The Long Weekend
June 11, 2012
I've lost my ability to bake - I tried making a pie and the pastry shrunk after baking it blind so much there was nowhere for the filling to go. With an hour to go, I decided to just go to the local bakery instead and buy a cake - I just pointed to this one as it looked the prettiest. It was flourless I think, some sort of hazelnut/almond meal confection. It was really good, and worth the exorbitant price (when did cakes get so expensive?).
I also bought a succulent to live in my glass cloche/bell jar - hopefully my black thumb doesn't kill this one off like the many plants before it.
