  1. Belated happy anniversary! Wow, one year already!

    The cake looks amazing. White I was reading it, I was already trying to figure out if I had the ingredients to make an Elisa-friendly version ;-) And of course it looks super-pretty, too, because you are such an artist!

    Hugs!

    1. Hey Feliz,
      Ich denk schon, dass du das Aroma weglassen oder austauschen kannst. Ist ja eine Art Basis Kuchen und könnt mir vorstellen, jede Familie hat da n Geheimrezept. Hatte auch schon überlegt mal ne Variante mit Orangengeschmack zu machen.
      Liebe Grüße, Tobia

  2. Hello,

    Just wondering did anyone manage to successfully make this gluten free? Grateful for any feedback

    Thanks in advance

    Deborah
