Some of the popular Russian cakes are Napoleon (a version of mille-feuille), honey cake (multiple thin layers of honey dough layered with whipped sour cream) ...

Why don't we ask Lena to tell us more about Russian pastries since she is our dessert lady? (Lenchik, hi! I'm so glad you joined!)

Thank you for a wonderful week of food in Moscow through your posts and photos!

I"m dreaming of this honey cake from now on...

I think that Russian desserts are not very well known in the US; it will be interesting to hear other tidbits now and then in the future from you and Lenoba!

Thank you again and best wishes for your new family.

This has been a wonderful blog, and I now have a few more recipes to try.

Thanks for sharing some of your life with us, and giving us a Muscovite's-eye-view of the Russian capital today. It's a lot more interesting and colorful than we've been led to believe in the States.
