Steak and potato wedges with wild asparagus
14 of January is a New Year’s Day by Russian Orthodox!
And surprise! The snow fell last night and just covered the ground. Not much , but lovely 🙂
Happy New Year everybody!
Noël à Brive du 10 au 31 décembre
I hope that a little girl called Bianca enjoyed her birthday cake.
Happy birthday, Bianca!
Just to say thank you to everybody, who came yesterday to taste the trial wedding cake .
I hope that everyone enjoyed their afternoon with a slice or two ( or four 😮 )
Here are a few shots of making the 5 tier wedding cake. By the way, it took 3 days to make the sugar decorations and the bottom layer (only because I was trying to find the best way of doing it and it had to be redone)
The rest of the cake (4 tiers of different flavours) was done in 3 days.
No fondant or marzipan covering, the cakes are covered with thin layer of Swiss meringue buttercream of different flavour.
Here it is!
It has become somewhat traditional starter at La Croix du Reh: Asparagus and Cherry tomatoes Clafoutis!
And the Star of the night is…
Here is another house recipe creation: White chocolate Smart Smarties Cake , that was served this evening for dessert at La Croix du Reh.
Our Dutch visitors absolutely loved it!
Tonight we are going to see our good friends and I’ve volunteered to make a dessert.
Of course another cake!
This time it is a home recipe and I call it Galya’s Rafaello cake. That’s right, it tastes exatcly like Rafaello chocolates .
