Mother's Day Cake

I, like most of us, have a mother. And on Mother’s Day my mother has gotten some kind sweet treat presented to her with her breakfast. And for as long as I can remember I have been the one to make this treat, with assistance from my little sister

This year how ever, I moved into my first apartment and the baking was passed on to my 15-year-old sister, because she wanted to surprise (even though nowadays it’s a bit odd to talk about surprising) our mother first thing in the morning like every other year. She decided to make a cake, so we planned a simple but tasty cake for her to make. But due to her inexperience as a cake maker she forgot the cake into the oven and it burnt almost all the way through. And so I get a call from my sister, who is about to burst into tears telling me what had happened and that she didn’t want to even try and make a new cake because she was afraid she’d just ruin that one as well. Fortunately I live fairly close to them, so I told her to pack up some necessary equipment and come to my place so we could prepare a new cake.

And here’s what conjured up:

Admittedly this one is no beauty, due to us almost running out of cream, but it didn’t seem to bother anyone so who cares.

The cake was created with the following pattern:

- a regular 6-egg cake
- blueberry quark as filling
- cream on the sides and white chocolate on the top

Blueberry quark:
- 300g blueberries
- 400g of regular quark
- 4 dl of cream
- sugar to taste

Whip your cream to soft peaks. Soften the quark a bit and gently fold it to the cream. Add in as much or as little sugar as you like. Add your blueberries and keep folding until the colour of the mixture becomes even. Check the taste.
