The cake is a very important part of a birthday celebration in our family and I am always looking forward to try something new and special. This time I made a chocolate mascarpone cake with berries, a recipe from Linda Lomelino (Here). I am following her blog for some time now and am always amazed by her work. The pictures are unusual and so incredible special, you will simple fall in love, I promise.
I do admit my pictures are not as gorgeous as the original, but I can assure you the cake was just amazing. The combination of chocolate, mascarpone and fresh berries is incredibly good, a match made in heaven if I could say so. The cake is done quickly, the decoration takes literally just couple of minutes, the outcome however is more than amazing.
This time he got a "wellness weekend at Costa Brava" coupon, something I really love to give away. I know that this is not only a present for him, but then again if he says he needs nothing but us, a weekend with us seems to be just perfect. Experience presents is something our family does appreciate and cherish a lot, this is also something we would give away on a regular basis.
Another small present he got, was a personalized photo book named "I love you". A book with many pictures of him and Pablo spending time together. Fitting to the picture there was a small sentence saying, why Pablo loves him so much....e.g. I love you, because I can fall asleep in your arms when I am tiered", the picture would show Pablo sleeping in the arms of my husband or "I love you, as you try to copy my style and we always look so alike" on the picture you would see the two most important men in my life wearing almost the same shirt. I believe you got the idea of the book by now. My husband just loved it, he was touched and so happy about the funny sayings to the nice pictures. Personal books are something you can always give away for different occasions...having a small sentence here and there, makes it more personal and special.
