What is Karel's Instagram of Best Pastry Chef?

I bought Karel's Instagram ( @karel_lmp11 ) will make your taste buds travel! Colourful, neat and greedy, all his cakes are more appetizing than the other and whet the appetite! We feel that the young man has really improved over the years and now offers pastries worthy of leaders. His 'Antananarivo' log with vanilla and caramel will surely make your mouth water! There is also a recipe from West Africa, hiakry (also called déguê), a very tempting dessert made from mille couscous and yogurt/curdled milk. In short, Karel's Instagram makes you smile, just like its owner! And if you want, you can also find him on TikTok (@karel_nitch).
