Today is my 25th Birthday, time has passed by so fast that I can hardly believe it! I made some special banana – cranberry cupcakes with a cream cheese cover for work.

The recipe was really easy here I share with you:

Banana – cranberry cupcakes

  • 250 grButter
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 pkg of baking powder
  • 1 table spoon of Vanilla extract
  • 3 Bananas
  • 200 gr Cranberry Jam

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 150 gr cream cheese
  • 4 cups of icing sugar
  • 250 gr of melted butter

Start by mixing in a bowl the softened butter with the sugar, in a separate bowl mix the eggs with the vanilla extract. Add the second mixure (eggs and vanilla) to the first mixure, then add the rest of the ingredients until you get a thick consistency for the cupcake pan or cupcake wrappers to be filled in.

Fill in the cupcake wrappers or cupcakes pan with the mixture and heat for 20 minutes at 180 degrees in the oven.

Decorate the cupcakes with the cream cheese frosting, by mixing the melted butter with the cream cheese and adding one cup at the time of the icing sugar.

Let me know how your cupcakes taste!




I hope you enjoy the pictures of me and my colleagues with the cupcakes. Do you have any comments? Do you have any cupcake ideas?


25th birthday Hawaiian Party Luxembourg

I would like to share with you the result of my 25th Birthday Hawaiian Luau Party. After some weeks of preparation it happened this weekend and I am very happy with the result. I had to order most of the decoration items online, since in Luxembourg we don’t have such a big variety of party decoration stores. But with a budget of 50 Euro I could transform our small flat into a tropical paradise.

The main idea of the party was to celebrate that the sun came out in Luxembourg, so I asked our guests to come dressed with something Hawaiian and prepared some tropical cocktails with a variety of fruits. If you want to know how to make this cocktails and learn how to decorate the cups check my precious blog post: How to Make Tropical Cocktails. After the cocktails I tried to create some tropical style barbeque with many fruits and vegetables brochettes and finally we had some Hawaiian themed games such as Limbo Dance, a Hula Dance competition and a Pineapple balance competition.

I hope you enjoy the pictures, and please share your comments with me.
