Accompagné d'Edith Piaf..Quoi de mieux?
Such a pretty pretty song..
Here in QC.. not mieux..but blue blessings for sure~
Saved and pressed pansies..violas..and Forget~ Me ~Nots..
Even at the beginning of the season ..there are enough blooms to press to make a tray..don't forget some greenery..
These are the trays I mentioned..
You try and find vintage trays..remove the images they have..and replace with your own words and blooms~
Simply cut white paper.. to the size of the glass.. make an arragement of flowers.. white glue them on..and add verse..
They are great for toiletries..jewelry.. and they make very personal sweet gifts.
You just have to get lucky and find the old trays that have glass tops~
Just thought I would tell you so that you can start gathering your blooms:)
And appreciating your bluems.♥
For the edible part ..I made little almond cakes in my Cannelés molds~
I was reminded of them.. very recently..but instead of cannelés..picked Almond cakes..
Recipe found on Pinterest but it did not lead to a blog..nor to a method of anything..Just the recipe~
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 free range egg..mine was not..
1 1/2 tsps almond extract
2/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp cinnmon
8 tbsps melted butter..
That was it..
So..Preheat oven to 350 degrees F..
I used my silicone (8 spots..)cannelés mold
and one small rectangular loaf..maybe 5 inches by 3 inches..
I added the sugar to the melted butter then the egg..milk ..flavoring..I mixed my dry ings and added to the wet and mixed until well combined..
The cannelés molds took ap 35 mins..the rect loaf just a couple of minutes more~
Very Good..easy peasy~
Take care..Bon Weekend~
It was 90 degrees F today..here in QC~
Wonder what the weekend will be like?
