Sourdough bread made at home (natural yeast)

  Read to be baked! Making bread with natural yeast, also known as sourdough, is a rewarding and traditional process. Natural yeast is a mixture of flour and water that captures wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria from the environment. This yeast mixture also called a " starter " or " levain " is used as the leavening agent in sourdough bread. Here's a basic step-by-step guide on how to make bread with natural yeast at home: Ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose or whole wheat flour (for the starter) 1/2 cup lukewarm water (chlorine-free) A kitchen scale A clean glass or plastic container with a lid A kitchen thermometer Additional flour and water for the bread dough Salt (for flavor) Day 1: Creating the Starter In a clean glass or plastic container, mix 1/2 cup of lukewarm water (around 80-85°F or 27-29°C) with 1/2 cup of all-purpose or whole wheat flour. Mix until you have a thick, smooth paste. Cover th

Little Prince Christening Party Theme


After a long, wonderful and relaxing weekend at Protaras I am back with a new post.
Two weeks ago, little Andreas was christened.  The ceremony took place at Omodos, a beautiful village 30’ minutes away from Limassol.
The theme of the christening party was “Little Prince”.  There were about 200 guests invited to the party and I have to say that we all had a great time!!
I prepared a three tier christening cake, which was decorated with fondant.  It was a chocolate fudge cake, filled with chocolate cream and fresh organic strawberries. 
Vanilla flavoring, with fresh organic strawberries and chocolate fudge cupcakes were given to each guest as a treat.  All were decorated with fondant icing.
------------------------------------------
This cake was decorated twice. I did not like the way it looked the 1st time, so I decided to make a new one.  I liked this one.  I hope you like it too!

I started decorating the cupcakes at 8:00 o' clock in the morning, and finished at 9:15' at night.

The Christening Party Decoration!!
 Each guest was offered a cupcake.
 A traditional sweet made with almonds and sugar was given to each family as well.
Cupcakes, marshmallows, candies and lollipops were all over the place!  Kids were so excited!
