(Sort Of) Cooking by the Book: Strawberry-Lemon Layer Cake (Christina Tosi recipe in Saveur)

This is not a typical Cooking by the Book post for a bunch of reasons (the recipe’s not from a book; I absolutely did not even try to follow the procedure exactly as written) but because I thought it deserved a very thorough walk-through, I’m calling it a (Sort Of)... Read More

Friday Photo — Cake As a Way of Life

I was so busy toiling in my cake factory last week that I plumb forgot to post this photo of cake for Friday Photo! So, although it is admittedly a bit late in the day, it is still Friday, so I can at least post it for this week: This... Read More

(Sparkling) Sweets for Your Sweetie

Sugar + Shake say, “Going out to dinner on Valentine’s Day is for suckers.” Seriously, we NEVER go, and we started dating just before Valentine’s Day.
