Snow outside
Snow inside
Brought the inside snow outside for this shot
Sssh, don't tell Mark
I baked this cake for everyone in the office
had to put it in the snow for a sec
Haven't heard anything yet though

I cannot without my Nordic Ware
the platinum collection cast aluminum Bundt bakeware
Anyone can bake a perfectly pretty cake using this amazing tool

Off now for another snowy coffee
Keep warm my friends !

  4. Cold snow, warm fresh baked cake and tasty coffee...now that is a great way to enjoy the day. Holly Jolly to you...

  5. We do not get snow here in Phoenix but they do in northern Arizona where my mother lives. That cake looks divine and I'm certain after eating it nobody would care that it had a field trip out in the snow.

  6. We haven't had snow here yet. But if we did, I know I'd be wishing that I could be home baking cookies and enjoying a fire crackling in the fireplace! Mmmm...sounds delightful! Think warm thoughts, sweet one! Your cake and coffee look FAB!

  7. Oh my, that cake sure looks yummy, can I dig in yet?

  8. Have a great day! Yummy coffee and cake on a snowy day sounds cozy!

  9. Oh dear Friend Saskia, I read the whole post as if you were whispering it!!!rsrsrs...lovely words, dear, lovely thought!!! Be sure I won't tell prince M.!!! I can imagine the delicious cake you have made!!! Four little bunnies will be on cloud nine today!!!!rsrsrs...

    I have just had my vanilla tea and it is almost 11pm. Must go to bed. Prince E. is working at the home office...:o((
    See you tomorrow, dearest Friend!! Much love!!! Be warm! rest! Bela.

  10. I love the Nordic ware too and they are making so many fun designs now too! Very funny about putting it on the snow! ;D

  11. SASKIA!!! MY DEAR FRIEND! Oh dearest, what a great picture! AND YES, WE ARE BURIED IN SNOW but the WIND is making the temperature dip; we are not quite below zero yet, but that is reserved for January! I remember being on bus duty after school last year in BELOW 30 degrees farenheit!!!!! But, everything is so beautiful and do you know that the builders are still coming tomorrow to work? BRAVE MEN!!!!

    Bundle up dearest; I hear you all got some snow, but isn't this fun and cozy???

  15. I have several pieces of Nordic Ware, too. Great stuff!

  16. Dear Saskia, the snow looks delightful to me as we don't have snow here but it is raining and my little one is not feel very well but we are snug inside and enjoying a break from the hot weather. I can almost smell that delicious cake..mmmmmm

  22. Look like a yummy-yummy cake. I won't tell your co-workers that it was outside in the snow for a photo shot!!! hehehe.

  23. You are way to cute....and really that cake looks amazing my friend!!! I so want to come and bake with you...what fun we would have...I can sooooo use your help here...I just found out that my next article is due Dec.15th!!!! I will be working hard in the kitchen for a few days...please come help...I could use some of your sweetpeas in my photos...xoxoxo hugs.

  24. Dearest Saskia,

    Great idea to use the natural sugar shaker to dust your cake! And the bonus is: 0 calories...
    You got real winter and here we had almost summer weather 23°C and we got lucky for not having any thunderstorms. Unreal feeling for this time of the year!

    Enjoy your snow and the rest of the week!
