– Winter Wonderland – Day 12 CAKE
Winter Wonderland 31 Days 31 Paintings Challenge!!!
Today is day 12/31 Charlie’s prompt list says “CAKE” I am joining doodlewash if you like to do watercolor painting or ink-wash or sketches you can still join in to this December Challenge, you’re invited! Check the doodlewash link!
For today painting a cake I decided to paint a Panettone which is a traditional dessert for Christmas in Italy my native country! I painted the two most common. The one on the left is called “Traditional Panettone” let’s say it is the classic original, in the past existed only that one, made in a dome shape it is very good and soft with a touch of candied raisins and citrus inside! Delicious I love both of them. The second on the right side of my painting is called “Pandoro” the name translation means gold bread it takes the name from the beautiful soft feeling and the color, this one also is served with powder sugar sprinkled on top and looks like a snowy mountain! The best way to serve them is to warm the up a little in the oven before serving, they are great anytime with coffee, champagne or a sweet wine every house in Italy have panettone during the Holidays until the New Year which people have it a midnight with champagne celebrating the new year. I made sure this year to have found them both of the known brand I used to have with my family in Italy. 🙂 Buon Natale! ❤
