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!

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…
