A 9-hour marathon…

Carmeta’s 18th birthday ended another though week at school. In this buffet we had to prepare South European dishes. As the responsible for the portuguese dishes I’ve made the bolos de bacalhau and bacalhau com natas with all my nationalist pride.
On thursday, totally assured that my work at school was almost completed I left early to my first attempt at a fondant glaced birthday cake.
I’ve started at 3pm with the dulce de leche filled chocolate cakes (Carmeta’s favorite flavors) on a 9-hour marathon.
Despite all the fatigue there’s nothing like a coloured ending…
