Lausanne has two ludothèques. Instead of lending books, these libraries lend toys and games. The Pinocchio has been around for 40 years and La Cigale et la Fourmi for 20 years. They got together and organized a big anniversary weekend: Lausanne Joue. A friend of mine who volunteers at the Pinocchio asked me to bake the cakes for the event; two 3-tiered cakes with decorations to match the flyers and posters. Needless to say I jumped at the opportunity.
