New season. Same rules as last couple of billion years. If Milan play at home the colors of inspiration is black and red. If they play away its their adversary that deciedes colour, for instance Napoli at Neapel means a heavensblue inspired goodie. Also latest game ontop so the comments might be a little weird.
Milan – Empoli 3-0. My team is in a great mood keep winning and Im just in a procrastination-mood not able making anything on time. Except this faaaaab apple cake. Blue caramellized apples and under all that nice soft vanillamascarpone is faaaaat layers of cinnamon and butterfried apples. One of the tastiest ive ever made?
Atalanta – Milan 1-3. Milans new player Piatek is craaaaazy. Scored one of those goals one can look 200 times at and like ”how the hell did he do that?” and Im so greatful he has arrived. About the cake: I wanted to redo a version of the Atalanta-cake I did some years ago but with more action sideways. A blueberry dream.
Milan – Cagliari 3-0. Chocolate moussehearts. Its almost time for Valentinesday so whats better then hearts? Milans new player Piatek shot his 3rd goal and celebrated with his boom boom boom celebration. Love it. Also loved these hearts.
Roma – Milan 1-1. Roma was beaten BADLY by Fiorentina (1-7) so I thought it was gonna be a kinda smooth sailing to 3 points. Unfortunatly the Roma players most’ve gotten some fire under their butts cuz they were fighting hard. Anyway orange upsidedown cake. It was sweet, soft and yummie.
Milan – Napoli 0-0. So Milan faced Napoli twice and I had this idea of a cake that I had seen on facebook about a year earlier and now was the time. Lots of time spent to make the ice (rocket candy) and the fire (chocolate). Together with 2 nice fillings.
Genoa – Milan 0-2. More bars to the people! Ive started to become the most procrastinating person on the planet. In the end I had about 45 secs to actully plate and shot these bars before running like a crazyperson to work. Well they were good and Milan WON!
Milan – Spal 2-1
Frosinone – Milan 0-0.
Milan – Fiorentina 0-1. Ive got a new camera and im working it out. Hence the crappy quality. I mean its more grainy then my eyes when the clock rings morningtime but the blueberry cheesecake was delish!
Bologna – Milan 0-0. Raspberry and blueberry bars with looooots of almonds. I must admit I was dissapointed Milan didnt win but cant get everything.
Milan – Torino 0-0….
Milan – Parma 2-1. I was hoping Parma would carry their 3rd kit this game. Its a black shirt with a black cross framed by blue and yellow highlights. As a swede I felt connected to it and still wants it. Its like that awayshirt Sweden should’ve had for years. Anyway my cake is not sick with chickenpox, I just didnt sift the orangezest (slacky me) .. So the cake is kinda half-ass. Only the brown from Milan and orange for Parma..
Lazio – Milan 1-1. You should know by now that im obsessed with matcha-tea. So expect the Spirulina-madness to kick in now that Ive got my hands on that. After Lazio ”fans” earlier this year said that women weren’t welcome to the arena becaus of well… sexism.. I felt sad that Milan didn’t win.
Milan – Juventus 0-2. The idea on baking and presenting a cake like this had been floating around in my mind since the year 2010. One might think waiting 8 years to bake a cake is a little long but everything is a process. Haha. Back in 2010 I was searching for wedding cakes and found a version of this that forever etched itself into my heart. The game? Blaaah.
Udinese – Milan 0-1. This winning streak is aaaawesssoooom. More awesome are these amazing cookies. Dont you dare just scroll on, like you dont care! Took about forever to make them but it was worth it. I know they are .. well.. not perfect? But just like the win they were great.
Milan – Genoa 2-1. More lingonberries! Soft gingerbread cake with lingonberries. Have you noticed that there is lingonberries in all my cakes this season? Good for you. Now go wash your hands. And eyes. The game? Dont know. Was working BUT WE GODDAM WON!!!!!! And normally Genoa beats us!
Milan – Sampdoria 3-2 Godbless a win. I swear the neighbours were starting to use the heart-start machine through the wall after Milan for some minutes not only lost the 1-0 lead, Sampdoria got 1-2 before Higuin could even it out and Suso making a greeeeeeeeat goal at the end making Milan win. Anyway chocolatecookies with lingonberry icing.
Milan – Inter 0-1 Normally the derbygames require some badass out of the world pastry and this was of course not any different. Was hoping my cake would bring some magical luck but no.. At least it was insaaaaaanly good. Had good help from my collegues to devour it.
Milan – Chievo Verona 3-1. Mudcake with lingonberries. Higuin scored twice and happy faces all around.
Sassuolo – Milan 1-4. Apples! Normally Sassuolo get baked goods with pears but them green apples claimed the victory this time. This was one of my first time baking brioche-buns, 7 eggs and like half a ton of butter for 26 buns but hell yeah it was worth it.
Milan – Atalanta 2-2, Empoli – Milan 1-1. I was occupied visiting Amsterdam and thankfully both Empoli and Atalanta are playing with blue shirts so I could smack them both together in this delish Nutella cheesecake with blueberries.
Cagliari – Milan 1-1. First time ever a drink in the blog and probably not the last. This magic drink isa matcha tea and some drops of lemon. If you follow me on Instagram you can see a movie of me mixing it. All drama, no music but deep and meaningful content. No shake and stir – just pouring.
Milan – Roma 2-1. I think my neighbours 5 houses away heard me yell when Cutrone scored in the 95’th minute with Milan’s winning goal. To this magnificent occasion I baked an orangechocolatefudge-flavored pie with seasalt and lingonberries. Orangechocoalatefudge, is that even a word?
Napoli – Milan 3-2. So Napoli is the team that start this madness this season. Dont wanna say anything about the game since it was just .. BLAH!! Gingerbread muffins with lingonberries and blue matcha frosting.
Forever FORZA MILAN!!!
