We celebrated Caroline’s birthday on Monday, the 9th of December. The ice-cream cake was a real treat. I think in Germany a cake like this is called ‘Eis-Bombe’ (ice-bomb).

  1. What a spectacularly shaped cake! Looks yum! I got a laugh out of the picture of the two men taking pictures πŸ˜€
    Fascinating bit of info about Peter being a bricklayer once. Wishing Caroline a very happy birthday indeed πŸ™‚

    1. In an earlier life, when I was a bricklayer, there was a story around, that went like that:
      “A mother and a daughter looked out a window and observed a group of toiling men. The daughter asked, ‘Mum, who are those people there?’ And her mother answered, ‘They are bricklayers, my child.’ After a moment of contemplation the daughter asked, ‘Are bricklayers human, too?’ ”

      I think this put me off bricklaying forever. ;.)

  2. Thanks, Munira. πŸ™‚
    This is where the birthday cake was from:
    A shop in Victoria Street in Sydney!
    Messina is a-port-city-in-northeastern-sicily-on-the-strait-of-messina/
    The Syney shop’s trade name is: Gelato de Messina! Homemade on the premises.
    This shop is in Victoria Street in Sydney. I blogged about it on the 8th of August.
    They make yummy ice-cream/gelato! πŸ™‚
