Costa – Mini Victoria SpongePosted: August 17, 2014
There’s a certain amount of delight that can be had from miniature things.
Today I indulged my sweet tooth (Which is not very well developed I have to admit!)
I used to feast on puddings whenever we dined out. I think it stemmed from puddings being a particular treat when I was younger. They seemed to be a scarce commodity at home and we certainly didn’t dine out as much. This is as much from a change of culture in western society rather than purely economic changes at home. Once I was earning my own money, and making my own culinary choices, puddings seemed to rise up in their importance.
I remember a distinct phase, attending college, where puddings ended every meal. I enjoyed baking my own cakes. And sharing them, I hasten to add.
Now, not so much. That brief spat of sweet toothedness seems to have given way to a greater appreciation of the savoury.
So, today’s choice was a little unusual, in that I don’t normally choose to have a cake.
But, as I wrote on my sketch – it was a mini cake … and so darned cute! Barely a couple of mouthfuls really.
(Tune in tomorrow for a set of three mini-burgers and further thoughts on miniature food)
