Cooking with your Heart

Cooking with your Heart does not only mean to put all your love into a dish. Also all the utensils and accessories should look great and beautiful.

Like these oven gloves:


They are embroidered different roses and buttons on them.


And of course they not only look great, they are very useful.

Instead of a thick batting you can use a heat resistant material like Thermolam. then you can use your new oven gloves in your daily kitchen work.


With our embroidery collection you can embroider 4 different oven gloves:

2 different gloves, one for each hand and …


…2 different heart gloves to slide in.



You can chose from 2 hoop sizes.

Size 1 is for the 16x26cm hoop. This size is for teenager and small to medium women’s hands.

Here you can compare size 1 and 2.


Size 2 is for common sized hands up to big hands (it even fits the Stickbaer’s hands).

To embroider size 2 you need a 18x30cm hoop.

My personal glove size is 6 so the above size 1 for the 16x26cm hoop is perfect for me.

Of course you can get both sizes in a package. From today, in our Stickbaer Shop.

For sure our Rose Oven Gloves are perfect from the inside as from the outside. They are fully lined and no seams are visible.

The wonderful fabrics I took from the “Hello Darling” collection of Moda that you can get here at Stoffekontor. Thank you, Stoffekontor for the great fabrics!!!

Enjoy your winter weekend und seid lieb gegrüßt



Something for the wall? For the couch ? For the taste?

A kitchen isn’t only a functional room, it has to look great too. Anyhow it is like this in my kitchen…

Cause of this I thought, that a little bit useless things is perfect for every kitchen.

For example a hanger like this one…


So that everyone knows for which room it is, it is written in big letters in the middle of the hanger.


This embroidery you can find in the new embroidery file wich you can buy from friday in our shop

You only have to embroider it at a nice piece of fabric, maybe you can sew a border on it,

sew in two loops and hang it up.


If you want to do it perfectly, you could sew in a little  braid.


This you can find of course too in the wonderful embroidery file.


Perfectly matching to the hanger I had sewed a pillow.

But it didn’t find a matching place in my Little kitchen. so I have to put it at our bank in the dining room.


The braid made with crosstich you can repeat as often as you like.

All patterns can be combined together.


All motives are made with cotton yarn. That looks like being hand made from your grandma.


So comfortable I had used my wonderfully decorated kitchen for baking.

Who is following my blog already already knows that I love baking.

This time I had baked flower Cookies.


Of course this wasn’t all, exactly twelve I had  made. I think that they will be fresh for some days.

With my new cutter I had a lot of fun this time I have made many Butterflys.


Next time I will make hearts.

Nice greatings



Safe covered baking book

At Sunday I have shown you my favorite baking book. It is so wonderful pink, it is so nice to look at!


But after a few years it wouldn’t still look so pretty like now.

That would be so bad :(.

A nice cover will be fine to protect it …

A cover like this for example?


Made of  wool felt, embroidered and sewed, it is a nice book cover.

In this cover I have put in my own recipes, but for the new cooking book I will sew another one.


The roses are made of cotton yarn…


And if you are looking for this file in our shop you couldn’t find it ;)… cause it will be at the shop

at the next Friday.

And in this file there is so many that one blog artikle isn’t enough.

Cause of this tomorrow there will be the next one.

Nice greetings until than





Cute bakeries

Actually, I was always the old-fashioned cake baker.

        Sheet cake, yeast cake, normal cookies, Christmas cookies these was already the highlight of my decorated baking arts .

And now its my swedish friend Lotta’s fault, that I now have a whole drawer full of cake-decorating items.

But I will  report in the right sequence:

Lotta always finds the most amazing sites on the Internet and then send me the links. So recently I found this page:

Passion 4 Baking

WOW! I sat there for hours and had a look at this great site. And when I realized that the blogger Manuela Kjeilen “The back fairy very cute” has published her first book in German, I ordered it.

(Actually, for a good friend, who should get it for a birthday, but that’s another story … I’ll have to order another book, because I keep this here!)


The best recipes for cupcakes, Tarts, macaroons and more are on the 284 pages of this beautifully designed book.

Yummi! I have to bake everything,


While running over the pages I found out very quickly that my kitchen isn’t good equipped to bake really nice looking cookies and cupcakes and decorate them.

So I have spent a week for upgrading my equipment for sugarbaking  a little bit.

 4 color fondant, various silicone molds for flowers and leaves, a Deco-Queen (piping bag along with several tips, there are perceived thousands, I found out), I now also have a muffin tin, a tiny mold for the finest writings, eatable glitter powder and pastel-colored food coloring.

Now I’am equipped and began making my first cupcakes.

I had the most fun in making the flowers and leaves using fondant and silicone molds a day earlier.




Some glitter…


 I’ve learned that you have to use the fondant adds CMC powder, so that the flowers are solid or just use flowers paste.

But for the start, I am more than happy, and these are my first flowers.


The next day I prepared the dough .

Before baking one has first to stir and because some batters actually need 7 minutes of stirring, I’m very happy about my Kitchen Aid.

TIn the meantime I greased the form, because even a silicone mold should be greased (as I now know).


This is the new mold I can use now.


It wasn’t easy to transport this little wobbly thing to the oven, it was a challenge. Next time I’ll put them just before at the baking sheet.

The result of 25 minutes baking looked very tasty.

The dough was already very delicious licked out from the bowl . With melted chocolate, real vanilla, strong coffee no wonder. These are all things that I likes otherwise too.


After cooling, the ising made of egg white, sugar, and vanilla came.

It must be stirred too even seven minutes, thanks to my beloved machine no problem for me.


And now on the cake, I could use my new Deco Queen for spraying the Ising.

Of which there are unfortunately no pictures because I needed both hands to do it.

But this was the result:


The flowers and leaves i have put at it too.


Next time i have to stir the ising more, because it was a little bit fluffy , put i am very proud of my first Cupcakes.


They tasted very well.


Next week there are flower cookies, with my new flower cutters.

Would you like to see them?

We will probably now increase 5 kg weight, but it’s worth it;-)

Love sweet greetings
