Many representatives of Soviet generation still remember the time of their youth falling into nostalgia for those days. They used to smell like warm pastry.

  1. The first one is Zefir not Beze. Beze is hard whereas zefir is soft. You forgot Kiev cake and Tort Napoleon. How I’d love me some Napoleon right now, mmmmmmm.

  2. I LOVE Lemon bars/cakes. 🙂 Here in the US they are usually shorter and denser, but still have that great taste, and the powdered sugar goes everywhere. 🙂

  3. The first one is not “beze”, it’s “zefir”. It’s a soft, marshmallow type sweet. Beze is hard and melts in your mouth. Yum to all those sugar bombs though!
