Behind the Scenes at Demel's

Pastry Fairies Painting Bunnies
Why else do you think that Demel's
Only a few blocks from the
Vienna University of Applied Arts?

Edible Silver
Sugar pearls
Sealed in a bottle
Awaiting their precious moment

Demel's Granny Childcare
The real reason behind
Humpty Dumpty's great fall:
One can take care
Of an unruly child only so much
While drinking coffee!

Behind Chocolate Bars
Unhappy fowl?
Not so, according to Dickens'
"Tales of Two Chickens"!

A-Tisket. A-Tasket
A green androyal blue yellow basketbox
With a chocolate Ducky
Looking like trouble!

Why Do I Know All This?
For a bird of the air
carried the voice,
and that which hath wings
does tell the matter!

Editor's Note:
Demel's running assmoothDemelishly
As always,
A Pastry Perpetuum Mobile
If there ever was one.

"All's Well
That Ends Well
