Easter (set 3)
To finish off the delicious lunch, there was of course the traditional Italian Colomba (Easter dove cake), but there were also lots of other more tempting treats. My brother’s wife is the creme caramel maker extraordinaire in the family. She manages to get the consistency perfect every time. No bubbles, just velvety goodness. She keeps alive the memory of her grandmother by making her fruit cake on these family occasions. My niece had fun decorating the chocolate cup cakes she made and I made a frangipane tart with figs from mamma’s garden.
I should also mention my nephew. He took a lot of these photos. Need I say, I think he is pretty good.
