The ones that go all out and celebrate their birthdays.
And the ones that hide under a rock.
I'm the second-type.
Nevertheless a little celebration with friends and family is required
and I do take joy in - for once - buying a fabulous cake and champagne to celebrate.
So here are the delicious goods that I picked up at my favorite bakery
here in Maastricht, Peter Lemmens.
An authentic Dutch apple pie with a closed top,
and a stunning 'speculoos' cake dome that is filled with
speculoos cookies and a speculoos cream-mouse.
I'm virtually sending you all a slice!
