tea and cake



A few days ago I was inspired by Anna (love her blog!) to make this cake. I had fresh cherries on hand, so I used those instead of raspberries. And I bought a cherry pitter from the ad-OR-able kitchen shop on my street corner. Pitting cherries with one of those gadgets is so fun! And what do you know, my cake came out of the oven just in time for some surprise company.

I so want a cherry pitter! I have a quart of fresh ones in the fridge and this would cut the time it takes to eat them in half. such fun!

Just have to tell you, your apartment does a fantastic job of keeping the city outside. What a lovely little world you've made in there.

I love my cherry pitter. And my apple corer. Yes, they each only really do one thing, but it's so much faster with the correct tool. ;)

I've been pitting cherries with my largest pastry tip, and I can't say it's been fun. I'm not convinced I would enjoy it any more w/ a special gadget, though. Seedless cherries?

i have very ripe cherries that need to be utilized. this would make a perfect birthday cake to take to the beach.

Oooh,
this looks like a good cake.
It looks similar to one that Lena had on her blog.
I totally don't need to make this...because for some weird reason I've been craving sweets lately, and I've gained about 3 lbs. My nurse friends at work think it's because my body is preparing itself (this my be TMI) to get preggers!

Oh, and I love your tins, and Anna's blog is great!

I love the Brooklyn Kitchen! Partly because I love kitchen goods and Pyrex, and partly because it's owned by my former professor, Harry, who has an awesome tattoo of a hinge in his elbow, and while he worked at my college, a handlebar mustache as well. There's a lot to love....

You, apron and potholder clad, "Why hello! I just whipped up a little something, do have some cake, won't you?!"

Charmant!
