Yay! A theme I can certainly relate to.........
While many people were learning new skills during lockdown, I was discovering new sweet treats......not cooking them, just eating them. Some of which I will share this month, along with my other favourites.
Many of my most favourite memories of my mother's cooking involve 'sweet treats'. Melting moments, coconut jam drops, lemon pudding, six inch tall, double sponges filled with cream and dusted on top with icing sugar and strawberry jelly cakes. I remember the first marble cake; being so intrigued by the marbled chocolate, pink and vanilla all in one cake....I thought my mother was a magician...how could she get all the colours to appear like that???..
On the rare occasion when I went grocery shopping with my Mum and Grandma, I was allowed to buy one or two lollies. I usually chose two green frogs (not the red ones...haha). I could get two for 8 cents, in those days
Today, there is such a wide variety of sweet treats....and doesn't everything taste better, when covered in chocolate?...haha
Please join me this month in sharing some faves, both old and new.
Our colour of the month (CoM) is black. Some may say that this is rather boring or a non-colour, but I think black makes the pastels pop, the brights pop and the stripes positively sparkle. :))
