So gorgeous. No idea what that little girl is pouring on the cake "just like Mamma." Hopefully it is not the demon rum. The marguerites are suspiciously colored, but the orange vol-au-vent, perfection cake, and strawberry souffle look mouthwatering. I don't even know what the little boy is chowing down on, but I want some.

What makes a cake perfection? That one appears to have a bow. And maybe chocolate and ladyfingers and raspberries, so that seems totally on the right track.

A little smile planted on my lips when I saw this post. Delightful!

Jana, have you ever visited Lidian over at Kitchen Retro? I really think you two would hit it off...

A jaunty bow cannot fail to improve a cake, that much is true.

Louise- I have not, but I shall check it out! Thank you.
