Dear readers of Belmto. My name is Franzi, I’m from Switzerland and write on the blog LILLALUND a table and a plate. It is a platform for all my passions: cooking, baking and taking pictures. Every month I write a guest post and present one of Belmto’s jewelry pieces.

The ‘Cube Necklace
‘Sits beautifully on its own or as a layering piece. Gracefully accentuates the neckline. Adjustable - can be worn short or long. Makes a beautiful classic.’

Can you smell it? Finally, spring is in the air. And I couldn’t be happier.

Last weekend I moved to my new apartment. And I love arranging everything until I know everything is at its right place. Buying fresh flowers from the market, baking small cakes and eating them on my new favourite couch, surrounded by the most beautiful new cushions, that is what makes me very happy at the moment.

For today, I made some elderflower-lemon bundt cakes, a super refreshing and tasty combination. By the way, they’re inspired by one of my favourite drinks, the Hugo, which is made from Prosecco, elderflower syrup and mint.

Decorated with some lemon icing, lime and lemon zest, it even looks so pretty, perfect for cozy afternoons with your besties outside.


All the love and best regards from snowy Switzerland, Franzi

Dear readers of Belmto. My name is Franzi, I’m from Switzerland and write on the blog LILLALUND a table and a plate. It is a platform for all my passions: cooking, baking and taking pictures. Every month I write a guest post and present one of Belmto’s jewelry pieces.

The ‘Dainty Rings’ ‘Wear it regularly or stylishly at the top of your finger. Let's begin the stacking game! Have fun!’

Since the Aztecs, chili and chocolate have always been the perfect match. And what better combination can you ask for on Valentine’s day. I’d say let’s spice it up! Valentine’s day has never been my favourite day. I find it kind a weird to celebrate love just on one day a year. But let’s use this day for eating some extra chocolate, for watching cheesy movies or maybe some horror ones and for surrounding yourself with beautiful flowers. I love drinking hot chocolate with some chilli and why not combining it in a cake? These little cake hearts turned out so moist and tasty, even my father liked them. Why don’t you bake them for your lovelies? They’re super easy to bake and everyone will like them, I promise. And now I wish you a beautiful Valentine’s day, however and with who you will spend it. It’s gonna be a great day.

All the love and best regards from Switzerland, Franzi
