Cherries and Sachertorten

Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries?

The pattissiers at Demel's beg to differ!

And add their own sweet interpretion

Cherries + chocolate!

They also offer another vision, life as a long row of Sachertorten!

They work hard

Squeeze hard

Til the very last drop

And treat it tenderly.
(Am I a little sappy today?
It's spring,
when even the sappy get philosophical!

  1. Nice pictures.. Just one query here.

    Do they allow people to go in & click when they are at work ?

  2. Did you catch him licking his fingers at all?

  3. @ Cream - actually that thought came to well...if not him...can we lick??
    I hope you saved a pc for me - cherry one pls.

  4. @ cuckoo:
    No, you cannot go into the kitchen proper, unfortunately. :-(
    @ cream
    Never once have I seen anybody lick a finger or do anything improperly. They have amazing control of their hands. And I really should have filmed, he was moving so fast up and down that line, working so precisely and at a steady pace. I have nothing but the highest respect of their craft.
    That cherry cake was in a very dark corner, but I liked those cherries so much (no flash allowed there, not that I ever use one anyway - one of the reasons I like my little Sony is her high tolerance for low available light).
    @ bendtherulz:
    You are welcome to it, just click ahead and lick (so to speak *g*), and have a piece of cake, too! :-°)
