Lanie & Kirsten here.
The other day Melody and Kaya ventured outside. While they were checking out the snow, we were preparing a super yummy Olympic-themed snack.
Actually, Lady Jem sent us an awesome treat from
A Lambertz Baumkuchen Edel-Zarbitter-Scholkolade.
This picture is a little blurry, but that’s it in the box.
So we opened the box and unwrapped the plastic…
And put the cake on a plate.
It’s an almond cake enrobed in dark chocolate.
Sorry, another slightly blurry picture. But doesn’t it look tasty?
The chocolate is a hard shell around the cake, so pieces break off when you cut it. Not fluffy frosting.
It’s kind of like an Entenmann’s Rich Chocolate Frosted Donut, but thicker chocolate and denser cake.
Super yummy! Thank you, Lady Jem!
Then we thought... (flashback conversation)
What should we have with the cake?
We’re watching the Olympics, right?
Oh, yeah! The Russian Morning tea from Kusmi. Awesome idea!
So we boiled our water, put tea in the glass pot, and let it steep. The hot tea was perfect with the cake.
Kirsten was thrilled Saturday when the Swedish women’s cross country team won their relay. She was funny to watch…intently muttering, “
!” until the last
sprint when she started bouncing up and down and yelling, “Go, Kalla! Go, Kalla!
Go, Kalla! Woo Hoo!” Go,
(giggling then getting serious) We missed seeing the Swedish men win their relay.
