The perfect ending to
a sisters surprise birthday visit: Kiev cake, made from scratch. (Please note that "from scratch" has nothing to do with me, but rather features the baking talents of the lovely Irina, which talents have exacerbated my cake snobbery.) The first forkfuls provoked utter awed silence at the dinner table - a rare feat in our family!
Tomorrow, we savour delights of the visual variety in a jaunt down to Yellowstone Park. Stay tuned!
