I received a lovely postcard from a lovely friend in Wellington, with an enquiry as to the types of sweet treats we have been indulging in. And then I realised that, actually, we ate two kilos of colomba cake in just five days, and maybe that isn’t the best idea. Not that it wasn’t delicious..
**the colomba is a cake eaten at Easter and shaped like a dove. Really very similar to the Christmas panettone, and not so convincingly shaped like a dove. Which end is meant to be the head?
