Before I get to these extra yummy little cakes, I'd like to share a bit of good news!
If you have read the about me page provided on this blog, then you probably know that art (not baking) was my first love, and I was once an aspiring painter. Since then, my artistic endeavors have taken a natural shift from canvas to the dessert plate. Baking has gradually and unexpectedly become my preferred method of creative expression.
A couple of months ago I was contacted by a literary agent (or angel, I should say) asking if I'd like to put together a proposal for a baking book...and not just any baking book. This book would combine my love of art and it's application in baking! Needless to say I was fully on board with eager smiles at the prospect. Now the book is becoming a reality!
I can barely suppress a squeal at this very moment.
In the coming months blog updates may be sporadic, but I'll do my best to post recipes whenever I can. Hopefully, when on the other side of this project, I'll be able to offer you a wonderful creativity book that will inspire your baking! I already have so many ideas, and if you like this, this or this, chances are you will love the book.
And now that I've regained my composure, the recipe.
