it's summer here or it's supposed to be summer. At the moment the weather is kind of blah though, so it's perfect knitting weather and my Rivendell socks are nearly done.
But the weather has been lovely and we spend a very pleasant afternoon at our friends house after the baptismal of their youngest daughter Johanna. My friend had asked me if I could make a cake and sure I could. So here I proudly present my Marzipan-Strawberry cake:
it was delicious, if I'm allowed to say so myself.
I have to admit, that this is one of the joys of summer for me. Fresh berries. I love them all: raspberrys, blackberries, black and red currant. And cherries :) and also plums. Isn't it great to walk over a farmers market, seeing all the fresh, local produce? I think it is awesome. Like the cake. There's over a kilo of strawberries in and on top of the cake.
The recipe can be found here. All the guests said 5 stars :) for this cake
