Mothers’ Day Preperations

13 May

Peter baked an almond cake yesterday. This morning he filled it with a creamy custard and apricot jam. The cake is resting at the moment in our fridge. Later on Peter is going to add some almond flakes to the outside of the cake.


This is an earlier photo of the cake in the fridge.



Here is the cake with a bit more of the creamy custard added to it. Soon it is going to be covered with almond flakes!


While Peter was decorating the cake this morning, he also found time to do a yeast cake with buttery crumbles on top!


We have finished our lunch and also done the dishes already. We had red cabbage, braised pumpkin pieces. potatoes and thick cut bacon chops with mustard. Delicious! Sorry, I did not take any pictures of our lunch.

We just found out that daughter Caroline is about to get ready to go on the train to come and visit us. So she as well as some other visitors are going to be here tomorrow for Mothers’ Day. In three more days is going to be Peter’s birthday. Of course we’ll be celebrating the birthday already tomorrow together with Mother’s Day. Peter’s sister Ilse, who lives in Berlin, is one year older than Peter. Her birthday is today. We hope we can congratulate her later on by doing some skyping with her. Ilse always points out that she is one year and three days older than Peter!
