German cake song goes down well with Latvians

Jöran Steinhauer, a student and the son of a parish priest from the German city of Bochum, is Latvia’s contender in the European Song Contest 2014.

He made a name for himself in Latvia with a farewell song to the country’s currency, the lat, called Thank you, little lats. Now he has won out against rivals to be nominated for the Song Contest with his new song Cake to Bake.

This chocolate cake originated in the black forest region of Germany. Bakers from Germany created a dessert called as Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. The name Schwarzwälder is a tourist destination in Germany and famous for its abundant cherry trees, which is believed to be the inspiration for the cake.

There are various versions of the origins of this cake. One of the most popular versions of the cake history is that it is said to be invented by a confectioner Josef Keller in 1915 when he made the black forest cherry. However, it was not until 1930 that the recipe of the cake was first published.

mothers day cake today come in every shape, size, and flavor. And with access to every retail possibility, we have the option of purchasing anything we want. From pre-made cakes at the grocery store, to pre-ordered cakes from your favorite bakery, Mother’s Day cakes should reflect the personality and unique style of your mother.

Let’s be honest, at one time or another throughout your life – and most likely on many occasions – your mother has baked or purchased you a cake. Whether it was for your birthday or to commemorate another special occasion, cake has taken center stage at many of our family festivities. So it stands to reason that to celebrate our mothers – those masterful cake deliverers for the rest of us – that we should include a cake to mark Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a time for gathering together with friends and family to show appreciation and respect for the most important women in our lives. The holiday is often loaded with commercialization that detracts from the sentiment that most women desire from their children and loved ones. While Mother’s Day gifts are appreciated, many women would also prefer something from the heart such as a craft or a sweet poem. But if you aren’t the creative type, what better idea than to bake her a Mother’s Day cake? Finding the perfect recipe doesn’t have to be difficult and can make the day quite memorable.

Start off your cake ambition by searching for creative Mother’s Day cake pictures and ideas. Perhaps you want something edgy and over the top. Maybe you would prefer a simple gesture with her favorite icing. Or maybe you want something in between with fresh fruit and decadent chocolate shavings. Whatever it is, there’s a picture of it somewhere.

After you decide on a design for your baked gift, find a recipe that is suitable for mom. A new trend is Mother’s Day ice cream cakes. These cakes are meant to be frozen until the day it is to be eaten so be sure to arrange for proper storage. Perhaps a traditional chocolate cake is on the menu. Spice it up with chocolate shavings and some chocolate covered strawberries. The possibilities are endless. You can truly find Mother’s Day cake recipe inspiration anywhere.

After you find inspiration and are content with your design, be sure to accumulate the appropriate decorative supplies. While icings and decorative items can be found at the grocery store, some people opt to take it a little further with specialty decor from party stores or pastry stores. These locations often have special molds that say “mom” or floral patterns that can make the cake truly special.

If your cake doesn’t turn out as planned, consider ordering a cake from a bakery or ice cream store. Though these can be expensive purchases, they almost always come out perfect.

His victory comes as a surprise for the weekly magazine Diena:

The German student Jöran just wanted to give his fans a gift: a piece of cake. The 28-year-old and his band, The Foreigners, only really entered the contest because they wanted the opportunity to play in front of a big audience. But the simple song Cake to Bake went down so well that the decision was made to send the German to Copenhagen at the beginning of May. Two Latvian pop stars were even left high and dry. The professional musicians are sulking while show business tries to explain how the son of a priest could win. And the people are still humming the tune: I’ve got a cake to bake. I’ve got no clue at all…
