Celebration

Stefan and I are finally able to enjoy some cake and champagne.

I used the cake mix my family sent and added some Bavrarian creme so the blueberries would stick. I could use some work on cake decorating, but at least it tastes good!

And I love champagne! We always have bottles chilling in our fridge.

I'm not a sommelier, but I get really irritated when people called sekt or sparkling wines champagne. True champagne only comes from the champagne region of France. Since we visited Reims last year, it reminds me of our trip.

As Dave Matthews said, "Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain."

Looks like you two had a lovely celebration! Really, your cake looks beautiful and more importantly, I'm sure it was delicious!
It seems that Americans are much worse about calling sparkling wine Champagne than anyone else. Glad you had some real bubbly to celebrate!

It tasted great. Hopefully next time I can make one look a little prettier, but thanks!

We definitely had a fantastic time - and the cake was delicious... but that could be enhanced by the champagne!

Happy anniversary (better late thn never !!!) I also like Champagne a lot but I prefer Sauterne which is e sweet white wine thet you can drink with foie gras, roquefort or desserts . Yhis year for our 15th anniversary we were far from each other. But we can celebrate it twice !
