Master Baker / Maestro Panadero

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

SAN GERALDO'S GREAT-GRANDFATHER (from Bergen, Norway) was a Master Baker. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. It was our pal Luke's 2nd birthday and San Geraldo baked the cake. Classic Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream frosting. Four layers. Between each layer, cream cheese and apricot jam.

EL BISABUELO DE San Geraldo (de Bergen, Noruega) era un Maestro Panadero. La frase hecha en inglés es, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." (literalmente, "La manzana no cae lejos del árbol)." No sé si es lo mismo en español; es como "de tal palo, tal astilla". Fue el segundo cumpleaños de nuestro amigo Luke, y San Geraldo cocinó la tarta. Tarta de chocolate con glaseado de chocolate "buttercream.' Cuatro capas. Entre cada capa, Philadelphia y mermelada de albaricoque.







LUKE LIKED IT!
¡A LUKE, LE GUSTÓ!


DUDO SAYS, "IF IT'S NOT FILLED WITH 4 AND 20 BLACKBIRDS, LEAVE ME ALONE!"
DUDO DICE, "¡SI NO ESTÁ LLENO CON 4 Y 20 MIRLOS, DÉJAME!"

      Year 1 was Luke's first chocolate cake. He pushed it away. This year was different. He found heaven.

  4. Carlos, too, is a Master Baker. Why, if he had his way, he'd be MasterBaking morning noon and night!

      Poor Carlos! The cake WAS amazing. Even better than it looked. I think Jerry is a keeper.

      Wishing you, Mrs. C and Junior Chatterbox the same! There's leftover frosting in the fridge and more apricots for dipping (scooping). Oh my!
