Recipes are all fine and good when they're simply printed but there's something magic about watching something come together creatively in a video. More, more!
Eli Squarepants! Okay so I'm not really a Spongebob fan, I'm a little old for that one, but I do think the show is cute and my nieces and nephews love it. This cake is a masterpiece topped off with those little jellyfish, I'm smitten. It makes me want to watch the show just because someone was so masterful with fondant. Hey baker, are you being payed by Nickelodeon?
The couple times I've gone to LA to visit, one of my favorite things to do is to drive through the Hollywood Hills in a rental car with the windows down. The views are spectacular, the breeze is lovely and how can you not feel glamorous cruising past the giant houses where movie stars live? The cake version looks like a rough drive, but munching on it would remind me of sunny vistas and gorgeous escape.
The first time I ever saw eggs in a basket was in a black and white slapstick comedy from the 40s. I wish I could remember what the movie was. I was watching late at night probably about 12 years ago now and was so inspired by this snack they ate onscreen that I had to make it immediately. It has since become a standby snack that I will eat at any time of day. Nowadays I add Sriracha and maybe some quick sauteed greens and call it lunch. Excuse me, I have to go turn on the stove now.
This is a classy step up from the spodi we drank in college, that's for sure! Think of all the delicious melon-tinged beverages you could serve out of this baby! I'd fill it with champagne and a little triple sec and the juice from the melon and I'd sit back and sigh deeply with contentment.
