Some of my Favorite German Cake Recipes ...

The German Blitz Torte is a delicious example of one of the best cake recipes that you can whip together quickly using ingredients you already have on hand. Special for holidays and easy enough for a family dinner. YUMMY!

The Hazelnut Torte is also so simple to make. I just rolled out purchased marzipan to cover the cake and decorated with whipped cream and almonds. It even surprised me how simple it was and how beautiful it looked. My Mutti used to make this Hazelnut Torte all the time. It was her specialty.

Often she just served it plain, without the marzipan, and just dusted it with icing sugar. It still tasted good, but, in my opinion, the marzipan was the crowning touch!

German Cake Recipes really are the BEST!

I LOVE my easy Black Forest Cherry Cake.

You can make it look "real" with just a bit extra time, some whipped cream, and a pastry bag.

In fact, my 7-year old granddaughter, Lydia, helped make it as a birthday cake for her older sister, Alana.

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
