A slice of Opera~

I've been following Australian Masterchef Season 3...yes, South Africa is way behind!!!
We've all learnt so much, including my 3 men....
Last night I was dared to try out my own interpretation of a magnificent slice of "opera" cake created by the judges...

As I was late in catching the show, I did not get to write the recipe, therefore, here goes my version that Wes said I could never piece together.....

........ not as perfect but I'm pretty chuffed with  my version....Look out for the recipe on Friday......enjoy.....

   I  set a tray with a slice and some tea  in a nice quiet space in the warmth of the sun......

I'm linking to Tablescape Thursday for tea.....come along and join me!

  7. We’re always stressing the importance of honesty to jobseekers, especially when it comes to their CVs and interviews. But how often do recruiters stray into the world of embellishment and exaggeration in order to secure that perfect person for a role? Withholding information regarding a job or misrepresenting responsibilities and expectations will damage your reputation and lose candidates’ trust.
