Strawberry-mascarpone-cake – and what with “Despair, 2 eggs and time management” has to do

Spontaneous bake a pie, if you only have two eggs in the house, the fridge is half empty and the shops have closed for Pentecost? I love these challenges!

Actually, I would have to bake anything, because it was announced neither guests nor should I prepare something for any celebration.
then why I wanted to bake a cake in such conditions? Certainly not, because I like to have stressful situations. This has only HIM to do. And his birthday. and indirectly – once again – with my time management.

The love Tobias – Many of you probably as cake baker known – had a birthday and was on his blog for his virtual birthday table Cake desired. As euphoric as I often am at the beginning of an action, I wanted this necessarily participate.

Well, that was about a month ago. In between, I then – Shame on me – the event totally forgotten. Until last Saturday night – 23 o'clock. I scrolled in Tobis blog post on the terms and conditions, only to discover with horror that I had time only until the next day. panic-stricken – and I am not exaggerating here – I ran to the fridge to see that I had only 2 eggs there. 2 Do! We should be on Pentecost with relatives or on the road, of course I do not really shopped. What a cake should I ask topped with two eggs?

Giving up, I did not. And certainly not again because of my oh so great do not make time management a little time. I made my night thoughts, hoping to get THE idea in a dream, so I could take off early the next morning. A brainstorm I had not in a dream, but ultimately was baked rather by feel, finished and decorated. The result? Look for yourself:

That I only “The residue” have baked, this looks but not too bad, right? The spontaneous visit the next day was very happy about this cake with strawberries and mascarpone.
And now you think you probably “Oh, how nice to have a happy ending”?
