Plum decorate your coffee table...

Hello Everyone,

As you all know, decoration on my blog is not limited to interiors alone. Here's something to boost your spirit and your taste buds.

This is a recipe I was wanting to try for a very long time, ever since I saw this in a German Magazine. Please excuse me as I do not remember the name of the magazine. Recipe courtesy goes to this Magazine without doubt.
Fresh Plums ready to turn into Roses

Thinly cut plum slices

The ready to use pastry sheet cut into strips

I glazed the sheet with honey and arranged the plum slices and simply rolled it to form a flower

The first flower turned out as expected and my excitement grew...

So did the second one...
I was not worried about the precision of the slices....its okay if you are not accurate, just try to conceal it

And quickly there were many....

A honey glaze adds sweetness to these otherwise sour slices and also makes them look shiny. It so reminded me of the dew drops.

All set and ready to be baked

The process of baking extracts the juices of the plum and this adds a hint of colour like that of a double coloured rose.

The effect of glazing opens up the plum slices like petals

Sitting on my dessert a bowl of floating roses.

A dash of cinnamon and icing sugar with cups of hot coffee.

Looks and tastes Yumm !!!

Do let me know if these pictures have inspired you enough to try !!!!!
