Zhizara,
What great coffee! Do you think you missed your calling, and should be serving hot drinks in a coffee shop? Those look so cool!

I would do retirement so well!!! I SO wish I was retired, but I still have a while to go. At least you can serve your friends coffee in style. I am a tea drinker myself.

I didn't do the coffee. I just looked up coffee images so I'd have cute coffee pictures when I need to butter up the boss.

Thanks, KL!

I've been wanting to find this thread so we could all look at it again and hopefully get more examples of this wonderful food art.

Glad I could help Z!! Actually, I think this was one of the best threads ever on DC, thanks to Mollyanne. Darn, I miss that girl, and hope she is doing well.
