Birthday Celebrations are important in some cultures. In America people have big parties for kids and adults – sometimes even surprise parties! In Holland the person celebrating their birthday gives the party. In Japan, everyone has January 1st as their birthday! And so forth. Cake art!
What do we like about birthdays is CAKE! What an indulgence to have a nice cake. Fruit tarts, anyone?
Prize winner cakes? Yes, please!
Or Sweet little fancy cakes! Why not?
January birthdays are winter birthdays and celebrating in the dead of winter is a great way to chase Jack Frost away! Today or any day let’s celebrate birthdays or anything you feel like with gratitude, oh and a little cake.
Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
Have a good weekend.
The Bijenkorf (The Beehive) is an upscale department Store in Amsterdam. The store has its own bakery. And what a Bakery. These chocolate and strawberry are mini cakes. “From our own bakery, a fresh strawberry mousse on a light biscuit (cookie) Covered with a fresh fruit jelly, white chocolate and raspberry.” Love the butterflies made from chocolate on top!
Celebrate winter 🥶
The butterflies are chocolate?! I’m dying! When’s the next flight to Amsterdam?
