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…

This post was inspired by this lovely little comment from a post over at Bleeding Espresso: Please let’s ignore the fact that Berlusconi has fooled a majority of Italians into voting him into office a third time, OK? And also that my local party lost as well. Instead let’s move on to happier, comforting topics. Like food.
