When one goes to a celebration, one gets to enjoy cake.
When one goes to a close friend/family’s celebration, one gets to take home, some cake.
When one throws a celebration…
One has cake… for DAYS.
In case you missed it, we celebrated our parents 50th wedding anniversary this weekend. And once the balloons start to deflate, dust gathers on the decorations, the wine glasses are washed and the leftover food is dished out amongst us all, there is one thing remaining that just stares at us from every angle of the kitchen.
And in today’s edition of this special series, we have ‘Prespani,’ a soft and crispy blanket of delicious pastry encasing a ground walnut mixture, surrounded by lots of icing sugar;
we have Cake Pops, finished off in white chocolate and an edible golden dust (for a Golden anniversary);
we have a slab of Continental Cake (it is much larger than what the photo shows, much like your side car mirror);
and lastly, a little plate of miscellaneous, some as mentioned above, with the addition of a mini pavlova cup, a chocolate nutty cake, and a vanilla slice.
DROOL DROOL DROOL.
(And I’m eating a cake pop as I write).
Zumba help me. I’m going to need it this week.
This week, of cake.
