I’ve hit a snag in my holiday baking (or holibaking as it shall henceforth be known) plans: my family doesn’t eat desserts as fast as I want to make them!
Arrrrrgggghhhhh. This is tough guys, like, it’s a serious problem. To me. I’ve got all this pent up energy and a basket of browning bananas sitting on my kitchen island, yet I’m unable to make that banana cake I’ve been dying to bake for (oh, I don’t know) months, just because we still have leftover cupcakes, crepe cake, and that awesome yellow cake with chocolate sour cream frosting.
I suppose I kinda neglected that one teeny tiny detail of my working days… I usually bake ’em, pack ’em, and bring ’em to work for my colleagues to have at tea time. Hmmm… I’m starting to eye my neighbours doorbells like a starving cartoon character would see a giant talking T-bone steak taunting them, just… begging to be rung. Maybe it’s time to host a street party, or even just show up randomly at the neighbours’ with wrapped goodies?
Or maybe it’s time I get out of the house. I don’t know why, but my hermit mode switches right on when I’m on holidays. I don’t go out unless someone drives me, and I wake up mid day to have coffee and watch tv with my siblings, then I try to trick the senses by taking a shower and getting all dressed up even though I know deep down that I have not a single ounce of intention to cross that threshold. Dude, I’m so lazy. I love it though.
Here’s something that I baked this week, had tons of fun with, and was quite a hit with the parents: hummingbird cupcakes with whipped cream cheese frosting. The recipe was basically the one I used here, minus the pears, and this whipped cream cheese frosting which is currently my favourite to top cakes with. Great taste and texture, but ooooh boy… I think I need to cycle around the lake tomorrow morning. Just to make up for this week I’ve spent on my arse.
Anyone wanna come over for morning coffee/high tea/dessert?
