This week I decorated a cake baked in the “Zeeuwse Knop” baking tin. For centuries the zeeuwse knop has been an essential part of the Zeeuwse traditional dress. Serving as buttons you could see them being worn almost everyday in Zeeland. Later after second world war diverse jewelry based on the button design gained popularity. Tinka Leene an artist living in Zeeland recently designed & brought to market the baking tin in the shape of the Zeeuwse Knop.
The baking tin has traveled beyond the Netherlands ~ and currently Tinka is working with all those Dutchies abroad that have baked their favorite recipe in the tin on a book publication.
It’s a very exciting, fun & promising project; you may find recipes, stories and pictures sent in all over the world!
Living in the UK I decided to bake a traditional Fruit Cake! I decorated it in Gold- following the Royal Wedding and it’s wedding cake made of Fruit Cake as well. But also decorated one with the Union Jack! I wonder which one Tinka will choose for her book. Which one do you like best?–>
Happy weekend to you all!
