presepe al cioccolato

Sweet nativity

This gourmet deli store always lures passers by with its window display. This year the new food specialty is a chocolate cake in the shape of a Christmas tree, decorated with a sugar-sculpted nativity scene, complete with Three Kings. Were it not for its spiritual connotation, it could be labeled as luxuriously self-indulgent.

Happy Epiphany!


  1. Soooooo YUMMY.

    I liked the look of several of the cakes. Very artistic!

  2. I love these presepi - in all forms.

  3. O YUMMY Epiphany! Delicious photo! Wish I could stop by that store...

  4. This photo is not allowed for viewing for Ladies after New Year celebrations, as the effect is paralyzing for their will and mind...

  5. I've never seen a nativity scene on a cake. Thank you for sharing this lovely (and delicious-looking) image.

  6. I think this delicious looking chocolate cake would definitely be one of the rewards of spiritual practice! Looks yummy!

  7. Did I get your taste buds working overtime? Tee hee...

    ciao, Luis

  9. ChuckP~ You slipped in before I could thank you. I agree, these cakes would make a convert out of anyone.

    Grazie Luis! La befana è stata molto generosa quest'anno.

  10. An interesting display and combination. Looks tasty, too!

  11. Oh! This looks delicious! «Louis», with his Norman-French roots, found a Galette des Rois for Epiphany.
