Food photography roundup

I thought it was time for one of these. I have been making lots of lovely food recently, but not taking so many photos because of the early nights unfortunately.

Zimtbaellchen (cinammon balls). They were supposed to be Zimtsterne (cinammon stars, a traditional German Christmas thing) but as I said on Sunday, I can’t seem to make these myself! This time the dough was too runny and it was impossible to cut the shapes out. Tasted yum though!

Tarte tatin, pre-pastry

    I have no idea what tiger duck cake is, but it almost looks to adorable to eat. 🙂

    Blimey, move over, Nigella! Everything looks absolutely delicious!!! Plus, I love the idea of cinnamon balls – it's the taste that matters and not so much the shape…

    Wow, if I could make food that tastes as good as this looks, my husband would come home from work extra early just because of anticipation! Poor guy, hes such a foodie and he married an only so-so cook;)

    Das sind ja eher Zimttaler als Bällchen. Hab der Nelly letzte Woche meine/ihre ausstecher und so ein Kinderbackbuch was ich ihr mal stibitzt habe mitgebracht da sie auch mal backen wollte dieses Jahr und da ich wohl keine Zeit habe. Frag sie doch einfach ob sie dir das Zimtsterne Rezept einscannt und mailt das funktioniert nämlich 100% hab ich ja schon mehrmals ausgetestet.
    Und die Tigerente ist cool aber ich hötte vieleicht Schokoladengus benutzt 🙂
    Die anderen Essen sehen auch alle sehr lecker aus, besonders der Mangosalat. Fas des im Salat Petersilie und KEIN Korianda ist würde mich das Rezept interessieren.
    Ach ja und ein Rezept für Zimtbällchen findest du übrigens hier:

    Great, Tigerentenkekse! How did you make them? Did you use a cutter (where from?) or shape them yourself?

  • Veshoevius 10 December 2010, 9:37 pm

    mmmm – looks good – especially the tarte tartin!!

  • Lorena 22 December 2010, 5:57 pm

    onion pie….
