Continuing the them from Wednesday, Sisters and Brothers, I want to share a few more gifts I've been given, why they were good or not so choices and a gift we gave ourselves last night.
As I hope you remember, a while back I gave you a little photo tour of a shop in my town which has an entire half aisle of chocolates from around the globe. It's a great place to find products that are not available anywhere else in town. Two groups of friends realized this for one of my past birthdays and got me some bars from the event.
It was on sale and I thought it might be worth our trying. The cake inside was protected by a plastic box that was great for saving what we didn't eat. Word of caution, don't turn the package upside down though because the cake will fall abit and the lovely top get mushed slightly.
You just lift out the cake using the tabs from the paper bottom and lift it again to replace it in the plastic box. It is easy to cut once it is resting on just the paper bottom and sides because the side fold down. Oddly this cake should have five servings -- each one 100g of a 500g cake. I had no idea how to cut it like that so I just did four pieces and we each had one.
The next two days it is my birthday and birthday party so I'm sure there will be more chocolate surprises ahead.
