Matryoshka

When I was little, I was fascinated with a Matryoshka set my late aunt had that was a gift from her Russian pen pal. How I loved those Russian nesting dolls! The tiniest doll was the size of a peanut! They amused me for hours and I would stack and unstack them, wishing secretly that someday my aunt would bequeath them to me. She didn't! Sadly, no one knows until today where the dolls are. My aunt was single and didn't have any children.
Visiting Russia is on my bucket list and I hope to own these someday. Well, like I always say, if you can't have something, cookify it!

Those are so cute!! My husband visited Baku and brought back authentic Russian nesting dolls for our girls. They were a favorite for a long, long time!

Isn't it funny what you treasure from your childhood? So sad that she didn't know to leave them to you. :(

Your edible Matryoshka are just beautiful, Veronica. I have some that my mum gave to me when I was three and I've always treasured them. Unfortunately, I let my baby girl play with them when she was too young and now the smallest two are broken, but I plan to superglue tem back to their former glory very soon :) How cook that your aunt had a pen pal in Russia!

Aww, I'm sorry you didn't get the dolls. My husband recently had a dream we were visiting Russia. :)

So sweet...in the sugary way and the design.

To visit Russia would be a grand experience.
