Yup they’re still there! I remember Sea Side Patisserie back to when I was a kid in Abu Dhabi, and dad would get these pastries for us on really rare or deserving occasions as they were the best in town – Tourist Club, Abu Dhabi. Must visit and try their other specialities too: croissants, biscuits, arabic sweets & the famous sweetened / colored almonds.
Sorry…I’ve been busy for over a month..but indeed I’ve tasted and enjoyed a lot of christmas goodies including a bit of this wedding cake…which was my cousin’s wedding during Christmas week in the beautiful and serene state of Goa. They just recently celebrated their one month’s wedding anniversary today..how cute is that? Terence & Elizabeth…have a wonderful married life!
Some people make plum cakes look so simple! I stepped into my Aunt Joyce’s place to take a pic of her famous Bibinca..However since it was just baked and crisply hot, it couldn’t be sliced for the much required layers. But fortunately for me, I didn’t go back disappointed as there were several other goodies already on display. I took a shot of the neatly iced Christmas Plum Cake with the cute marzipan snowman.
Watch this space for more..
Good morning guys! Sorry if I was a bit shaky in this photograph..yesterday I was carrying an overloaded knapsack on my way home and stopped to remove loose change from it at the bakery. When I swung (not sure if I swung makeself or the bag now), I sprained my back muscles a bit…or maybe too much not sure. Lol! I could barely bend or sleep last night, and I seemed to need a stand support while taking the picture, instead of the camera…guess I won’t be able to enjoy walking tonight 😦
Anyways, something about the picture: Its simple nut-flavored (70% almonds, 30% cashews) marzipan, formed and colored in various moulds. Since they are quite sticky to touch, icing sugar had to be dusted over it most of the time. Its already the 19th, and there’s still a lot more to prepare – including cakes, truffles and toffee! Will keep you posted.
