What best than a surprise to start a Sunday morning?
I like to spoil MrB with special treats some now and then, so this morning I have prepared for him a warm cup of strong Italian coffee (he loves it!) served in my new set of pottery, then I made a delicious and light fruit cake (which is a quite typical Italian cake for weddings, expecially during summer). Last touch, I have added a small vase (a jam vase!) with some pink and red dalia flowers and few other decorations I had in the house…
ITALIAN COFFEE. I bought a nice set of coffe cups by Pip Studio, a Dutch company which has created this new collection of colourful pottery…have a look at them they’ve got really cool stuff! I also used a pocker card with a little message for MrB (Buon giorno!)
WEDDING CAKE. Then I made a fruit cake which is a typical Italian cake – I leart how to do it when I was 8 years old and I’m still making it because I think it’s delicious and quick, so a good way to impress your guests!
Last but not least the TABLE CETREPIECE. I never thought of dalia flowers, but yesterday morning I went to the town market and they were on offer, plus I was impressed by their vibrant red colour, so I thought to give it a go and see if I could get a nice centerpiece for MrB breakfast table. The ones I bought had very long empty stalcks, so I thought to cut them and put them in a small vase. I wanted a very simple, not pretencious centerpiece and that why I decided to use a jam jar…The result is this small and cute centerpiece, which fits quite well with the rest of the decorations…
By the way, MrB enjoyed the cake very much…just half left!
