It is a miserable grey, wet day here in Teddington. To brighten things up I thought I would post a few of my most colourful foodie pictures that I’ve taken recently.
Boxing Day Birthday Cake
My mum’s boyfriend has a birthday on boxing day, so she always tries to make a non Christmassy, light and refreshing birthday cake. The cake below is layers of fatless sponge, freshly whipped cream, homemade strawberry jam and fresh strawberries layered throughout and on the top.
I was lucky enough to visit the Salone De Gusto in Turin last October, It was an amazing experience that I will certainly eventually write about. The bright and colourful packaging drew me in, and although I didn’t actually try any I thought they looked amazing.
My colleague, and good friend, Emily Phillips has asked me to help make her wedding favours for her wedding in September. We are aiming for 3 beautiful, bright macarons in a box for each guest. Our first practice, just a few weeks ago, went really well and the macarons laid out on their trays ready for baking looked so pretty!
I hope you enjoy the spash of colour to brighten up such a dull afternoon.
