Sigh sigh sigh. This year I will miss celebrating St. Jordi's Day as I will be cloistered in a computer lab listening to a lecture on T-tests and independent variables in my statistics class at the university. Every year I look forward to photographing events on this day, but since I will be en absènsia, I will display creatively themed St. Jordi edible items all made from dough (the title meant to be a pun to all the money made on this day), instead of the usual books and rose tradition. I found these lovely treats depicting the Catalan fable between the the dragon and the brave knight (the princess is missing). I act as semi-curator of all things Catalan, and I found pictures on Facebook and on Google searches of cookies and cupcakes having to do with this adventurous tradition.
This was the first thing I found on Facebook.
Like the dragon and St. Jordi (shield and tower), but they should have included a princess cookie! These yummy cookies are from BONPASTÍS.

These rose motif cupcakes were swirled and designed at Alicia's Cakes... amazing!

Rose cookies from I Feel Cook. I wonder if that is a Raymond Carver book?
Enjoy eating, smelling roses and buying books! Adeu.
