On the road again…. Just can’t wait to get home again! :-)
I’m up here this morning.
Why? I’ll tell you all about it on Sunday when I get home. Right now, I’m going to open Fiesta Friday #30. The party must go on, you hear, with or without yours truly.
Margy @La Petite Casserole will party with you until I can join in. She’s my solo co-host this week since she’s obviously a host extraordinaire. She will take very good care of you!
Let’s take a look at last fiesta’s features first before we party, shall we?
Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes from Michelle @Girrafes Can Bake. In Selma’s words, “Totally and utterly gorgeous!! Words fail me – Michelle needs to apply for GBBO immediately!”
Michelle, I saw the cupcakes and I read Ferrero Rocher and I yelled, “Gimme, gimme, gimme!” Obviously, you didn’t hear me from across the pond. So I’m going to try once again, ” MICHELLE! GIMME, GIMME, GIMME!” Waiting now, Michelle… :-)
Vanilla Ombre Rose Birthday Cake from Katkapow @Resting Dough. In Jhuls’ words, “I bet everyone fell in love with this cake – the colors are so lovely. Not only the icing roses have different colors, but also the cake itself. If I am inside a bakeshop and looking for something very nice to give as a gift, I would not take a second thought – I’d take this.”
In Selma’s words, “Stunning cake, inside and out! And what a great friend she is! I loved reading about the cake trials and would have loved to have seen more photos of the tea party, too.”
I only have one word for you, Kat! OMG! And WOW! Okay, two words. Rented kitchen… 2 days of baking… Your ombre cake is worthy to be any baker’s magnum opus!
Cooking My Way Around The Web from Ngan @Ngan Made It. I love this post, Ngan! You’ve made so many of our blogger friends very happy by trying their recipes and giving them feedback. You are such a dear! I just adore you and your style. <3
Summer celebration Salad from Julianna @Foodie On Board. In Jhuls’ words, “Considering that summer months will soon bid their goodbye, I know everyone would want to spend the last moments of summer with fabulous summer recipes and this salad [fits the bill]. It should definitely be on the table. It’s a delicious, healthy, and beautiful salad!”
In Selma’s words, “Julianna’s salad is absolutely glorious-looking with a really interesting dressing, too.”
As for me, looking at that salad makes me feel very happy somehow! I want to gobble it up and taste its vibrancy so I can keep summer’s brightness going forever. Just look at the colors! Doesn’t this salad prove that we eat with our eyes first? Who would be able to resist it?
Tricolor Cardamom & Saffron Sorbet from Violets & Vanilla. We had quite a few entries celebrating India’s Independence Day and this one really caught my attention. Well, hello, it’s a sorbet! Summer and sorbet go together. Besides it’s a coconut sorbet. With cardamom and saffron. And it’s tricolor, representing the colors of India’s flag. Sounds just so, so lovely!
Alrighty, it’s time to party, pretty! Okay, I was just trying to rhyme, but it really is time to party, sweetie! Geez Louise! It’s barely 7 am, I’m in my hotel room, and I’ve been up all night sharing a pizza and some cheap zinfandel (which surprisingly went really well with the pizza) with a few lovely people, so bear with me, please.
