Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Schokoladen Frosting für Cupcakes.

This is a very nice & easy & delicious Frosting for Cupcakes, My aim doing this Frosting was to decrease the amount of Sugar as much as possible because I don't like the very sugary Frosting !
Thanks to my dear friend Noha who gave me Tips for doing those pretty stars on top of each Cupcake. I was really bad in decorating Cupcakes, So don't lose hope if you make bad Cupcake decoration, all you need is more & more training :)

Tahini Sauce . Tahini Soße.

Tahini Sauce is a very popular Egyptian (or Oriental ) Sauce, we actually call it in Egypt Tahini "Salad" not "sauce" , it's very easy , done in very few minutes & it's an amazing side dish with all grilled dishes . We also eat it with bread for breakfast or lunch beside other dishes , it's delicious & you can add the spices you want to it & you can control its thickness , by adding more or less water. I personally prefer it a bit liquidy , but some people prefer it thick, Some people add "Hummus" or Yogurt to it. but this is the basic recipe & you create your own recipe out of this basic recipe.

Easy Cake Pops. Kuchen am Stiel
