Life cyle of a Bajaderka

Notice, how wonderfully they wrap the sweets there. It must be a part of the tradition of the famous cukiernia ‘Roman Pomianowski i syn’. When the full moon has come, buy a ‘bajadera’, or ‘bajaderka’ as those for whom it has a sentimental value call it. Wander then in the streets of Warsaw with a small packet swaying on a string. You adjust your pace to the rhythm of this rather heavy pendulum. After having unwrapped it, observe the shiny layer of chocolate of your bajaderka. Now, the nice thing about bajaderkas is that they all seem to be the same, but in fact every one of them is unique. Arr – hmm. What do you find inside? Maybe a piece of the szarlotka cake or the quark/chocolate cake (delicious) or possibly some nuts or a coffee bean. For those of you who have never tasted it, imagine the showcase of a sweetshop. Continue with your easy fantasy exercise and take a bit from each of your favourite cakes. Then work the dough into a ball and finally glaze it with chocolate. In order not to have this image spoilt, do not ask in a cukiernia, how they make it. And one more thing, if you don’t like poppy seeds, don’t go to the sweetshop of Stanisław Strzałkowski on Tamka street 45.
