A BLACK DAY FOR MY COUNTRY...

What an irony!! On Friday I posted an army cake and today we had an army tragedy here in Cyprus.

At 5:45 today, a big explosion in a naval base, in Zygi, killed 13 people and injured 61 other. Some of them are very badly injured and we are all praying that they will manage to survive.

Today is a black day for my country. We are all in shock. Besides the human losses we are facing a huge problem with the electricity supply and water supply due to the damages that this explosion created to the electricity factories we have in Cyprus. The damages are huge...

I am trying to keep calm for the sake of my kids, but as a mother I am grieving with all those mothers who lost their children in this explosion.

My all rest in piece…

  32. EftychiaHello all, I Know this happened some time ago, I would like to say I send my thoughts and warm regards to all that have experienced this life changing ordeal physically, spiritually, mentally or all the above. I know the devastation you must feel. I hope your Cyprus has since then recovered a Great Deal, most importantly I pray that those that have suffered a great deal of loss are coping better perhaps through means of supportive family/friends and even a good therapist would definitely be valuable.
    Efy, I'm a Mom as well. A Mom of three.. My heart breaks when I hear of such unjust to little innocent children, senior citizens or all human beings that are good hearted with no hate or malice in them.
    Friday December 14 as you may know by now, Adam Lanzer walked into a school and brutally massacred over ten children under the ages of seven as well teachers and a Principal. I pained for the children and the heros that died. It really had a huge impact as I had a heavy heart and cried in pain for what the children physically, mentally, the kids had to endure as well the teachers/principal. Not to mention just like in your Country Cyprus, Connecticut as well American and World WIde, many of us feel the loss. Its an acts of violence on humanity. This has got to stop. I hope you & your loved ones are all well.

    It is a tragic and unexplainable time when instances such as these happen on any ones soil, especially when deaths have occurred. My condolences are set out to the families affected at such a heart-rending time. I hope that external outlets were willing to step in and aid you in any subsequent way. It is exceptional that you are staying strong for the sake of your family and although the grieving process varies for everyone, the stages are the same and it is important that you and anyone around you have a strong support system to express those emotions freely. When any life is taken away unexpectedly whether it is someone we know or not it is essential for you not to isolate yourself from the situation. I can relate to the confusion and desperation to change these horrific circumstances, but it is best to speak to someone whether it is through personal counseling, close friends or external sources.

"Κοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου" (από την Ήβη Λιακοπούλου)

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
