Patisserie Valerie – Almond Franzipan Tart

There’s no point in trying to choose easy subjects to draw.


(Although, I was drawing a block of Halloumi cheese last week – a white block – and it was rather dull ; but it tasted rather fab)

Patisserie Valerie - Almond Franzipan sm

But, quite why I choose to have this Almond Franzipan Tart, at this place is anyone’s guess … All those almonds strewn across the top and the wiggly name of the cafe!

… aww, come on! who am I kidding! Almond Franzipan! Oh, boy!

I adore frangipani in all it’s forms.

(Don’t remind me about my love of frangipani mince pies – yum. What a delight at Christmas!)

I don’t particularly have a sweet tooth, that much. just sometimes, occasionally, I crave sweeter tastes.

Subject aside … Did I not look at the name of tea shop before I ordered? Those curly letters were a bit of a nightmare to draw.

(By the way, if anyone knows the name of the font, i’d be very grateful. For while it’s tricky to copy, I do like it)

    Looks great! Its a good thing I’m eating, would make me hungry for sure. 🙂 Do you eat out every day? I’d like that!


  2. It sure seems that way 🙂 I’m catching up on a few older pieces . We do out quite a bit when we’re staying away on hols, though. (This is an older piece, but I have to agree, it is rather scrummy-looking ; it’s making my mouth water, too!)

    In response to your font inquiry I found this: does this answer the question?


  4. Oh my good grief! It is, it is! Thank you, so much Steve :)I do so love a good font. My wife rolls her eyes when I identify fonts on billboards or signs if we’re out around town (Mind you, who can blame her!) Please bare in mind, I don’t bark out font names constantly by way of conversation, but i do enjoy being able to identify the odd font or two. I shall add this to my collection. Thank you 🙂
