Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

It’s my son’s sixth birthday today and this time we didn’t make the cake but bought it from D’Alicia. It was a chocolate cake made with alternating layers of chocolate sponge, whipped cream and dulce de leche covered completely in dark chocolate and decorated with almond Florentine cookies.

He still has his pirate-themed birthday party on Friday to look forward to then we’re all done with the endless celebrations and preparations that have kept me busy since Christmas to New Year’s Eve to Reyes (Three Kings or Epiphany) which is celebrated in Spain. Isn’t that a great way to start the year?
