More Cupcakes!!

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

I was sad when it was announced that Iron Cupcake: Earth was no more. It was a significant factor in my getting seriously interested in pastry, leading me to experiment with recipes and learn how to make a real buttercream. It was on hiatus for a while as its fate was being determined, and I [...]

You Tart!

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Oh hey. It’s been like a month. I promised things were going to change, didn’t I? …Well, they’re not. At least not in the way I promised. See, I just don’t have the energy, or honestly, the interest to be as hardcore into blogging as I was a year ago. Priorities change. So instead of [...]

Fear of Meltage

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Currently, I’m sitting here in a pool of sweat, consuming as much icy deliciousness as I can. Sorbet, iced tea, iced coffee, you know. What’s that you say? It’s hot where you are, too? And you’re afraid that the ice cream you want so badly to cool you off will melt on the trip home? [...]

For Your Health!

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

This is going to be a rather unusual post, one of those rare, non-sugary things that I come up with every once in a great while. Not only that, but it’s flat-out healthy, and came together out of a particularly successful spring trip to the Greenmarket.

An Idea to Chew On

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I’d had a really yummy idea swimming around in my brain for a while, and like all swimmy ideas it changed and evolved over time, even getting so far as to be hypothetically written out in my notebook, along with recipes for accompanying elements. Also like many swimmy ideas, it sat fairly dormant until I [...]

Daring Bakers April 2010: Steamed Pudding

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

The April 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Esther of The Lilac Kitchen. She challenged everyone to make a traditional British pudding using, if possible, a very traditional British ingredient: suet. I wasn’t terribly excited about this challenge at first, and didn’t bother with the whole suet thing, choosing instead to substitute butter (of [...]

Gray and Yellow

Hi! Remember me? No? …Reeeeally? Maybe this will jog your memory.

The Spoils of Food Blogging

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

As much as I enjoy participating in the Daring Bakers, I do run into the same problem fairly frequently – I make some component for the challenge dessert and end up with much too much of whatever it is. This time, it was grapefruit marmalade. Luckily, I only had to wonder what I was going [...]

Daring Bakers March 2010: Grapefruit Tian with Matcha & Black Sesame

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

The 2010 March Daring Baker’s challenge was hosted by Jennifer of Chocolate Shavings. She chose Orange Tian as the challenge for this month, a dessert based on a recipe from Alain Ducasse’s Cooking School in Paris.

Humble Beginnings

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

This is the first post in what will be an occasional little project I’m starting on this blog. You see, as much as I love cupcakes and coming up with ways to make them weird and wonderful, I think I bake them too much. Certainly for someone who has been working at a REAL restaurant [...]
