Sorry to hear you were under the weather.  Hopefully you will better soon and back to old baking self.  If you were my neighbor, we would eating a fairly fine, if monochromatic, cheese cake right now!

Aranchello is like limonchello, an Italian liquor,  only made from the outer most skin of an orange instead of lemon.

Here is some being made.

Wow DA...what an incredible looking cake....if it tastes as good as it looks I may gain 10 lbs. just looking.

My wife is the cake baker in my household so I will have to show her your creation.

Happy B-day to your wife.

Regards,
Ian

An idiot, probably!

Lovely cake and surely very tasty. I'll show that to my husband: "Look, what other husbands do for their dear wives..." (reproachful voice, saintly expression, whistful smile).

Happy birthday to you wife,

Karin

It tasted pretty good too, but what huge truffle doesrn't?  You might want to get a nice dinner and bottle of wine to go with that cake you hubby will be pleased to make...... to keep you slaving in that hot kitchen churing out that fine bread :-).

For dabrownman- Look up Dear Abby's cheesecake on the web if you would like to surprise your wife with an excellent cheesecake.  If her birthday happens to be in the spring when strawberries are in season, make a fresh strawberry topping.  I think she will be very happy!
