Happy birthday to meee!!
Few weeks ago it was my birthday and since I was little I’ve always loved to celebrate it with my family and friends, having cake, balloons and obviously presents!
This time I had the idea to create a dessert table which represented my life since I moved from Italy to Scotland. For the last 12 years in fact I’ve been travelling between these two countries and enjoying their diversities.
One of the biggest diversity is the cuisine therefore I divided my dessert table in typical Italian food on the right and Scottish favourite food on the left.
Cupcakes covered with Scottish Tartan and Scottish breakfast: egg, sausage and black pudding.
Scottish breakfast tea
Pizza and spaghetti cupcakes
Potatoes, crisps, porridge, every Scot eats them daily!
Illy coffee! One of the best coffees you can find in Italy. And the caffettiera, Bialetti obviously!
Scottish flag biscuit
Scots love it, I can hardly have a sip of it: Irn Bru
Plane butter cookies
Spaghetti bolognese cupcake (this is the correct spelling!)
Plenty of these men in Scotland (ehm not quite) but plenty of porridge
Grappa! My favourite!
Birthday cake: Madeira base with a Nutella and cream filling
