Oh George, who knew you were secretly a banana cake under all that fondant cuteness? I'm a big fan of banana bread and muffins. I never thought to treat them like cupcakes and decorate them. New inspiration!
I've never had a cannelé before, but they look amazing. According to Mowielicious they are crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside and made with rum. Ooh mama I think I need to put on my baking face and tackle some of these babies! Have you had them? What did you think?
Themed birthdays are something I never had the pleasure of as a child. I mean sure, I had matching paper plate, napkins and cardboard party hats all with Barbie on them, but disposable paper products do not a theme make. I was never a big Spider Man fan as a kid, but now that I'm thirty-something I wouldn't turn up my nose at these cookies.
This is absolutely the right way to walk down the street with a snack. All snacks should be expressive of who we are on the inside. Why can't food be just as much an accessory as a pair of earrings? It's temporary, sure, but that is a tasty expression right there.
What is this gingerbread man singing about? First thought, "Frosty the Snowman" but look at his jaunty little hat and dramatic wide stance! He must be in the middle of an epic Vivaldi piece or something. He's serious. I'm going to let him finish his song before I eat him.
Do you ever get a little upset that gingerbread is so hard to chew and doesn't have any alcohol in it? C'mon, admit it, during the holidays with the family sometimes you just need to get a little buzz on to survive. This buzz is festive, holiday appropriate and best of all, really pretty to look at. Thank goodness the good people at the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen are around to give us creative jiggly ideas. No shame, down the hatch!
