This week was A's birthday. Like the good wife that I always strive to be, I wanted to get him a yummy birthday cake. When we were in France, he craved 'Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream' cakes. Which were, of course, impossible to find in France. Here in the US, all other good cakes are impossible to find. I don't like a lot of cake in my cake -- I prefer yummy mousses, chocolates, fruits etc. Something like a good Opera Cake or a Marzipan cake that is so easy to find in Provence.
Well so we had to settle for a tarte aux fruite. L (my 2 year-old) said 'oo-la-la' upon seeing it.
Missing you French cakes;(
