  3. Lovely shots. You have more will power than I do.

    Well, actually, I've got lots of "will" power; what I need is "won't" power!

  4. I don't have a sweet tooth but I could be tempted by such perfection...

  5. That looks delicious. How could you resist that? (How'd you get this shot, then? Did someone else you know eat it?) ;))

  6. I think your photographs may be better than the treats themselves! Fewer calories, anyway.

  7. I know you like the cosy cafés! I'd be glad to taste with you a good Wood Stack and a Cappuccino à la Viennoise (or a Cappuccino à l'Italienne!!) and talk about photography!

  11. DAVID MC MCMAHON,
    thank you! :-)

    WILLOW,
    you are kidding, aren't you? ;-)

    JACOB,
    I had eaten Vitello tonnato for lunch. Made it easy to wait an hour or two until I reached Demel's where rhubarb strudel is in season right now! :-)

    VICKI LANE,
    Diglas is big in tempting one's sweet tooth! ;-)

    A BRUSH WITH COLOR,
    as I said to Jacob, I had had a plate of superb Vitello tonnato for lunch and needed a good walk before anything could tempt me, not even coffee. Here's a picture of the moment I shot the image. Thankfully, my friend had ordered one of Diglas' five tasting menue, the Wood Stack was part of it. ;-)

  12. LOUCIAO,
    taking pictures may actually consume calories, at least I hope so! ;-)

    PIETRO,
    that would be fun!
    I had neglected to tell my friend to order a Melange if she wanted an Italian cappuccino, so she got the Austrian "mit Schlag" version. She liked it, though.

    LARA,
    I am sure you know where to be tempted here! ;-)

    PUREST GREEN,
    I hope you find one at least as good as this one!

  18. Oh, this makes me hungry. I just wish I could find something like that here, sigh! I might have to go find a cookbook.

    ReplyDelete

  22. Ahh, geez. Be still my heart. These are gorgeous. Seeing such yummy food makes me really sad that I was a happy a moment ago eating my box of cracker jacks. I'm on the next plane.
