You look like I need a drink – Mae West

This is one of my favourite quotes of all time. I think of it every now and then when I’ve just made something that didn’t quite work out the way I planned. Like this Croquembouche I’m currently staring at in disbelief. The picture of which has somehow magically disappeared, by the way, so I can’t share it with you. I’ll go with a Smoke Martini instead.
