Strawberry Fool



I feel very inspired by desserts on other people's blogs!

Johanna made a gorgeous chocolate cake for her niece's birthday! She iced it into a a fairytale crown, with sweeties in place of jewels! It looked fabulous! What a treat to have on your birthday!

Joanna made some pretend fudge! Condensed milk and dark, dark chocolate. How sinful!

There was also the pear sorbet over at Anne's blog! She got the idea from 'The Perfect Scoop' by David Lebovitz. This is a book that so many people rave about, so I have ordered a copy!

I added these into my everly increasing recipe book and the first time I had a guest over for dinner , I thought, "ok, time to buy some pears!". So I had my pears at the ready and the rest of the meal planned. I had a little time to spare, so of I went around my favourite blogs and there it was!

Strawberry Fool!

And it looked heavenly! My menu was changed at the 11th hour, so I could make some strawberry fool with rhubarb goo! Check it out over at Vanessa's blog, What Geeks Eat. The rhubarb goo was lovely! I added some strawberries to it and rhubarb-hating-Graham, suddenly loved it! Of course, I was sneaky and didn't tell him what it was until later on, when he pronounced it delicious!

p.s. chocolate cake, pretend fudge and pear sorbet, coming soon!
