Then came Saturday. We hosted a couple friend from Nürnberg. Not knowing if they would arrive by lunch time or not, hub suggested baking a cake for, cake keeps well even if not finished. And of course, he loveeessss cake. Here´s what I baked!
I remembered the first time I made these. It was for Mother´s Day last year and DH Oosthuizen and her hubby was with me. The question I remembered clearly was DH Oosthuizen´s hub asking me `How the heck am I going to slice that!`. That time, I arranged whole strawberries on top. Due to his question, I deliberately slice them thinly this time round and got them arranged this way. What do you think?
I bought quite a bit of Strawberries on Friday. You know, Sekt and Strawberries when blended together is superbbbbb! Me and hub had them for breakfast in between getting things fixed around the house. Haha!
Look what MIL made for me on Friday. Lovely isn´t it :-D
They arrive around 4pm and we proceeded to pig out straightaway. I like to think that birds of the same feather flock together because, in addition to the cake, we had 2 hugeee tube of ice cream with us too. I also discovered a wonderful drink recipe where I use to order each time I am in Coffee Bean outlet. Anyone here whom is a Sunrise fan?
While the men went off to their monthly Stammtisch meeting, the women decided to go for dinner in a nearby restaurant. Drebbers is one of the more well known restaurant where I live. I had their Spargeláuflauf (White Asparagus, Ham in Hollandaise Sauce Baked with Cheese) seeing it is still seasonal. Enjoy it while it last! And my meal did not dissappoint at all ...
