Not a storm in a teacup!

By Kaxxie
It’s a swan in a coffee cup!

Hi everyone

This was a work of art...and took almost as long. The barista took great care with his masterpiece. He created the first part simply by pouring. Then he used an implement for more detail before finally getting a kind of stippling implement to do the eye. He was so proud of his creation he asked if he could photograph it. Bless him! My friend had taken her pot of tea to our table and almost drunk the lot before I joined her. My coffee was barely warm but it looked magnificent. 😉 The version is from a different cafe, expertly created by pouring.

Thank you for all your votes and comments on yesterday’s image and Alan for your UA. They are very much appreciated as always.

Have a happy Sunday everyone.

Take care

Karen

You little joker John. I love it. At one time they used to put whipped cream on mocha coffee. Just before the last added cream I asked if it was low calorie cream. She paused, mid squirt & looked uncertain. I don’t think she understood my sense of humour!!!!
