When in need of photo's my friend really comes to the rescue! Thank you very much for the pics of Jelena's birthday-party.
First a pic of the big cake I made for Jelena's birthday :)
It's made out of 3 biscuits on top of each other:
- regular biscuit with crème au beurre filling
- chocolate biscuit with strawberry-mousse filling
- regular biscuit with crème pattisière and kiwi.
I did make a change to the biscuit-recepy, but that's my secret ;-).
All decorated with rolfondant and marsepein. The decorations were 'glued' onto the biscuits by home-made edible 'glue' :-)
Next to this big one, there were also strawberry cakes, flan bresilienne and misérable, and Jelena had her own special cake with fruit and pudding.
After the cake it was time for presents!
Nancy, my apologies ;-) there's no pic with cake all over her face, but I hope this one (with spaghetti-sauce over her face) can make up for it :-)
I've been on vacation at our coast, here Jelena was taking a walk on the beach:
And when it was finally warm enough, she had to try out her new bathing-suit
Since she's now a big girl, I've been cooking some 'special' dishes
(the second one is courgette-gratin) It was very yummy!
here she had her first professional haircut
playing and sharing:
I gave a gift-certificate for a flight by hot-air balloon to the god-father of Jelena, here are some pics of his trip
And I hope this works:
(ps. she did not get hurt during the making of this video)
Stitching: to follow in part two (not tired of all my pics yet?)
