Very good !!

Today is a special muuuuuuy for the whole family as we celebrate the second birthday of my youngest son…. Congratulations, Paul !!

Given that fell on Wednesday, we met last weekend, Family and friends, to give a party as he deserves and, considering that started at 18 h and ended at 23 h, I can suspect that we all had a great time. Especially the birthday, clear, I could not be more excited about opening presents, eating sweets, and running around and playing around the room.

Today I bring you one of the cakes that I prepared and, so of course I tell, was a complete success and no crumbs were not. While the picture is rather cut regularly (I did it in the middle of the party and in low light and hastily), I think he appreciates a good pint of Baba, spongy and covered by a cream absolutely delicious. The vanilla frosting and the complement of sweets gave a finish very, very rich and, in my opinion, successful for a children's party. Good, That's at least what I think, although, in any case, it is best that you do it you cast one day and prove ;)
