Berry flash! Cakes, with berries fresh from the garden, published in the Chef’s Handyman food blog
Not only gardeners do love berries. Who can bring Razzie Awards in connection with raspberries? Maybe someone with no taste buds. Raspberries are colorful, sweet and wonderful in taste. Blackberries do have a hard life too. How can a mobile phone be called blackberry? Fruits as brand names are popular.
Anyway, I prefer fruits and berries in desserts or dishes. The dessert is still the cherry on top after a great dinner, right!
