New Valentine's Cakes and Petit Gâteau
My name is Olga, I'm from Kiev, Ukraine. My passion is making cakes and sweets
to treat friends and relatives.
Everything started from my grandmother, who taught me how to make Russian "pirozhki" before I could speak. During all my childhood grandma and I were enjoying cooking different Russian foods, especially for holidays. From that time I started experimenting with different technologies and found out that modern mousse desserts implement my taste the most. Now I'm using recipes from best chefs as well as creating it by myself. I love mousse desserts for their variety of tastes, it allows you to play with different combinations achieving harmony.
