A Simnel cake (a traditional Easter fruit cake with marzipan inner layer and decoration and a little dash of brandy) made in my kitchen in my grandmother’s memory…
Wishing you all a Happy Easter, Sunday, Spring day, Sunny day or whatever you like to call it…
All cakes made and eaten by me!

Wow! It’s so pretty, and I’m sure it’s delicious. Happy Easter!
Passover desserts here this week, but I did make an almond cake that’s pretty good.
Happy Pesach to you all, I guess we all have slightly bigger tummies this week 🤭
And yours has knobs on! I’ve seen that done but my grandma’s (and mother’s) simnel cakes had icing on top of the layer of marzipan. You really have to like marzipan.
My Christmas cake has the icing topping but this one is mum’s favorite as she’s the marzipan lover. She’s a little perturbed that the cake is here in Paris and not there in Dublin, I think 🤭
Pity 3D printers can’t do cakes yet 🙂
Happy Easter-Spring-Sunny-Sunday to you as well, dear Dami! 😘
The cake looks delicious! Your grandmother must be smiling, now.
There’s another synchronicity, by the way. Not being such a good pastry maker, I created little junebugs, ladybirds from marzipan as well as little easter nests with tiny marzipan eggs. They would look great on a plate together with a piece of your Simnel cake.
Greetings to you too Steffi, we do seem to be rather synchronistic and would love to share a plate of our baking treats some day soon 🤗😘
We need to get that time-space-and-dimension travel machine going!
And to definitely let each other know should we travel near the other by more conventional means.
I guess conventional means might be more like it for the time being 🤭🤗🤗
Happy Easter, Damien! I can see it will be delicious. (K)
I can feel it will mean exercise afterwards 🤭🤭
I know what you mean!
Nigel wants to know.. “Do you share?” !!!
😂😂😂 not yet! 🤭 maybe tomorrow, if there’s some left 🤪
