Red roses in the snow

Yesterday, in the car on our way to the Winter Nights at Bokrijk, I was listening to Radio 2 ’s ‘1000 klassiekers’, the radio station’s annual list of the ultimate classic songs. And at number 546 there it was: the wonderful 1975 classic by Belgian singer Marva called ‘Rode rozen in de sneeuw’ (Red roses in the snow). My inspiration to bake these lovely apple roses. 🙂

Pavlova Heaven

I’ve been wanting to try and make a Pavlova for a really long time. The recipe I tried today I found on the Allerhande website and made me feel pretty confident. 😉
This website is always a good source to find easy recipes. I adjusted it slightly (meaning less sugar) and I added my own little touch (enter the lemon curd!).
