Friday, April 30
The 30th of April is a national holiday in the Netherlands. We call it Koninginnedag (Queens day). There are lots of traditions and activities on this day. And the whole of the country is coloured orange, which is our national colour. While we are not doing much to celebrate the queens birthday this year, we do like to eat the traditional orange tom pouce (see above) !
P.S. I just read that Tom Pouce is the French version of the English Fairy Tale character Tom Thumb. Not sure how that relates to this yummy cake though...
