San-san

Wrapped up in Marzipan

this ever special bake

isn’t a mince-pie

that’s something that isn’t a flan

but definitely what you would call a cake

filled with fruit that’s full of flavour

and perfect for all the family to try

a pudding that everyone will savour

#Cake #Marzipan #Sweet #Battenburg #Sponge #Pudding #Jam

Built like

a sponge colossus

to many – a

teatime snack to

enjoy just after your chops and vegetables

now how much you have is down to you

but then again – its a question of how much sponge

unless of course, you don’t like Marzipan

reactions to this cake – understandable

“great!  can we have one more slice please ?”

Give your love a sweet Valentine invitation

on a piece of rice paper parchment

send it with hand picked roses

made from flavoured marzipan

and those vegetables she doesn’t like on her salad

will taste o so much sweeter when she finds they’re strawberries

Admittedly, I like Almonds….

Like – when they’re scattered liberally over a bakewell sponge or

Made in to powder, and mixed with other ingredients for marzipan

Overall, the taste is really great in a cake

Nutty and sweet – from the seed that escapes from that

Delicately pitted light brown casing

Some would say – they’re delicious! (especially in chocolate!)

A thought by Inkdrop (BK) for the Inkwell

 

Am I looking at the real thing here?

Really tasty treats, chemically constructed,

Taken by the artisan and transformed.

It looks like the real thing – and tastes like it, but

Fooled you would be – for there’s no real fruit in that cake

In fact, it’s fruits are mostly almond paste – marzipan

Combined with apple flavouring….

If you looked beyond the con – you would eat it all the same

As it sits in the centre of the dinner table

Looks, of course – are deceptive….
