This is Mon from Delissimon, taking a picture of me, while I take one of her. That's bloggers for ya! We spent a lovely morning together at my house...
...made by me! Yes I was brave and served up cupcakes to the Cupcake Queen. She was super gracious and said they were "very light". Phew!
Mon brought along the most delicious gluten free lemon cake (baked with almonds and polenta)...
I was fooled by it's humble exterior.
I said to Mon, "Do you want to use the leftover icing for the top of it...?"
Mon is very diplomatic; she so very politely declined.
She also declined a sprinkle of icing sugar.
I forgot who I was talking to! The Queen of Baking!
Would you spray paint a Da Vinci? Would you colour in a Van Gogh with pastels?
Inside this cake was all kinds of lemony goodness. Oh I am loving this cake. LOVING.
Er, loving just a little too much.
Mon kindly (?) left the remainder of the cake with me. And I had it for breakfast. Oh woe is me!
Here is Mon's recipe. Too delicious.
Loving Easy Pina Coladas in the Middle of the day...
Don't worry these are alcohol free. Just think of them as a pineapple-coconut Smoothie.
Blend together a 450g can of lite coconut cream, a can of crushed pineapple and a splash of pineapple juice.
Whizz it up and whizz it good. Think you're done? Take a sip, sigh and whizz it some more.
When it is so frothy it looks like heaven, you pour yourself a glass. And one for your lovely bloggy friend.
Sip while eating cupcakes and polenta cake under the grape vine.... Ahhhhhh.
Loving what the mailman brings...
And a book sent all the way from America for me to review! Can't wait to dig into that... (will have to wait until I finish with "Cold Mountain" which I am also Loving...)
Loving this girl's gappy grin...
