I'd like to say that because the weekend is almost here, I am thinking about cake.
The truth is, I am always thinking about cake.
When I'm in the car stuck in traffic, when I'm at the dentist's office, walking down the street and especially when I'm in a meeting. A slow, forever gabby, eye-roll kind of meeting. All I can think is, "You know what would be awesome right now? CAKE." And it would! It would and is always--awesome.
You all know my love of the Smitten Kitchen. I rarely come upon a recipe on the site where I go, "I don't think so." Actually, I never had that reaction to any of her recipes. It's a wonderous place.
So, It is with great pleasure and cake wanting ways that I share with you some of her best. I love that she calls them "celebration cakes", because anything can be a celebration with cake. Even a dreadfully dull meeting.
And, since we're on the subject of CAKE, I am also including some of my other faves from BAKED. If you find yourself in Brooklyn, you must visit them. Also, their cookbooks Rock. Hard. Happy Weekend. -angelo
