Lilac sugar

I can't even begin to explain just how much I love these flowers. They make me all giddy! They smell incredible, and the fact that they are edible make them even better. Making lilac sugar is super simple - all you need is lilac petals, sugar and a jar. That's it! A perfect way to preserve the smell of summer for months to come. It's also a perfect gift!

Lilac sugar
Clean, dry lilac petals (preferably purple as they are very fragrant)
Granulated sugar
A jar

Layer flowers and sugar in a jar. Let stand dark and cool for a few days, shake every now and then. Now your sugar is ready to use. Perfect for baking or in a cup of tea.

Cakes in magazine

Two of my cakes are in the latest issue of Swedish magazine 'Amelia'. The magazine turned 18, and of course they wanted to celebrate with cake! I just wanted to share the photos with you since I am very happy with the result. I think they turned out very pretty, and not too complicated! The first cake is a vanilla sponge with vanilla syrup, mascarpone cream and fresh berries. This kind of cakes are probably my favorite as they are super easy to make but so pretty to look at. The second cake is a chocolate cake with milk chocolate frosting, raspberries, dark chocolate ganache and toasted meringue frosting on top. I could go for one of these right now.. wish they were still in my fridge!

Lomelinos glass (Lomelino's ice cream) - The film

I'm finally done with my little ice cream film. I'm very happy with the outcome, and I hope you'll enjoy it!
Turns out my book is now on sale, at least on Bokus. SOOOO excited! Feels like I've been waiting forever! I must say I'm so so happy with my new book. It's absolutely beautiful! Thank you to my publisher Bonnier Fakta and the ever so talented designer Katy Kimbell.
Anyway, have a look at the video now.
And as usual, the music is by my band Death in the afternoon.

And a few shots from the film..
