Recipe for hindbær snitter (Danish raspberry bars)

Recipe for Danish raspberry bars
In a recipe collection of Danish pastry, a recipe for hindbær snitter (Danish raspberry bars) for sure needs to be included. Hindbær snitter are extremely popular in Denmark. The raspberry bars taste very fruity, are super delicious, and don’t take too much time to make! They are a little bit different from the other Danish cakes in my collection, as they do not contain any marzipan. I found the recipe at  AmalieLovesDenmark.
Here’s what you’ll need to bake them:

How to use the DIY drawing projector for decorating cookies

... as a potential alternative to a Kopykake projector
In this post, I would like to show you how you can use the do-it yourself drawing projector for decorating cookies. Although I haven't worked with a Kopykake projector yet, I think the handling is similar (at least when it comes to tracing the projected image with a piping bag; see for example SimplySweetsByHoneybee). But, with the DIY drawing projector, you cannot flexibly adjust the size of the projected image. The image on the transparency film must be the right size for your cookie.

A DIY drawing projector for decorating cookies

... a potential alternative to a Kopykake projector
In this post, I would like to show you how to build a simple and inexpensive drawing projector, that can be used for decorating cookies (or for other drawing projects). To make the drawing projector, you'll need a flashlight, two boxes, a CD jewel case and some other stuff (like scissors and tape). Building this projector was fairly easy, and did not take much time.

Recipe for Danish banankager
Banankage is my favorite Danish pastry. Since I was a child, I used to eat banankage when I was in Denmark. The cakes look and taste like banana. For some time past, I have been thinking of baking these cakes myself.

Recipe for kartoffelkager (Danish potato cakes)

Recipe for Danish potato cake
Kartoffelkager are one of my favorite Danish cakes. The name “potato cake” refers to the look of the cake. Potatoes are not included as ingredients (except for potato flour, but you could probably also replace it with cornstarch). The cakes taste like vanilla and marzipan.
