After our birthday week, we enjoyed Mother's Day Brunch. The menu included potato gratin, broccoli and tomato frittata, beet and mandarin salad, fresh bread, and a Vanilla Almond Cake with White Chocolate Mousse topped with Sparkle Berries. All homemade, of course.
The month continued, surprisingly, with lots of candy making. Salt water taffy, chocolate taffy, caramels, fudge, and brigadeiros came out hot from the kitchen. In fact, the chocolate taffy got so hot that I burned my finger; resulting in a second degree burn. The good thing that came from this was, I learned that I am not, nor ever will be, a candy maker. All and all, it was a month packed full of cake.
