Somewhere over the Rainbow,
in a Viennese Kitchen

Somewhere over the Rainbow
halfway to Emerald City,
Dorothy's solar vehicle
got stuck at the edge of the
Yellow Brick Road

Baking a rainbow cake

  1. Blogger has introduced "a completely new, streamlined blogging experience" (their words, not mine!).

    How is this working for you?

    I am extremely frustrated and seriously contemplating to take this as a sign that more than six yours of blogging may just be enough and to call it quits.

  2. is them COOKIES?
    they look like cookies to me or am I hungry...ahem
    Sweet what ever it is.

    WHAT R U saying?
    I like the new fine for moi
    just do it
    I'll help you

  3. Paris Breakfast:
    Carol, this are cake layers. My daughter and I baked them last night. They are to be layered, filled with white chocolate and whipped cream, to create a rainbow experience when you cut into it.

    Blogger: Thank you! Right now, I am not ready.

  4. P.S. to my first comments:
    I meant "after six years of blogging" - sometimes my brain gets confused and simply spells in whatever language it feels like. ;-)

  5. LOL. Cool image. I tell you, things like that always fire my imagination. It seems so simple but it does.

  6. This is a wonderful image.

  7. ... and here is an appropriate soundtrack courtesy of Kermit

    P.S. quit? Noooooo!!! I need my virtual coffee in Vienna and Venice in my life and the view of the world through your lens.

  8. Great photo! I want a slice of this rainbow cake!!! Where can I get it?

  9. The colors are magnificent!

  10. OH I agree with Zosia-you must just get through it somehow for all of us out here who wait with great anticipation of your next great post and/or next great photo! Oh do not say that you would even dream of ending this.. please..

  11. Charles Gramlich,
    I am still guessing if your were referring to the picture or to my Blogger lament. ;-)

    L.D. Burgus,
    thank you! :-)

    thank you for reminding me of this beautiful song, I know it well. Makes me almost wistful, thinking of the time when my children were small and I had a perfect excuse - duty! - to sit with them and watch Sesame Street. I loved it!

    "Rainbows are visions, but only illusions ..." life in general. ;-)

  12. Vreni,
    last night, somewhere in the 6th District! ;-)
    It was my very arty - but wanting to become a scientist - daughter's birthday wish, a Rainbow Cake (I selected that link, out of many, because I love those images of a mother baking the cake with her children).

  13. step away from the railing..
    I mean the DELETE BUTTON!

  14. Marilyn,
    thank you! I was quite relieved that the food colours worked so well at first try. ;-)

    I confess that more than once did I continue blogging because of you all who keep visiting and commenting and make it worthwhile beyond my own vanity.

  15. Paris Breakfasts,
    I may feel like I am at the end of my tether, blog-technic-wise, but I won't hit the delete button, that's for sure. ;-)

  16. Oh, Merisi, each looks so scrumptious.

    Would our pleas and tears convince you to put up with this new blogger? We would be infinitely sad if you departed the premises, not to mention the fact that my visual excapes into nirvana would end.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
