torte per matrimoni



Come forse vi ricorderete ho cominciato a fare una scatola per un matrimonio.
La scatola non è ancora pronta, in questo periodo ho ricamato tanto, ma ieri pomeriggio ho preparato tre torte per il matrimonio.
Bastava una ma mi divertivo troppo. La torta a pois sarà quella di Marta: è giovane, fresca e graziosa proprio come lei. Le altre... me le terrò io!
Nel contempo ho fatto anche dei Quaresimali, tipici dolci genovesi di pasta di mandorle e zucchero a forma di fiore o losanga. Così detti perchè potevano essere consumati durante la Quaresima; infatti non contenendo burro o uova venivano considerati "di magro".
La golosità umana se le inventa tutte per barare!

wedding cakes

May be you'll remember that I begun doing a bridal box.
The box isn't ready yet, I stiched too much in the last period, but yesterday I prepared three wedding cakes.
One should have been enough but I had too much fun. The polkadot cake will be Marta's: it's young, fresh and pretty as she is. The others.... I'll take for me!
At the same time I did some Quaresimali (Quaresima = Lent) , tipical Genoise sweets made of almonds and sugar in shape of flowers or diamonds. They were said so because they could be eaten during Lent; in fact being made without butter or eggs they were considererd suitable for fasting time.
Human greediness makes up all the excuses to cheat!
