Not Martha

Happy New Year

Above is a picture of the disastrously oozy (but very good with champagne) strawberries and whipped cream cake I improvised for the evening. I hope your evening is as joyously cozy or wildly strange or happily drunken or adventurously lost as you wish it to be!

    Lol… Yes, maybe it hasn’t got the best shape but looks soooooo yummy with those big strawberries in it!

    Just loking at it makes me grin.
    Best wishes for the New Year.

    oozy or not, it’s hard to go wrong with strawberries, cake and whipped cream, or strawberries and champagne! sounds delicious :)

    oh, this caramel recipe was posted by a friend of mine, and I thought you might like to try it. It’s incredibly easy, and not at all intimidating candy making. I made it this Christmas, but with even more cardamom.

    Oozy is never a bad thing when it comes to food. :)

    Looking forward to more of your always entertaining blog posts in the new year; happy 2009!

    First off, happy new year!

    A while back you posted a link to a ‘meat cake’ and I convinced my mom to make it today, while visiting her!

    Didn’t turn out as perfect as the one you linked to, but I added some asparagus for the candles, and used layers of ground chicken, ground beef, and ground turkey. It came out delicious. Thanks for linking to it!!

    Here are the pictures:

    Hey! There is nothing wrong with a messy cake. It looks delicious, and taste is still more important than presentation! Have a delicious new year!

  • 15 Marja // Jan 2, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    That messy cake looks absolutely delish, as well as kind of messy chic, as well. ;)

    That looks awesome! I love strawberries. Strawberry anything.

  • 17 Marcie // Jan 3, 2009 at 7:32 am

    Your cake reminds me of Alice in Wonderland! It might inspire me to make one of my own this afternoon!

  • 18 Anjali // Jan 4, 2009 at 9:15 am

    Hey, that looks just like the traditional “Christmas cake” eaten in Japan on Christmas Eve — my favorite cake ever, incidentally. Yum!

  • 19 Enna // Jan 4, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    Anything is good with champagne. Happy New Year.

    You cake is beautiful to me. There is no traffic cop in your mouth – all goes down the same way. Stress less and have more fun – my mantra for 2009. Happy New Year to you!
