Birthday Chocolate

 This year Peter was is Brussels for his birthday, but he returned home to a lovely cake made by our neighbor Deana. It was dense and moist, iced with a ganache glaze and decorated with almonds, mint leaves and a handmade chocolate rose.

We just happened to have some vanilla ice cream in the fridge. My favorite combo!

 Peter brought us some gorgeous Pierre Marcolini chocolates from Brussels, each a little burst of intense flavor. I found them less sweet than a lot of Belgian-style chocolates, more towards the French style. My favorites were saffron and thé citron. Gone, but not forgotten....
