  3. Hai your work is fantastic God bless you ,I have a Q for you in germany I often experience difficuties whipping cream with those schlag sahne coz they are 30 % how do you get it done at ease to peak???????

  4. Hi Anony,
    only schlagsahne works for me, the one comes in bottle melts soo fast.
    i usually refrigerate schlagsahne, so it will be cold when I work with it.I use a spatula to scrap down the sides. also when I whipp it i move my hand back-forth rund n so ..feeling funny i m explaining like a kid ;)
    but it could help you mayb . try to do it uniform...thats all i kno now
    u r motiv enough to succeed all the best :)

  5. Thank you so much ,iloved tolearn you are a mallu with those mathi fry, and parotta tale, i love your simplicity and love for cooking ,i love cooking and baking too,well this time at work place one of my colleagues were poiying onto a recipe and talking of schlag sahne so she said her tip was to add butter and whip the schlag sahne,,, as to increase the butter content and helps making a creamier peaky icing/frosting,,What would you have to say about this,and how will a sahnestiff work with schlagsahne,what is your opinion .

  6. Hi Anony,
    haha anony is a nice name for u. ya sahnesteif is one powder , which also helps to prevent sahne from melting, i think its starch .
    Butter is thick so it gives firmness , actually I hav once recipe Butter cream torte where we use mainly butter for frosting.
    its tough to say wot is good becuz lots of recipes with both. why dont u pick 2 recipes and try on weekends. especially its almost winter now & naturally all r craving for sweet n fat
    c u around , good night :)

  7. Yaya anony is nice, some time I feel you calling me antony:)))))))))) Will try and let you know in person when its done so,Thank you tonnes,Love you ,Take care.

    Cheers Sis,
