Cakes….at a price

Pictured here are the two cakes we got for our son’s belated third birthday party.

Italians really do know how to make some of the most wonderful cakes in the world.  This tasty looking treats which we had made to order for our son’s party looked very impressive in the flesh.

I think the photos do them justice, although it is difficult to see just how huge the chocolate cake was.  Must have been half a metre in diameter!

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Needless to say they were super yummy, but all that yumminess came at a price. 94 Euros, would you believe.

And yes, I nearly fell over when I was told the price.

Still, what price your child’s happiness? A rather high one, or so it would seem…

There is, however, that fairly well known adage which goes, “any publicity is better than no publicity”, which you may have come across.

Little Storms in Italy

I’ve been a bit too snowed under with work recently to write about what’s going on in the Living Museum. Meanwhile little storms have been blowing up all over the place.
