Latte Art - cheats tutorial

I found this on you tube, but there are plenty more on there which should give you a good idea how to make the patterns, or inspiration for your own. You do have to use an espresso machine, and if you poured your espresso into a small glass, it would have a head on it - like a small Guiness. You pour your Espresso into the cup, then add your foamed milk like in the video. When it comes to the bit where you create your pattern, the secret is to get the spout of the jug near to the surface of the cup.

I shall expect to see some of your efforts in your blogs. I am now saving up for an espresso machine as you cannot achieve this with a cafetiere!! Good Luck!

Wow! Thanks for finding the tutorial - I'd love to try but I just know I'd end up with a blobby mess - it looks a very skilled thing to do:)

I have a Bodum milk frother and a stove top espresso maker, will see what I can do with that. Don't hold your breath though I think it may be one of those things that looks easy then isn't.
