Hi everyone,

Since I don't have to much time, with the holiday orders starting to flow in, I even have an order from Rosh Pina can you believe it. I am so honored that even in the most northern part of Israel they like my cupcakes!! I don't post as much as I like.

But I'll try to write an interesting post with a very nice cupcake recipe for the holiday's

honey cake cupcakes
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
Honey vanilla butter cream frosting

200 gram butter room temp. Honey according how strong you like the taste to be, 1 tsp vanilla essence
175 gram confectioners sugar

10 ml milk at room temp.


To make the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake papers.

In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in honey, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix into the batter until just blended. Scoop the batter into the cups evenly.

Cupcakes are ready when the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes.

To make the buttercream frosting

1. In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter until fluffy and white for about 3 min.
2. add confectioners sugar (spoon by spoon and scrape the sides of the mixer bowl often), milk, honey and vanilla essence and mix for about 5-7 minutes at medium speed.
3. When the cupcakes are totally cooled down you can start decorating your cupcakes with the butter cream.

You can top the honey cake cupcakes with some toasted walnuts.

And here you can find some very nice different ways to decorate your cupcakes, I have posted this link before but I find it so nice, so I am posting it again.

Here is something nice!

I love silhouettes, you can make such beautiful creations with silhouettes, and it's like very trendy again.

Now one of the blogs I love and follow, the crafting chicks, had a post on how to make those silhouettes. So here's the link an enjoy!!!

(also a wonderful blog on silhouettes -

And for dessert

some sweet and inspirational dessert tables

For some last words I would like to tell you that if you have any questions or suggestions you can always contact me, in Hebrew, no problem!

What did I write in my last post, that I took some time off to be with the kids...... Uh oh I am such a bad mommy!

I am so addicted to my work that if people call to order, I am so happy and no way in the world would I turn down an opportunity to create, and design cupcakes and cookies.

So I am working like crazy now to finish the orders in time, mostly of course I work in the middle of the night, because one, than it is the coolest and the cookies don't lose their form, and secondly that's the time it's quiet, my quality time with my work, no screaming and fighting kids. No angry kids who are asking me all the time mommy when are you finished already, mommy when are we going to the pool etc. They are wonderful amazing sweet kids no complaints what so ever, but for those of you who are mommies you know whet I mean, they just need attention( always).

Anyway, Today I wanted to write about some body else. Though I just met her for the first time last week, she made such an impression on us her name is Yael Yaniv, and she make the most amazing ceramic creations, everything is beautiful. But her cupcakes stole my hart!!

I am so glad I have 6 of them, everytime I look at them it makes me so happy. I already prepared her I'am still going to order lots and lots of her cupcakes.

Can you tell real from Ceramic?

Sorry for the quality, a professional camera is on my wish list!!

I took some holiday from work, to be with the kids the last weeks of the holiday. So I won't be posting al lot of cupcakes & cookies stuff.

But I promise in the new year , you'll get more than enough cupcakes & cookies fixes!!

In the mean time I don't know with whom to start first today, I have 2 very nice, very talented Ladies I would like to write about.

אן דן דינו.......... I' ll start with my dear friend Ofra De Langen - Danino. Ofra and I have met last year on the plane to Holland, Her husband is Dutch,and as you all know I am also Dutch. We got along straight away. After the flight we didn't keep in touch until a few months ago.

I was looking for a manicurist who works with Bio sculpture gel. I wanted to have some extra protection for my nails, but wasn't interested at all in Acrylic nails. I looked someone up in my area, and found Ofra again. Since then we became friends, I have nice healthy nails and a face wich is TEN YEARS younger, and I don't exaggerate.

Ok what the heck has my face to do with my nails???

Apart from nails Ofra's is a natural cosmetician. She's developed an amazing line of all natural face and body care.

I can't tell enough how amazing her products are, I have used Chanel, Dior, biotherm you name it, and nothing even comes close to her products.

Ofra has international allure with her products, it's a חובה for every woman to check out her website

I always like to finish a post with some pictures who make me feel happy, in the hope it gives you the same feeling!

Good evening everyone,

It's so nice to be back with the blog, I was all day thinking what I will post today.
Today it's not about cupcakes , yes it's not always about cupcakes, it's also about life style and nice/beautiful/make happy things.

So today I will write something about my shopping bag. Some of you will ask there self did this sister loose her mind, and others will say YES!

The girls who will say YES know I'm going to write about my "PIP STUDIO" bag (haha).

I mean this one

So many people at the fair asked me about my bag, where did I buy such a nice bag, did I buy it here in Israel????

Some of them knew straight away that this is pip studio

Now to those I promised some info, here it is

PIP Studio is a dutch designer, her parents are Oilily, who sadly went bankrupt.

Any way I'll post some pictures and her website so all you guys can go and order her beautiful stuff.

Here is her website, sit back and enjoy, try not to drool over your keyboard.

לילה טוב

Hi girls (and maybe guys),

my last post was more than half a year ago.
Well my problem was that I have to write in English, my hebrew is to slow and probably full oשגיות כתיב. Any way someone who doesn't know me and reads my blog must probably think I am some kind of קוקו.

But then I attended an AMAZING fair at netanella's house in Rehovot ( which was organized by Netanella and Keren Shavit( with amazing people and amazing products. Really I am not exaggerating.
And so may nice people remembered my blog and told that it's no a problem at all, me writing in English.

So I am really exited to restart my blog.

It probably won't be to busy in the beginning, you know summer holiday, 3 kids at home.

But I'll try anyway to post some happy things.

I'll post some of the wonderful pictures נעמי יוגב the photographer made of my cupcakes and cookies at the fair (

Have a nice week and good to be back!
