The Kiss of Tosca

Another culinary adventure

 Tansy can not fathom Constance’s interest in Opera but is always game to try a new recipe.

Butter, sugar and almond paste

Butter, sugar and almond paste

Any cake involving these ingredients is off to a good start as far as Tansy is concerned.

The finished cake

Tansy has outdone herself, and Constance is touched to have such a delightful confection prepared for her After-Opera snack. This evening we enjoyed  Puccini’s Tosca.  We agree with Bill Richardson of CBC Saturday Afternoon at the Opera, and love to go to live performances put on by the “always reliable, dependably exciting Pacific Opera Victoria“.

Horrors!

Horrors!

Carried away by an operatic impulse, Constance shouts “This is the kiss of Tosca” and dives into the Tosca cake.

  1. I’m new to your blog and the doings of the Hitty Family. What a fun group they are and (sh! don’t want to hurt any little wooden ladies here) Constance and Min are my favourites.
    The two Robert Raikes Hitty-type girls who run our house, because they have no faith in my own house-keeping skills ,spent a whole day with me reading your stories and posts. It was a great way of passing a cold, windy day.
    May we ask whether your Argentinian girls came completed or whether you painted them? A third member of the group is needed here.

    • Hi Jenni, nice to have you around… The Argentinian girls came unpainted, and I painted them. I really love those three, they are each so different from the other and all beautiful.

  2. OOPS! The letter ‘m’ is not working well on my keyboard – ‘Constance and in’ should read ‘Constance and Min!’

  3. HERE HERE!! BRAVI!! A fitting finish indeed for any opera experience. I have copied this recipe. Love your pictures and love you girls!
