Here's proof that a rainy day isn't always a bad thing. Now if only we could manage to contain all our weather woes inside baked goods. Let's move to Barbados!
What an adorable snack! I'd like to see a whole flock of truffle sheep roaming across the vast expanse of my kitchen table, nibbling the crumbs left over from last night's dinner, bleating plaintively, aware that I'll be nibbling on their salty little pretzel legs soon.
This cake makes me think of the book "Afternoon of the Elves" by Janet Talyor Lisle which I read when I was only 11. It's reminiscent of a girl in boots that are too big who spends all her time building houses for elves out of leaves in her back yard. But now she's all grown up and getting married to an equally elvin man and they are having a simple barefoot wedding in the woods.
