Default Thank you Ante

I got a nice surprise over 1 week ago from Ante. A bright yellow box in my doorway from Croatia! I opened it to find potica (po teet' sa) almost like my Grandma's that I bake now. It's bread dough rolled out with a filling of brown sugar, cinnamon, honey, walnuts & whatever, rolled up & baked. I tried taking a pic & putting it on here but my 'puter won't let me - GRRRR. It has a mind of it's own sometimes.
On the package listed the ingredients but all I could make out was "rum". Is that same language as here? I will have to try putting rum in mine!
Anyway, thank you Ante for a nice surprise. It's gone BTW (was very good toasted w/ butter). And, all I did was send some dragon fruit cuttings!
Now I'll have to send you one of mine for Christmas huh? - so we can compare.

Hope to see that pictures soon.

I'm fairly certain I ate this cake/bread one day, if not eat it regularly here, but I can't make heads or tails of your descriptions. Could you Ante please post some pic of your potica here? Thanks. Nice job btw. I'm surprised that the police dogs in customs didn't ate it.
