The imperfect gâteau, ready for the day...

I will be taking care of the treasured fêves which adorn the top layer, bien sûr

Quelle artiste, Genie, bravo! Moi aussi, j'ai une collection de fèves pour l'Epiphanie. J'adore la galette des Rois! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Treasures indeed are these fêves. It is almost impossible to find them now with the proper theme - the birth of Jesus. Alas, secularism has overtaken this, too...
(sigh)

Joyeux anniversaire!!!
Merry Christmas, dear friend.

It seems a shame to cut this PARFAIT gateau Genie. The fêves just make it even more special.

What a fabulous-looking gateau that is—and what an amazing (almost mis-) adventure for poor old Joseph and his beasts! I'll bet you treasure these beautiful feves all the more since the big rescue.
