Very very spontaneous I decided to go to France for one week. Arrived in Paris first I moved carefully around because of all the things which happened there and in my life during the last year. At least I was quite happy that  it was August because I wanted to have the town for me alone. And the streets are really empty. But it was still so much life that this dream city was like always. In the hotel I was upgraded, never I had to wait, the inspiration for artful pastries was amazing again. The idea of this recipe I have from a new Patisserie book, I just made it more easy to realize, and the wild strawberry liqueur frosting with additional red color is my obsession for intense strawberry red.During my stay one day I went to Luxembourg Garden with the most beautiful little raspberry cake to take pictures. It was great fun.

But what is France without the sea in August. But this will be the next post.

Preheat the oven to 180°. Stir together the ground almonds with the icing sugar. This mixture work together with the butter. Then add  the pate de pistachio, then the oil, then the egg yolks and then the milk. Beat the egg whites with the sugar until firm. Carefully mix in the mixture and finally the flour. Butter small baking moulds , put in the dough and bake at 180° for ten minutes and then at 160° further 30 min.

Put the cakes in the fridge to make the icing easier. Gently warm the apricot jam. Stir together the icing sugar, the water , the strawberry liqueur and the red color. After half an hour take the cakes out of the fridge, cover first with the apricot jam and then with red icing. Decorate with some pistachios.
