  6. Maybe it didn’t come out as the best cake around but those spoons look so appetizing that I had to remember I’m on diet.

    Happy Bday Jill!

    I’m sure it was still tasty! I have found that it’s often the sloppiest cakes that taste the best… but it probably has to do with all the love the baker put into them :)

    Mmmm but with a spoon as chocolaty and delicious looking as that I’m sure it tasted great!!
    I had a similar incident with chocolate cake on monday…there were tears, but I still posted a picture at

    Oh I would just take the batter right off the spoon and place a birthday candle right in the middle of it! It is the wishes for a great birthday and big sparkly smiles that matter for a birthday. Hope it was great for Jill.

    Also, where did you learn photography? It always takes my breath away. Any pointers/books/websites I would be so grateful if you could offer any.

  11. I’m sure it was perfect… That picture is full of promises!

    Las cucharitas rechupeteadas nos dien que estaba bien rico. Son las 7 menos cuarto y yo también he chupado la cuchara de la izquierda en la pantalla. Delicioso. Y la foto muy significativa.

    Oops..Happy Belated Birthday to Jill!
    I am sure the cake tasted delicious!

  31. That looks like the perfect anecdote to all the meat cooking I’ve been doing at school (I’m a culinary school student).

    And, of course, the cook gets to lick the spoon!

    happy (late) birthday to jill! sorry it did not come out the way you had planned, but lovely all the same…i am sure of that.

    Thank you, the Rhubarb and vanilla tart recipe was awesome and a became a great jumping off point for a whole menu. I’ve trained as a chef and as an artist and last week opened a temporary fine-dining restaurant in an art gallery in Devon, England. The tart featured on the menu minus the crumble topping, too much after 6 prior courses i felt, and was loved by all.
    P.S. Love the blog, the pictures are always graceful, beautiful.
