Om ikke lenge fyller min flotte storesøster 40 år, og i går var det trivelig feiring. Jeg ble spurt om å lage marsipankake, og når har vel ikke jeg lyst til å bake i slike anledninger?
This is the cake I made for my sister's birthday celebration yesterday. I had much fun planning the decorations: the cherry tree reminds me of spring and of the beautiful tree in my sister's garden, while the owl symbolizes the birthday question "How owl are you?" (the language teacher part of me loves homophone jokes like this one...). The answer to the question is of course "40 and fabulous"! The tree is handcut, while I used various cutters for the flowers, numbers and parts of the owl.
