    Thank you for posting this recipe! I made it for a cultural event at my son’s school and it was very pretty, looked like the photo. For wine I used Prosecco. Unfortunately I didn’t get to eat any, other than a delicious little taste to see if it was done. I will have to make it again. But I’m out of Prosecco 🙂

    • Ana Rocha ??

      Thanks so much for the feedback ? I’m so glad you did it and that it looked good ?? don’t forget to buy more wine when you go shopping next time ?
