SaltwaterThank you very much.

I used the glaze technique;
many "layers" of transparent colours.
​It gives depth to the painting. :-)

alitta2Looks nice! I guess I've already heard of these cakes during a French class yet in high school, when we learnt about the Alsace-Lorraine region.

alitta2Yeah, unfortunately :D The same was with Macaron, that I still haven't tried yet :( 
However, the Brioche is very common at us, especially the one with sugar on its top, and sometimes the one with poppy seeds on it.

TeeJay87Some time ago, I tried this kind of sweets when they were sold at local supermarket.

People from Lorraine surely know, how to bake good pastry, don't they ? :)

MorpherFantastic shading and highlights! I've never heard of, nor have tried Madeleines before. They look really good just based on you pic of them alone.

SaltwaterMaybe next trend!  LOL

Macarons were totally unknown in the US.
Then some girls from films, (like Sex in the city) stuffed themselves with macarons, day in, day out.
And then it was the new trendy desert....  :D

luotakuluIf you look at this drawing at a farther view, you'd think it was a photo. Great drawing, and coloring, Saltwater!

Also, your new quest is making us all hungry with your yummy artwork,  right?

SaltwaterSorry for making you hungry, LOL

Next time, would you prefer a plate of ​cauliflower, ​collards , kale, spinach, and broccoli?   ;-)  :D
