Patisserie Valerie – Almond Franzipan TartPosted: August 13, 2014
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)
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)
