Recipe: A Unique Birthday Cake

Let’s be creative ๐Ÿช„ and make someone feel special ๐ŸŒท

When I was a child, one of my best friend’s mum came from the UK, and as my friend and her family lived further away, I often got to sleep at her house when it was her birthday.

Which was fantastic, as this way I got to witness the untouched birthday cake with her in the mornings quite a few times – which would then be cut right away, so it wasn’t in its full beauty any more when the other guests arrived later that day.

And her mum made spectacular cakes that inspired me for the rest of my life.

In each country, we have different birthday traditions, and in Germany, when it’s your birthday, you wake up to a table full of presents and a home-made birthday cake.

Or at least that’s what I experienced.

But German birthday cakes, while made with love, and tasty, look kind of boring –ย  they might be covered with powdered sugar or melted chocolate – but they are more plain and everyone gets the same – my friend’s cakes, however, always had a theme.

The one I remember most vividly had a space theme, with someone travelling to the moon I think – and that was the most fascinating thing (or cake) I had ever seen.

In that moment, when I saw that cake, I decided that I wanted to make cakes like that for other people as well – and so I quickly became the baker in our family.

Sacher Torte became one of my specialities, but I also made all kinds of birthday cakes, first for my family and later for my friends as well.

Below you can see a few of the cakes I made – they are in no way professional – but they were fun to make and each of them was made representing something meaningful to the person it was for.

Because that’s what it’s all about, right?

Birthdays are our special days – and often they are the days the whole family comes together – so making a special birthday cake for someone, which represents them, as the special and unique and loved person they are, is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect and to let someone know that we see them, and care about them.

(Btw. we did not know that the dog licked the cake until we looked at the photos later – he must have been really quick and really happy that day ;))

So, I’m not actually sharing a specific recipe with you today – you can look those up according to your preference or the birthday person’s preference.

For some of the cakes, I used marzipan for the topping, for others I used frosting, you can also use ready-made fondant, and then there are also healthier options, so the possibilities are quite endless here.

I simply wanted to share this idea with you, as I think it’s a wonderful thing to do for our family members and friends, and then, let your creativity take you where you want to go.

And I do hope you will enjoy making special birthday cakes for special people from now on, or at least try it out – and if you do, I’d love to see your cakes!

Post them and tag me, or send a picture to me!

Letโ€™s pull some cards

To be honest, I was quite sceptical about Tarot and Oracle Cards โ€“ until I started pulling daily cards every morning and every evening and wrote them down for a while.

Purpose – Week 1 โ€“ Pt. 1

Purpose – Week 1 โ€“ Pt. 1

Welcome to a New Chapter in the CREATRIX School

Let’s begin to explore the purpose of life and our unique role in it.

In this lesson we will just start by looking at where we are at right now, find out what answers we are looking for and get a bit in the mood of this chapter so we can open up to exploring our mystical side, our purpose and our callings in the next four weeks.

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Letโ€™s find some clarity

We have a lot to explore this month, so we will use this lesson to find some clarity around the terms we will be using and start diving into the meaning and the purpose of our lives, as well as all the other terms.

And I share a bit about how I got here and how I discovered my callings and the purpose of life.

Purpose โ€“ Week 1 โ€“ Pt. 3

Purpose โ€“ Week 1 โ€“ Pt. 3

Why you are whole and perfect as you are

In the last lesson, we looked at the purpose of life and all the other terms we are going to fill with our own unique meaning in this chapter – and today, we will look at ourselves and how we can possibly give ourselves a new, more powerful meaning as well, by discovering that we are perfect already just as we are.

Do you agree? Do you think you’re perfect – yet?

Tools for Self-Recognition I: Astrology

In this lesson, we learn how to use our curiosity and our bliss, as well as our astrological birth chart to find out more about ourselves, our wishes, our personality traits, what drives and motivates us, what we like about ourselves, and what some of our challenges are – and then we see how we can begin to resolve them.

Purpose โ€“ Week 2 โ€“ Pt. 2

Tools for self-recognition II: Numerology

After finding out more about ourselves through Astrology, we focus once again on what else is possible for us, when we begin to look at what’s great about ourselves instead of what’s wrong with us ;).

It really makes such a huge difference.

And then we use numerology to recognize ourselves even more and to consider the possibility of inviting in a new (nick) name into our lives, to help strengthen the qualities we would like to cultivate more from now on.

Tools for self-recognition III: Wheel of Colours

Let’s dive a little deeper into getting to know ourselves.

This time we will use the Wheel of Colours to recognize more aspects of ourselves, and I’ll also show you how to use your Wheel of Colours to support you in the changes you’d like to create in your life.

Visualise yourself!

I bet that you already see yourself in many new ways and that you are getting more confident and proud of who you are already.

Today, we are going to add one more exercise to help us see our excellent qualities and superpowers and to find out how to best use them for the highest good of all.

When have you ever felt disempowered?

In this ritual, we do something profound.

We travel back in time to correct misunderstandings and misperceptions we’ve experienced in the past, and I’ll show you how to rewrite your history, so it cannot negatively impact your presence and future any more.

Practice: Foot Massages

Practice: Foot Massages

The topic of this chapter is RELAX/ Family, right?

And maybe the relaxation fell a little bit short โ€“ so let’s counteract that with some foot massages.

Today is the day we will start to treat ourselves extra nicely, maybe create a new family tradition, and learn how to best massage our own and each other’s feet.

Welcome to a New Chapter in the CREATRIX School

In this chapter of the CREATRIX School (or 4-week course) we will explore how we can transform our family relationships and create new possibilities for ourselves and future generations.

Today, we start by opening up to the topic and finding out about how we really feel about our families.

Family โ€“ Week 1 โ€“ Pt. 2

Family โ€“ Week 1 โ€“ Pt. 2

What makes a family?

In this lesson, we begin to think more about the possibilities we have when it comes to creating the families we would like to have.

And this is the aim of this course โ€“ to find confidence in creating the life you wish for, not the one that you feel is expected of you, or to feel like because you didnโ€™t have certain things growing up, that you canโ€™t have them now either.

We begin looking for what it will take for you to have everything you desire.
