Our desktop calendar for August is a picture of homemade rose-raspberry cupcakes — a vanilla cake base, a rose-flavored buttercream frosting, and a fresh raspberry on top.

June '09 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month in 2009, I am offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Of course each of our two little plants is delivering its fruits sparingly, making us extra grateful for each of the delicious berries they yield, but also making it necessary to turn to the pros for the rest of my needs — I have my mother’s strawberry tart and ichigo daifuku to make!

What about you — care to share your favorite ways to use fresh strawberries?
