My love for cakes is big, what I mean by the title of this post is that there are very few things that make me feel warm inside as much as when someone bakes me a homemade cake!
I have my favourites: pavlova, cheesecake, carrot cake and sponge are at the top of the list.
I don’t usual go for Mille Feuille because however soft and flaky, you try to cut it and the cream just squishes out on one if not both sides!
There is one Mille Feuille though I have at one particular time of the year, Christmas at my in-laws, which my mind goes back to every now and again, because it is SO delicious: the one we get from a pasticceria in Mori, near Rovereto, Italy. The place is called Bologna and if you happen to pass by Rovereto, stop by for a slice of this wonder of cakes!
