Evas (very) sweet cakes

Well sometimes it takes a long time between postings but that usually means that I am busy with other things.

Some years ago I worked with a food magazine in Iceland called Gestgjafinn and they had guest chefs coming in and doing editorials for the magazine.
One of these was a nice and soft-spoken women called Eva Laufey and I was so happy that she wanted to work with me for this great new project, Eva´s Cake Joy (my very poor translation).
This is Eva´s second book and my third cookbook and I am very pleased with the outcome.
Some information about Eva is that from being a really enthusiastic food blogger she has become one of the biggest TV chefs in Iceland (she is still blogging, although I have no idea how she finds the time).
And I have to say that working with Eva is one of the best experiences I have had for a long time, Eva is such a gentle person and 1000% professional that it is a pure joy to work with her.
You could easily underestimate Eva at first being such a gentle and (very) calm character she is but she backs that up with a very strong opinion and great and well developed ideas without having to to prove her self to other people.
What I am trying to say is that working with Eva is so fun and easy that it was more like chilling and drinking coffee with friends rather then working in a hot kitchen and trying to create pretty images.
And lastly I must add that tasting the cakes after the shoots did not make things worse ;-).
I am posting a few favourite images from the book but you will have to buy the book to get the recipes.
