  1. Very pleased to have been able to get a hold of the Anniversary Biscornu, gorgeous design :)

  2. I know, isn't it beautiful? I love it too, but I've never made a biscornu before!

  3. Neither have I but I am always willing to give it a go! Especially if in the end I have such a gorgeous thing in my keeping :D
