Meanwhile, Thank you Taxlady...I think you're right. Now that I look at that name for Trader Joe's french puff pastry more closely I can see that what I thought was a capital J is probably a capital F. Thank you for straightening me out. I had to google what "Feuillette" meant..."pastry" of course
That really is a funny looking F, I would only guess that it wasn't a J based on the word. Actually feuilletée means leafy or in sheets. It's the French expression for flaky. As I'm sure you knew, pâte is the pastry part. So, it's just what the French call puff pastry.

Thank you Simona for your kind words. I've noticed that when we post quotes, then the pics don't show up unfortunately. Are these the pics below that you were referring to that went with Enya's song "Amid The Fallen Snow"?

....or did you mean all the photos in general in this thread? I find them in different places but all of these "Winter" ones you referred to came from foodgawker.com. They don't mind if you post them somewhere if you include the name of the creator. If you click on the photos the creator's name usually pops up...unless it's anonymous .

On the foodgawker site there is a searchbox which I think I typed in "snow" or "winter cupcakes". The little girl catching snowflakes with her tongue I found on Google Images...I probably typed in "catching snowflakes on tongue". If you click on the two cupcake pics they will show the original creator of the cupcakes in the title bar...itsybitsyfoodies and fancyflours dod the cupcakes. I always try to remember to post the credits...but some pics are anonymous, probably due to being shared often around the web from site to site.

Actually, I hate to admit this in such knowledgeable company as the DC Forum but I always thought "Pate" had to do with smooshed up liver

It does

Pâté = is the yummy liver stuff (one pronounces all the letters, two syllables)

Pâte = pastry (don't pronounce the e, one syllable)

Taxlady...i didn't know there were
two meanings and two pronunciations
for "pate". Thank you for taking the time.

And hello to everyone above
This is the last of Winter Food Art.

Next will be Valentines Day.
You might get some good ideas
