This Doce do Algarve Made Me Smile

This little pig went to the local market and bought a piggy sweet.

Pig Sweet – Doces do Algarve


Doces do Algarve are traditional handmade marzipan sweets. They are super-sweet so if you want a shot of sugar they are perfect! They are normally shaped and carefully painted as fruit, vegetables or fish, (or at least the ones I’ve seen) so this pig came as a nice surprise.

Here is a brilliant website with pictures  and a step-by-step guide to make Doces do Algarve
I don’t think I have enough patience.

That’s my smile for this week. For more #weeklysmiles click over to Trent’s Blog
