"Black Forest Torte" by Kayt

"Black Forest Torte" by Kayt, originally uploaded by saralonde.

My daughter spent a great deal of time making this one. All the little deer, as well as everything on this cake, were made by hand. The inside - if we dare cut into it - is 3 layers of chocolate genoise, chantilly cream, and sour cherries. The outside is tempered chocolate and the baroque ring surrounding it is tempered chocolate with cocoa butter design and a special type of non-melting powdered sugar for snow.

Sehr gut!

Spring: It's all about the flowers

What can I say? I know there are photographers that groan over flower pics and flowers are not particularly sophisticated subjects, but after a long cold winter, those colorful blossoms that are here for such a short time are irresistible.

At least they are to me. Besides, they make me very happy. Good enough reason to shoot and share :-).

Since some of the blossoms were already turning brown :-(, I decided a slightly vintage look might help.

I love this time of year. I always look forward to seeing the ferns popping out their heads and slowly unfurling, as if they were checking to see if winter was over and it was safe to come out.

"No April Fools, Just a Springtime Pic"

Spring is always uplifting, isn't it? Pretty much SOOC, because that bright blue sky speaks for itself.
Trying to get my photo mojo back, after a bit of a break.
