    “I would never hurt you, Weiss. You are a very good friend and I hope we can speak more. The Apothecary is going to be getting an expansion, soon. Perhaps you could visit and come see it.”

“Really? I can’t wait to see it! Oh! And how are the Pokemon handling all the new faces due to the skull brawl? I know some of them might be a little shy with all the crowds. I’ve been in Kalos due to some legal matters so…” And out came a large box of pokepuffs! “I brought them a treat and for you?”

She pulled out a cake box. 

“Bee sting cake!” She grinned happily. 

Bienenstich (German Bee Sting Cake)

Yeast cake with vanilla custard filling topped with honey-coated caramellized almond slices


For the dough:

  • 250 g wheat flour
  • 20 g yeast
  • 125 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 35 g sugar
  • 35 g butter
  • 1 pinch of salt

For the topping:

  • 75 g butter
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 5 tbs milk
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 100 g sliced almonds

For the filling:

  • 500 ml milk
  • 45 g starch
  • 1 pck vanilla sugar
  • pulp of a vanilly bean
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 75 g butter
  • 40 g powered sugar



Stir sugar and yeast into the milk and let stand for a couple of minutes. Put flour, butter, and salt nto a bowl. Add milk mixture and egg and knead until you get a smooth dough. Cover bowl with a cloth, place it at a warm place and let the dough raise for an hour. Put the risen dough into a springform (26 cm diameter) and let rise for 20 more minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the topping.


Put butter, sugar, vanilla sugar, honey, and milk into a pot and cook it briefly. Fold in the almonds. Spread mass evenly onto the dough before it gets cold and hard. Bake for 20 minutes at 200 °C (390 °F) until the top is golden brown. Let cake cool down. While cake is baking, make the filling.


Heat up milk, starch, vanilla pulp, vanilla sugar, and sugar in a pot under constant stirring. Let it cool down to room temperature. Beat butter and powdered sugar until fluffy and gently fold in the cold creme.

Remove the rim of the springform and slice cake open horizontally. Spread a thick layer of filling onto the lower half of the cake (works best after reattaching the rim). Put upper half of cake on top. As it may be difficult to cut the cake because the topping is crusty and the creme in the middle is fluffy and smooth, the upper half of the cake may be pre-cut before putting the pieces on top of the creme.

intenselouis  asked:

oh hello, you don't know me. We've never met. Nope. I was wondering what type of cakes would each of the boys be and why ?

Can I be your friend? 

Harry:  “ Bee sting cake” or Bienenstich. The reason for that is pretty simple. “ According to legend, it is named for a baker who made a cake with a honey topping, which attracted a bee that stung him.” (if that doesnt sound like Harry, I dont know what does). Also, its one of my favorite cakes, its pretty simple but also good looking (in terms of food), it gives a lot of people a feeling of home and comfort.  (he could also be a pastry with lots of fresh fruits though!)

Liam: Carrot cake  Carrot cake is highly underrated by most people. If you do get whats so special about that cake, you are going to fall in love with it though and dont pay much attention to the “carrot bits” anymore. That pretty much adds up with Liam and how he is seen in this fandom in  my opinion. 

Niall: Niall is a cupcake, all the way. There is only that much you can take, eating two cupcakes at a time can make you not wanting cupcakes for a really long time but if you split it up and take bits and bits at a time, you are going to enjoy it. Cupcakes are fun, can look cute, can look over the top. Most people love cupcakes, I think Niall would like this comparison.

Louis: Chocolate cake - I MEAN. Everyone loves chocolate cake? You can have a simple chocolate cake, one with many layers, one with a chocolate frosting, one with fruits, one with a warm chocolate core in it, so many varieties. Chocolate cake makes you happy, when you’re sad, it made you happy as a kid, it will make you happy when you grow older.
