Cake, I Love You

Cake, I love you.

Saints, I love you.

Mardi Gras, I love you.

So many love letters to write, so little time.

Discovered the most wonderful new cookbook, an unabashed testament to the power of cake. Jill O’Connor wrote Cake I Love You which has just cake after cake after cake, and tons of insider secrets like how to make your own vanilla extract. Every recipe starts with “first cream the butter with the sugar,” and it never gets old. I have flagged basically every recipe in the wildly colored pages for future birthday endeavors. Or a day off.

Tonight, I started with the Diner Coffee Cake recipe, and I brought it to a Muses Shoe Decorating party. So much butter. Delish.

Looking forward to the Saints beating the Vikings this weekend…. playoff magic! I’m sure there will be a cake for that celebration,

 

One thought on “Cake, I Love You

  1. Happy almost-Mardi Gras to you, KP, and all the fine folks of NOLA, dear Rachel! What a delightful-looking cookbook! The coffee cake you made to kick off your cake baking adventures from this book looks delicious. And the shoes you and your fellow Muse shoe-making partygoers made are simply spectacular! The Prince tribute ones of course warm my Minnesotan heart 🙂 Also, I hope you weren’t too sad about your prediction for the outcome of that football game not quite coming to pass 😉 Love and hugs to you all!
