Cake for Scarlet


 Oof! What with all that French robot jiggery-pokery, and reams of photos to get through, I have neglected to provide cake for Ms Scarlet
 Herr Mago began this meme here for poor, beleaguered Ms Scarlet, and recapped it here. And, upon her return, The Very Mistress MJ has also provided cake in her own inimitable style. This leaves me the only member of the Coven not to have done so. Until now.


 I made these almond and raspberry buns with just a few of the glut of raspberries from The Mother's allotment. And I'm sorry, Ms Scarlet, but they're not as almondy as I would have liked, so next time I will add a little more almond essence and a good dollop of marzipan!

    1. You wouldn't be saying that about the ones I've just baked. They really are well done.

  2. Charming and delicious, Mr Devine!
    I am worried about The Mistress.... she is baking on the kitchen floor.... is this usual practice in Canada do you think? Do they not have worktops and suchlike over there? Meanwhile.... oh, bugger.... forgot what I was saying.... distracted by Aidan. Again.

    1. You're welcome, Ms Scarlet! I'm sorry it took me some time to get around to furnishing you with cake.

      Speaking of which: We'd better club together to get The Very Mistress some kitchen furniture, it seems...

    2. In the interim, I have fashioned together a couple of sturdy tree branches and laid a plank across them to use as a work table.

  3. MARZIPAN !

    Skip all that other useless stuff ! Ad MARZIPAN - YEEEAAAHH ...

    *cough*

    I like Marzipan, you know ?

    No worries about The Mistress, dearest MsScarlet : Perhaps she'll calm after some drinks, steady hands and all.

    1. You may have my marzipan, Mr Mags. I usually push it to the edge of my plate after I've licked off the Royal icing.

    2. ::makes note to order a bulk load of marzipan for Herr Mago::

      Bleeuch! Royal icing? I think between us all, we could finish off a wedding/Christmas cake.

    3. Scarlet licked Marzipan.

      Where's the chaisse-longue ? Bilder stürmen durch meinen Kopf ...

    4. I dread to think what kind of images...

  4. These little almond and raspberry buns classify as food porn.

    The GOOD kind. Not the cake farts kind.

  5. I should think The Mistress will revive shortly.Heatwaves don't last long over there, especially on the Wet Coast.But she might appreciate a package from Ikea.

    1. Does Canada have IKEA, you ask?

    2. Mr Devine must have reached that age where memory starts dissolving..... it's a slippery downward hill-thingy.
