My First Giveaway...and My First Fondant


Dear all...I'm very happy today - 100 000 is a big number, and I'm celebrating with my first attempt at creating a fondant covered cake (recipe follows). 
But,  first things first,...let me tell you who are winners of my giveaway.
Since 30/04, when I announced giveaway, I got 115 entries. All your names where written on paper pieces, put in a hat and then winners pulled one by one.  Winners are following 3 ladies:
- Tamara -  What's for dessert? (Croatia)
- Jelena  - f o o d f o r t h o u g h t (Serbia)
Congratulations ladies; please send me your addresses to 
jasnavarcakovic@hotmail.com

Now, the recepies...
Fondant is made from marshmallows, following Nanny's recipe. Thanks Nanny for all the tips!
Cake is 'Coconut and Lemon Cake' that I have for long time (copied  from a library book, probably)

Ingredients: (for a 23 cm cake)
(I used only 1/2 of  recipe - for a small cake) 
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
5 large eggs
1/3 cup lemon curd (recipe)
2 tbs lemon juice
zest of 2 lemons
3 cups cake flour
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup coconut
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk 
This is original recipe; I've cut the cake in half and filled with 1 cup of lemon curd! I decorated it with marshmallow fondant.


Dragi moji...Danas sam jako sretna - 100 000 je veliki broj, i ja  slavim uz moj prvi pokusaj kreiranja torte pokrivene fondantom (recept slijedi)
Ali, najprije da vas upoznam sa pobjednicima mog darivanja.
Od 30/04, kada sam objavila  nagradnu igru, dobila sam 115 ulaznica. Sva vasa imena su bila napisana na papirice, stavljena u sesir, zatim dobitnice izvucene jedna po jedna. Dobitnice su sljedece 3 dame:
- Tamara -   What's for dessert?  


Cestitke damama; molim da mi posaljete svoju adresu na

 A sad recepti...
Za fondant sam koristila recept od Nanny. Hvala Nanny!
Torta je 'Kokos i Limun Torta', recept koji vec dugo imam, a koji je vjerovatno kopiran iz neke posudjene knjige.

1 solja maslaca (250gr)
