White strawberry and paper cake....

One of my favorite summer treats are strawberries...I mean red strawberries. So when I saw these white strawberries on some web sites, it intrigued me a lot. Oh dear...white strawberries ? Did they reach you in your part of the world ? They're actually called pineberries as they are mixed strawberry and pineapple and originate from Southern America. To sum it up, they look like red strawberries dipped in white fondant and taste like pineapple...
Mmmm.....it leaves perplex....
Anyway, this morning I inquired about their upcoming apparition in Spain but until now they are only sold in England. God save the strawberry !
On the other imaginary food front, I resumed my series of paper cake toppers in shape of a cake. They're meant to be placed on top of a wedding cake or as adornment on the sweet table or as centerpiece.

Have a wonderful week end !

Intriguing strawberries. They look a bit like they were doused in bleach, but I would love to taste them. Your flowered cake topper makes me wish I was getting married again (oh, to the same husband)...and Spain would be the perfect location! A lovely weekend to you, Lala.

Pineberries....how strange! In my opinion if it isn't broken, don't fix it!

Your cake toppers are absolutely gorgeous.

Wow those pineberries are amazing.
They certainly look lovely, but I think I would feel cheated if they didn't taste of strawberries, but you could have fun with dinner guest if you served them.

I love the cake topper, it's wonderful. You could fill them with chocolate as well they are so pretty.

much love

Lala- the strawberries look alien or ill but intriguing...Your cake looks very nearly delicious and i would have one of those if I ever got married...again...I mean If I really liked the idea, at the moment I am not on great terms with the idea of marriage... your cakes would be nice for birthdays! Or for just waking up in the morning and feeling special.

Well,Les fraise sont aux couleurs de la Suisse, pas vrai ? Le drapeau rouge à croix blanche.
Pourvu que le croisement soit *naturel*. Voila un *objet * qui devrait vous inspirer pour vos arrangements de mariage !!!
Une expo en vue, avec en écrin, un thème : L'origine des fruits et légumes. Colliers verts, légumes verts. Les photos, presque toute prise au marché de Barbès, à Paris.

Un bonjour de Lausanne.

Je n'avais jamais entendu parler de ces fraises blanches ...
Ici en Provence, je commence à manger des gariguettes et elles sont merveilleuses. Aubagne est une grosse région productrice de fraises

Red Stawberries are considered a Winter fruit and delicious on a Pavlova!
I guess White Strawbs are due to Genetic Engineering...

Kristin said...

Oh, I agree with you! Red strawberries! Think we should leave nature the way it is! It does look kind of strange...? Well, Happy Saturday!!

Joyful said...

Oh my! Those berries look divine. They haven't reached my part of the world yet unless they are in only some stores. I will keep my eyes open for them.

nunca vi morangos brancos por aqui.muito menos com gosto de abacaxi.ai, que estranha essa transmutação...aqui, os morangos vermelhos normais aparecem bastante brancos quando estão cheios de agrotóxicos.gostei de saber.
beijos

Lala,
Those strawberries are so intriguing, I want to try one! And your cake topper is beautiful, it reminds me of the paper flower hats that Chanel did a while ago...just beautiful!
I hope that spring has sprung for you and you are enjoying some sunshine and busy planning weddings...
