I know that I haven’t posted anything in one month … One more time. I’ve been really busy between Lush, organizing my 30th birthday party sweet table, busy baking a big « Harley Davidson » roses cake that you might have seen on instagram and my facebook page and I also did my recurrent training for the airline I work for during summers.
I have 4 posts that I could have published but like I said I ran out of time. I think that days should be longer that 24hours. 24 hours is clearly not enough in a day. And I am clearly exausted and need to rest somehow …
Lets go back to my 30th birthday. It was December the 2nd and I’ve worked my ass off on my first real sweet table. It was a Nutella party so everything was Nutella-ish. I’ve worked on my third fondant cake. You need to know that I am obsessed with the color teal for a long time now, before it was even trendy …
And lately I’ve been obsessed with chevron as well so what better that a brown and teal chevron cake and sweet table ? I hand painted the fondant cupcake toppers and same for the cookies. Everything was egg free because one of my friend was supposed to come and she’s allergic to eggs.
She could’nt make it because she had a baby just two weeks ago and couldn’t make it but it was the best excuse ever. I will post all the recipes in future posts. I baked :
– Nutella Cake with Dark Chocolate Nutella Ganache. Same for the Cupcakes.
– Nutella Hazelnut Brownies pops
– Nutella Pralin truffles
– Nutella Cake truffles (obviously made with leftovers from the cake)
– Nutella fudge
– Nutella Hazelnut milk
– Nutella Cookies with fondant.
It was a really small gathering, I did a « tea time » because I’m tired of people being too full for desserts so I decided that there would only be desserts so no excuses this time ! I had close friends and family over .We were about 15 I think.
A lot of people asked me: « What did you do for you 30th birthday ??” And when I answered a small dessert party ,they were like : « humm ok. What else ? Did you went to a club, got wasted and danced all night long ? ». I was like « Nope ». I don’t like clubs and I don’t drink alcohol.
I just wanted to be surrounded with the people I love and have a nice time. And eat cake. So I had a good time and the next day we went to Disneyland with my bff and another really good friend of mine. It was freezing and for the first time I got sick in Disney rides (Yeah I know !). But it was a really nice day. I bought some really necessary items like a Minnie mouse kitchen apron and matching towels. Really necessary stuff. I told you.
I am really Happy to be 30. I never really pictured me at 30 so everything is just fine. For the first time I feel good in my own skin. I’m doing a job I like. I can pay my bills. I am Healthy and so is my family. I have a lot to be grateful for. Of course my friends are married or getting married , had babies or trying to have babies and bought or are thinking about buying a place to live but I’m ok with that. My time will come.
It was also my first blogiversary December the 9th. I want to Thank You all. I have a little more than 500 followers between mail, facebook and wordpress, nearly 200 followers only on facebook and a little more than 700 on Instagram. I didn’t blogged about it as well but I went through the 100 000 views lately and today I am around 107 200. So thank you to keep reading and commenting even thought I don’t post regularly !
I need to say that I am not quite happy about the pictures today because my Godmother’s place is stunning but really « dark ». The light wasn’t good at all and I don’t have additionnal artificial light. My brother had trouble as well and a lot of his pictures turned out blurry and underexposed … But well. I’ll try to get better pictures next time !
Thank You !
