    There is not so much time left .. my belly is now so big I can hardly move but in these few days I have before the birth of my baby, I am trying to organize everything I can for the welcome party I will throw.. of course only things that can be prepared so in advance without getting damaged by time or warm temperature…

    So, I wanted to give you a little preview.. a “small bite”…

    These little men and all their funny faces are my latest creation.. they are made of milk chocolate and they are now carefully stored in the freezer!

    Aren’t these just adorable? They were so quick to prepare thanks to the silicone stamp I bought in France that I decided to prepare them not only with milk chocolate but also with white chocolate.. They came aout ultra cute!!!!

    Today was raining so we could not go out… so we took the chance to use the new small stamps I bought few days ago and we prepared some delicious single apricot cakes to eat in the afternoon.

    Not completely satisfied (nabiki wanted so much to open what she called “Kello Kitty drawings”) we experimented with some edible Hello Kitty transfers on some cookies. I have to say they work quite good… distributed by Sanrio, we bought them in France (I never saw them here in Italy).. they are a bit expensive (7 euro for 6 sheets) but they surely have a great effects on children. Here the result:

    Sunday and what I would not really define as a sunny morning… Only few eggs in the fridge and nothing more… what can I prepare?

    Well yes… I could try some meringues in a strawberry shape… they are beautiful and since it’s their season, thay are still appropriate… moreover they bring fun on the table, they are perfect with a fruit salade, a summer coffee or a snack in the garden and, last but not least, they could become a cute gift to give to somebody….

    The ingredients I used are always the same… this time I had 4 white eggs and two envelops of icing sugar (250 gr each)… I then put everything in the mixer, separated in two parts to color in pink and green and cooked for one hour at 100 degrees.

    The result? Well… if you are making them for kids I suggest you this version:

    With edible pencil is really easy and totally safe for them to eat…

    If you are searching for something more elegant or you want to donate them, then go for this version:

    Store your meringues in a metal box or a jar.. the important thing is to keep them away from the fridge and from humidity… Gnammy… Buon appetito!
