Baci di Ciliegie - cherry ricotta fritters

Yesterday I departed my 30s. I haven't been too stressed from an "Oh my god I'm 40" perspective, but I thoroughly enjoyed my 30s so I am sad to see them go.

To start my birthday, I made these cherry ricotta fritters. It's a half-quantity of Nigella's Baci di Ricotta recipe, made with really lovely buffalo ricotta, and given an extra kick with a handful of cherries, which I put down in booze a month ago. The cherries did make the fritters a weird colour, but they were absolutely delicious and very moreish. The scattering of icing sugar really freaked out my camera though.
