Parisian Pastry n 107 - a painting a day

I'm back painting the Gourmandises Parisiennes.

La Polonaise n 107
oil on gesso board 5x7 inches
100 euro - 

This Parisian pastry has almond nougat, candied fruit and sponge cake,  topped with almond flavored meringue and sprinkled with toasted almonds.  I don't know why they call it the Polish woman - bizarre.  I have to add that I did eat it.  The inside was excellent but the meringue had a funny fish taste to it.
