Asparagus cake.

While in Boston, I ate the freshest asparagus ever from my mother-in-law’s garden. I don’t think I even knew how it grew until I saw it shooting straight up from the ground! It looked just like this fondant asparagus created by Sweetapolita.

Isn’t this the most amazing work of art you’ve ever seen?! It makes me want to get into fondant, which is where food meets high art.

Such beautiful layers. Discovered on Hip Hip Hooray.

    Asparagus has been used as a vegetable and medicine, owing to its delicate flavour, diuretic properties, and more. It is pictured as an offering on an Egyptian frieze dating to 3000 BC. Still in ancient times, it was known in Syria and in Spain. Greeks and Romans ate it fresh when in season and dried the vegetable for use in winter; Romans would even freeze it high in the Alps, for the Feast of Epicurus. Emperor Augustus reserved the “Asparagus Fleet” for hauling the vegetable, and coined the expression “faster than cooking asparagus” for quick action.*
