Shame on me for neglecting my blog for so long. Where do all the hours go? There just never seem to be enough hours in the day between motherhood, cake orders and housework. I wonder if it’s possible to do it all without sacrificing anything. If you have the answer, please let me know. I’m sure less sleep is not it. ☺

I did manage to fit in a whirlwind trip to Europe in between cake orders. In 17 days we managed to visit Belgium, Germany, France and Italy. The Europeans certainly know how to indulge, especially in all things sweet.  Their chocolates and desserts are to die for.

Being a lover of Macarons, one of my favorite places was Pierre Hermé Paris. OMG, their macarons are incredible. My favorite flavours were Pistachio, Chocolate and Crème brûlée. My husband and Son liked the Lemon the best. It’s a shame they were gone so fast.

Another amazing experience was my visit to the Lindt chocolate museum in Cologne, Germany. The best part is that you get to taste the Lindt chocolate inside  the museum.  They gave you wafer dipped in melted Lindt chocolate.. Yummm…☺

I also really enjoyed visiting Ladurée on Champs-Élysées in Paris for their petit four and all of their yummy treats. I definitely want to go back to Paris. It’s no wonder so many people want to visit, it’s such a beautiful city.

There was also Fassbender & Rausch in Berlin, Germany. Wow, what a chocolate shop. It was huge, with an incredible selection of everything chocolate. They have some large chocolate models on display of things like the Brandenburg Gate and the Titanic.  I was amazed by the incredible detail.
