Spongy semolina cake
toothsome lemon kiss
rich, orange-blossom syrup
gold-kissed and fragrant
So buttery sweet
Twenty-second Epulaeryu!
Ok, I know there are two variants of this cake, the Turkish one and the Greek one.
I've only ever had this once (the Greek one) and it was really lovely!
I'll try the Turkish one eventually!

Hazelnuts, pistachios,
cashews, dried cherries
Honeyed-almonds, crunch
So toothsome
Eighteenth Epulaeryu! ^-^
Been a while since I had some good nougat, I love when they add more dried fruits such as apricots. They're my favourite.
My sweet-tooth continues to rage, lool!

the rose's water

chewy, light
Seventeenth Epulaeryu! ^-^
I LOVE Turkish Delight, oh my gosh!
Mainly because of one of my favourite books, The Chronicles of Narnia, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe! Classic!
It's because of both the book and film that I first tried it!

Rich 5d
He sits on the roof
Legs numb
Eyelids shut
Mind open.
The sun drops and rises within the time it takes for a single smile to bend his adolescent cheekbones
The wind comes and goes, as affectionate as the lover he once had
in a dream.
Planets rotate and so do perspectives
His misery is truly ephemeral
Even though he may not know it yet.

  I watch you from afar
my greatest love in argent-kissed armour
He who dreamed of being greater than
a mere fighter, stronger that a solider,
wiser than the Kings who pass and come
He who is born with an angel's allure,
he who unites all from all walks of life
I feel your vesper gaze upon me,
ambitious, charming, wise and poignant
With a charisma, a light that outshines the
very sun, a heart warmer than gold
and softer than cotton.
I pray you will succeed
That you will find your way
For no matter how far you wonder,
and how I think of you in yonder
I know in my heart,
You will return to me once more...  

Something a lil different.
I think I'm gonna take a short break from the Epulaeryus lol.
Don't worry! I got more coming, it's just I need to gather my thoughts!
My sweet tooth is strong and raging!

Smooth vanilla pastry cream
Pale-yellow, so rich

gently spread
Sixteenth Epulaeryu! ^-^
Freshly made eclair are the best!

Who's with me!

Dessert of decadent dreams
Light, rich and creamy
Chocolates that melt in your mouth
Dark chocolate first
Then milk choc, then white
Whip cream crown
Fiftheenth Epulaeryu! ^-^
Ok, I'm more of a vanilla person, but DAMN WAS THIS MOUSSE AMAZING!
I loved how it was layered, and then it had both a whipped cream topping with grated chocolate. DELECTABLE!
I'm usually one who can't have too much of something or I'll get sick (got a real sensitive stomach) but this mousse? Best I've had in years!
Got more sugary goodness coming! Y'all are gonna be gaining weight with me lool!
