Snowballs Fit To Eat
Let us eat snow!
it's March already.
Wish Upon A Cake Stand?
My imagination knows
a perfect cup
of Viennese Mélange
is all I need,
and perchance to dream ...

I can't bear to click further today, as your first photo has nearly made me dribble all over the keyboard!ReplyDelete
I'll trade my coffee in on a chocolate.ReplyDelete
What an imaginative and beautifully constructed post!ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying a nice after lunch coffee right now but alas! not a meringue or macaroon in sight.ReplyDelete
I have never tried Demel's snowballs, but I had a great aunt who would make them. The pastry dough was cut into strips and expertly woven into a ball around a soup ladle, and then immersed into hot fat in a high pot. We ate them dusted with powdered sugar. A truly heavenly confection, the fried dough melting on your tongue. Maybe I should try one at Demel's, one day, share it with a friend, maybe.
Please pardon me, Jinksy, I discovered the typo just as I was sending the comment off.ReplyDelete
no coffee at all? ;-)
thank you! :-)
come to think of it, I should really not try to relax by creating at 6pm a new post about coffee and sweets and nothing to nosh around the house! ;-)
Sweet snowballs with a Viennese Melange......after a very, very busy day; even at ten tonight... it would be the greatest joy....!ReplyDelete
WONDERFUL inviting PHOTOGRPHY; Cara Merisi!!!
Ciao ciao elvira
Oh, I must run to Demel to see the Easter treats.ReplyDelete
Do you ever do Fan Meet-n-Greets? I've been following your photo blog since before we relocated here in Vienna and continue to follow. We're only stationed here for 1 year and we leave in July. Your blog will serve as a daily dose of this place that I've fallen head over heels in love with. I'm a huge fan.
I am going to Demel tomorrow morning!!! :)ReplyDelete
The dessert and coffee looks so great. I am now hungry for something sweet.ReplyDelete
wonderful...but where does the phrase perchance to dream come from...thats really bugging me now...ReplyDelete
FFF -- perchance to dream is from Hamlet's To be or not to be' soliloquy.(Old English teacher here)ReplyDelete
Oo,those snowballs look good! And that chocolate duckie.ReplyDelete
Yum! I am off of dairy and looking at that creamy cup of bliss is killing me! And I think I need a cookie.ReplyDelete
Great pictures. Sigh...
mille grazie, Elvira! :-)
this is the first time that I hear about Fan Meet-n-Greets! I am glad you are enjoying your stay here, it is a wonderful place indeed.
I could almost become envious! ;-)
L. D. Burgus,
I hope you found something sweet! ;-)
Fab, feisty and fifty.,
Vicki has already answered your question,
I hope you read it before "perchance to dream" kept you from falling asleep! ;-)
thank you! :-)
Viennese Duck instead of a Peking one! _=
oh, that is tough!
POur moi, coffee, patisserie and chocolateReplyDelete
My father has asked to go to Vienna. Hopefully this fall I'll be sitting at Demel's with treats (and a cappuccino, of course) that I've only been dreaming about.ReplyDelete
