Steven had to spin at a beach party in Scheveningen and while we were there, we went bungee jumping. It was awesome! I wasn't nervous before, was even chatting with the guy that went up in the booth with me. However when it was time to turn around and I saw the sea below me, I thought 'Holy f*ck!' Never thought I could scream that loud haha.
Here we go...

Today's my brother's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!) and I told him he could pick a cake from the cookbooks I got for my birthday. So what does he do: he picks a white chocolate mousse cake, a cake of the most difficult category... It doesn't quite look like the picture from the book (the custard is nowhere to be found), but my dad, aunt and Steven said it tasted good...
Here the custard mix is still visible
A dab of whipped cream, some chocolate curls...
