Food Photo Day

Diptych - Strawberries

I know it’s not the season for strawberries in our northern hemisphere, but sometimes I just love to look at summery food to feel transported back to warm days and evenings on the balcony.

My birthday being in late April, my grandmother used to make the first strawberry cake of the year for me. My grandmother has been gone for a long while now, but every birthday when I get up in the morning my first thought goes to her and her strawberry cake.

The little cakes you see here are a variation of the Bottomless Cheesecake I made in the early days of this blog. I made it into little Bottomless Chocolate & Almond Cheesecakes two years ago and liked that version very much.

Maybe I should start making these as my own birthday cake tradition.
