Food in Motion

When Holly Becker from decor8 asked us to contributte to her blog we were super-happy! We met Holly last summer during our Food Styling & Photography Workshop in Weimar. She held such an inspiring and motivation speech that both Jewels and I were blown away. Our heads spun with ideas and it was then that we had the idea for our blog: Two girls cooking on two continents! Thank you, Holly, for adding this adventure and spice to our lives!

So now there will be a new “Food in Motion” video every month by either Jewels or me where we show recipes step by step. The first video is a Pistachio Marble Cake I made and filmed myself doing it. Being the baker, cameraman and editing it, is a whole new experience! So stay tuned for more videos every month on decor8!

And special thanks to “Carry Me Home” for letting us use the great song “Medusa”. Check it out here!

How to make what you see in our video…

  1. Ein richtiger Frühlingkuchen – wunderbar! Von einem Marmorkuchen mit Pistazien habe ich noch nie gehört und auch nicht gesehen, sieht aber zum Anbeissen aus :-)
    Euch einen gemütlichen Sonntag und liebe Grüße!
