We did a birthday tea yesterday
and I never remember to take pictures. This one of my miniature lemon cakes proves I am changing my ways. I caught it just as Kim was packing them up to whisk them out the door. They are ,of course, a damp cake,soaked in lemon syrup, tangy enough that they demand your full attention for a moment or two. We also gave them miniature chocolate cakes, scones and sandwiches: roast beef with shallot blue cheese butter, ham and brie, cucumber and arugula, and my passion, freshly made pretzel bread with Branston pickle and aged cheddar cheese. Luckily, I had leftover pretzel so I'm going to greedily eat it right now! I'll be back to tell you how the rosemary syrup cake comes out.
