Watercolor Desert

I am so happy to start today my collaboration with Angi Pauly, a talented artist with a vivid imagination. Today's artwork was originally designed for one of Angi's friend in Austria using watercolor and pencil... Hope you enjoy this little story!

Having kitchen helpers has always been a blessing for Baya when dealing with large events at the kingdom. On the eve of the wedding of the fae king, she was in commissioned to create a desert so memorable that fairies would be talking about it for a long time.

“Baya, here are the freshest and finest lingonberries in the forest” Pauli said as he handed her the delicious tangy red berry he had carried from the deep forest. They had brought hundreds of the precious fruits, which were rumored to be the favorite of the king’s future wife. 

"The red color of the fruit will symbolize their love" Baya told Pauli and Kip as she remembered the feelings she had seen for the beautiful girl in her monarch's eyes, the girl who stole the hearts of the people. "This is a fine day" she said to them. She has brought out king back to life, back into everyone's favor, and color has returned to our fair country".

She thought of macarons flavored with the juice of the passion red fruit filled with a thick layer of lingonberry jam. The cloud like desert would symbolize the lightness of heart of the couple, and its sweetness would represent Baya's wishes for the future of the couple.

"Hurry up, we have much to do and little time to waste" she said, as her helpful friends rushed the sugar, almonds, eggs and vanilla into the kitchen, so Baya could start with the preparation of the much awaited treats. 

The king's wedding was beautifully decorated with thousands of flowers that fell from the sky as if they were rain drops. The attendants laughed and danced while they sipped the best beverages in the realm. And Baya's desert marked the sweet beginning to a time of prosperity for the whole kingdom.

Have a great weekend!
