Cakes in Bolivia

I'm back! What an experience! I made it through the two weeks with only getting an intestinal infection. It was all part of the experience. So was the smoldering heat and the terrible roads and drivers. Mostly, I was humbled by the wonderful people there. They are so happy with the simple lives they have. It made me realize how lucky I am to live the way I do. I wish I could tell you all the million stories I have. It was wonderful! I'll never forget it.

This picture is on the last night we had in Bolivia. The family Roman threw a party for us and bought these cakes to celebrate. The little girl in the picture is Emily. She is 4 and is the sweetest little girl ever! The cakes are all pretty much like this. No fondant. Very colorful. Inside, the flavor of the cake was dull, not too sweet, but moist like a tres leches cake. Whipped filling with sliced peaches. Overall, very good, very Bolivian.

I'm way eager to get going on some new stuff. It'll be featured soon!
