I was sitting on our terrace drinking tea, looking at the beautiful sunset this charming place
the Garda Lake offers us almost every day.
I'm so greatful living here!! :)
It is close to Easter and Ester decorations is to be done...
why not start with the fireplace.
I have used English Ivy (Hedera Helix Variegata)
as base and added home made polystyrene eggs made with Decoupage technique,
and others are covered with coloured rice paper (very quick method)
Other eggs are in plastic and bought.
in the ceiling I hang one big egg made in
|papier-mâché||(sculpture material: soaked paper strips)|
gift from my Mother-in Law, Iris.
What I was eating together with the tea?
well, Alice's Regina Cookies, vegan of course :)
Regina Cookies (vegan)
250gr of flour
75gr of sugar
100ml of milk (soy)
30gr of maize or rice oil
1 pinch of salt
5gr of baker's ammonia
80gr of sesame seed
mix the flour with the baker's ammonia.
then add the sugar and the salt. mix well, and add the liquid.
it should come out rather sticky, but that is right.
make small sausages out of the dough and roll in the sesame seeds.
put on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
bake in a hot oven: 200°C for 25min
the ammonia will stink terrible while baking, but don't worry that's normal.
whrn the cookies are completaley cooled no smell or taste will remain.
remember to stop by at
Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch to see all other tablescapers :)
