Just a quick pic of Alessia’s cake, it was absolutely delicious!!! The MIL made it – sponge, Italian cream, Italian chocolate cream and the creamiest icing on top!! It was huge, I have half of it sitting here in my kitchen which of course will have to be eaten by me for the week – oh the lbs;(, anybody like a slice????:). She had a great day and loved all the attention especially the singing of happy birthday in English and Italian. The MIL laid out a feast of course – pasta in tomato sauce with peas and pancetta on top, rack of lamb, Italian sausage, roasted carrots, roast potatoes, mash potatoes, salad and a beautiful bottle of Primitivo to wash it all down and finished off with a creamy espresso! Not too dissimilar to our normal Sunday feast – god are we spoilt:) Till the next one!!!


p.s. thanks for all your lovely comments on her birthday post:)
