  16. Merry Christmas Samson,

    Gorgeous photos of the cakes!


  17. The cakes are not as good as they appear in the photos. We felt a little suspicious whether they are really made with cake as we saw some wooden/therma coal pieces in the church cake (the trees part). Over all we felt it was not worth seeing.

  18. Amazing! Thanks, for sharing Anthony.

  19. Craciun Fericit si La Multi Ani!

    Happy New Year to you and your wife Anthony. Hope you have good days! and that it will continue to be so also in this year. With us :-) we had a nice Christmas celebration, but the whole family have had flu, so not so much out in the nature that we had wanted. A winter so different than last year, not so cold thankfully! more rain.

    Tack Care and say hello to your beautiful wife from me.
