lemon cake

"You have filled my tea with lumps of sugar, and though I asked most distinctly for bread and butter, you have given me cake. I am known for the gentleness of my disposition, and the extraordinary sweetness of my nature, but I warn you, Miss Cardew, you may go too far."  
Oscar Wilde (The Importance of Being Earnest)


  1. lemon cake
    would fit perfect with our summery weather!

    today I bought different jams
    for the scones to make
    or shall I make a chocolat cake first?

  2. Dearest Jasmin,
    first, thank you so much for your lovely comments! I've been very surprised finding your thoughts at different places at the Rose.

    And: It bothers me I'm late with the stamps and the doilies...I've purchased at auction some nice pieces weeks ago. So, I make a term with me and the German federal Post Office for next monday!

    Then: Lemon cake? Never sampled... But I know the movie! Fantastic The King's Speech-actor Colin Firth...did you see Girl With The Pearl Earring, Painter Vermeer?

    See you tomorrow with a DREAM at woolfy Nadine?

    x Ariane

    I love lemon cake, somehow it's better than chocolate.

  4. oh i love this piece of text.
    and the lemoncake is probably lovely...

    i just discovered that lemonjuice is a great substitute for deodorant! here comes the hippie tips!

  5. Ariane, it is always a pleasure. Don't worry about being late with anything, I am late with everything here, including stamps for you too.
    And I love that film, i must read the book!

    Emma, there was a blogger crash yesterday wasn't there? Bit scary, i've lost treasured comments too..... i love lemon cake, but for me chocolate is supreme.
