Recipes

Together with Sophie Dalbäck, winner of the 2022 season of Hela Sverige bakar – or The Great Swedish Bake Off – we at GILLE want to inspire you to create your own sweet treats with playfulness and flair. Sophie loves to create, and to add an extra sparkle to any normal day – that was one of her reasons for participating in the television programme. Her speciality is making simple desserts and bakery goods look elegant, and now you can try out her delectable recipes. Every new day can bring new joy, so go ahead and make every day a little more pink together with GILLE and Sophie!
