Cake with berries from Alexander Seleznev

“On Women's Day, it is customary to give flowers. But the ladies will be especially pleased if they present such an elegant treat with berries to the solemn bouquet, ”says the absolute champion of Russia in confectionery art Alexander Seleznev and gives a beautiful half our readers an exclusive recipe from her new book "Festive cakes.

Simple recipes. "

In life must always be a place not only heroism, but also holiday. The man who knows how to enjoy life, its large and small events, but such a person really lives! Yes, we all tighten the daily routine, the endless problems, we always someone something to be ... But let this whole carousel to find time to communicate with each other not only on business matters.

I've met people many times in my life who have forgotten how to smile. New Year they can celebrate sitting at the calculator, birthday - on a business trip ... They think that they are too serious and busy to waste time in vain. "Poputu" in their understanding is a friendly gathering with a pie over a cup of tea, a birthday party with dances and caravans and other "inconspicuous" joys that make our life brighter, and we ourselves are kinder. Personally, I sincerely regret such "human robots", because in their lives there is no room for ordinary human happiness. After all, happiness is when you make someone else happy when someone very close to you smiles next to you.

This book I created for those who love and appreciate human contact. For those who cherish the quiet home games at Christmas, merry festivities on New Year's who stops the heart in anticipation of Valentine's Day, those who, as a child, is happy birthday. In short, for those who love the holidays, which means that loves life!

Always yours, Alexander Seleznev
