I got those from Ikea). Balazs and my friend Sofia loved it. Lovelies, I'm curious, what you've been craving lately? xo

P.S: Here is Martha Stewart's take on it!
P.P.S: Also, Crêpe cake.

Sugar! Have been on a cleanse. Actually I think I've been craving gooey cheese things more lately - yum!

My goodness it seems delish! I 've been craving salty foods lately and to my surprise apples, I usually don't eat many fruits.

Well now I'm craving that! I might try to make a tiramisu version with your mascarpone and espresso concoction...

I was craving sushi but I got that on Wednesday! MUAH!

This is dangerous. The only thing that keeps me from making cake is that it takes awhile. Now that it may only take five minutes, I'm doomed.

Diana Mieczan said...

Kelly, your comment made me giggle:)
