Yesterday we decided to go for cake instead of ice cream. This is my gooseberry cake.
This one will be hard to top. It has chocolate, vanilla, and chocolate chip ice cream, pears, chocolate sauce, and cream, not to mention all the cookies. It was the July special at an Eis cafe in Seigen. And Christian got a raspberry ice cream for his selection.
“Spaghetti Eis” — vanilla ice cream made to look like spaghetti topped with strawberry sauce — is fairly common. I like the places that do variants on that theme. This is “spaghetti Nero,” chocolate ice cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate crumbles, whole hazelnuts and whole walnuts.
Yesterday’s selection: the After Eight (mint) cup. I only ate one.
Last night’s ice cream: krokantbecher.
And what the others had:
While some people go to Germany to visit biergartens, I visit Eis Cafes. This was the chocolate brownie cup at Dulce in downtown Frankfurt am Main.
April is poetry month so I thought I would share the link to the zine Dissections where I have recently had two poems published.
If you see something you like, let me know. I have many I am selling.
