Presents from Italy

Easter time in Italy must be great. They eat cake for breakfast.

Or at least we ate the Italian Easter cake for breakfast. Which was probably the right thing to do.

The La Colomba cake is soft and light with candied orange peel pieces inside, topped with sugared and sliced almonds, infused with rainbows. The cake is shaped like a dove because ‘la colomba’ = ‘dove’ in Italian.

 

It was the frog that ate it all. Obviously.
