Friends and chocolate cake are the best





Sometimes, it feels good to stop the clock, to break the schedule
and say yes to a few hours of happy chatting with friends.
It's also a very good excuse to spend a comforting time making a chocolate cake.

I would say that baking is my no stress moment.
Melting chocolate with butter calms down
and its sweet smell takes me back to the soft round planet of childhood.

Parfois, ça fait du bien d'oublier l'heure et l'agenda
et de dire oui à une après-midi avec ses potes.
C'est aussi une très bonne excuse pour faire un gâteau au chocolat.

Pour moi, la pâtisserie c'est mes moments de non stress total.
Rien que l'odeur du chocolat chaud qui fond lentement avec le beurre
me calme et me renvoie au monde doux de l'enfance.



We were eight adults, one toddler and a baby for tea last wednesday,
all talking at the same time.
It felt like a merry holiday tea party.

Nous étions huit adultes, un petit garçon et un bébé pour le thé, mercredi dernier,
on parlait tous en même temps.
C'était très gai. On se serait cru déjà à Noël.

And I'm also grateful to my friends because they inspired me this cake box, today.
When I have 5 mn, I'll show you how to make your own if you're interested.

J'adore aussi mes amis parce qu'ils m'ont inspiré cette boîte à gâteau aujourd'hui.
Quand j'aurai 5 mn et si l'idée vous plaît, je vous expliquerai comment faire votre propre boîte.

I also want to say a big thank you to my first lovely cutomers on the etsy shop !
Here is the first parcel I sent today.
I've decided to wrap all my parcels like gifts as it's so much more pleasant.

Je veux aussi dire un grand merci à mes premiers clients si sympathiques sur la boutique etsy !
Voici le premier paquet que j'ai envoyé aujourd'hui.
J'ai décidé d'emballer tous mes paquets comme des cadeaux. C'est tellement plus agréable.

Wishing you all a wonderful week end

Je vous souhaite un merveilleux week end

What a Sunday treat, to see your post and dream of chocolate. The photographs are so evocative of the experience of chocolate - particularly Spanish chocolate, which I love.

And ... your packaging ... it is just so beautiful and says, 'I care about my customers'.
