“Fastelavn” is a part of the church year, it is the onset of fast that lasts till Easter. Nowadays it doesn’t mean anything else to protestants like us than having some sweet buns with our coffee this Sunday and in many homes we’ll find twigs with many coloured feathers. This year I brought out the feathers but ended up not goingout to find twigs. When the girls were younger we always decorated. But the buns are out of the oven! A lot of people serve them with whipped cream. We don’t do that here (I think it is such an odd combination) but I put icing sugar on before serving. What a baking weekend this has been for me. That’s something I only do if I feel like it. And I did.
