Sunday Sketches (Strawberry Sponge Cake)


We've a busy weekend as it is Father's Day. Michael plans to have breakfast with the youngest son and then in the afternoon, a cook-out with everyone to celebrate. It's extra-special this year as my step-daughter's husband will be enjoying his very first Father's Day with beautiful 8-month old twins!!

This quick illustration came about due to a photo Michael forwarded to me of a scrumptious looking Strawberry Victoria Sponge cake packed with cream. We had a delicious one made for our summer English Tea Party last weekend so wasn't aware he was wanting another one! In lieu of another real cake, I sketched out this darling guy who's about to enjoy his personal sponge cake for him instead. :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! I'll catch up later in the evening. Happy SS!

  4. my mouth waters at the thought of such a delicacy and I wish you and your family the most delightful Father's Day. My family will be together and we too will eat foolishly, laugh and share the love we have for each other. We don't need an excuse to be this way, but it is fun to celebrate our Fathers who deserve our respect and recognition. Happy Father's Day, Alexandra.

  10. I love it! Your illustration inspired Sofie and I to make a smaller, edible version last night using crystalized ginger cupcakes for two, sans frosting, and topping them with fresh strawberries from our garden and whipped cream! Thanks for the idea! :)

  12. I just wanted to send you a thank you for hosting this at blog co-op. I'm not very consistent with posting but I'll try to quiet the little monkey that whispers in my ear "who's going to read it anyways" etc. I just need to keep practicing, right?
