I am back at food photography. And baking. And making my family happy. They love my cakes, at least that is what I hear from them. Hoping the baby will love them too in the near future.

Staying in Athens during summer is not much of a fun, so little treats like that, are a must.

After such a long a time, I managed to bake a cake. A simple almond cake with some lemon frosting and chocolate drops on top. These kind of tastes can make my day and my family`s too. This is a far too easy recipe, appropriate for a mom of a new born baby and a toddler, with no time availiable.

Simply gather all the ingredients, put them on a mixer, bake and decorate.
