The Colour Purple

That's sponge cake being soaked in black currant syrup in preparation for a trifle of sorts. It was later combined with vanilla custard to which some rose syrup was added. My uncle, who has a great sweet tooth, makes these puddings with whatever he has at hand.

I didn't buy any! I recognised the photo op very early!

Yesterday I missed putting out a photo. I forgot, and then I was too sick and tired to bother. I'd better confess to it before I give in to the temptation to put up some picture or the other that is supposed to be yesterday's.

An Artist's Hand

A dessert I made for my friends V and V who came over to spend a morning with me! That's frozen biscuits and ice-cream with chocolate sauce.
