Your Daily Sweets: What Are You Making and Baking? (2017 – )

Ha I was wondering where the cut would be. They picked the best spot to preserve the look. Yes his eyes do look a bit half-mast. H will never forget it though!

@RWood, you have ruined that child for all other cakes and set yourself a very high bar for repeat performances, which I’m sure will be demanded!

 

Yeah, Ginger was already asking me what I thought of a humpback whale.  New obsession I guess.  But, that could change in a year :).  And, the mom is expecting another boy in a few months.  

 

I have a few cakes I'm wanting to make.  An octopus for myself, and a standing Harley for my dad, but I have to get back to Georgia to make it for him.  I have a list that maybe I'll get to one of these days.  Hopefully from paying customers and not just for me ;).

Yeah, the back is the only place that is cake.  The rest is rice krispies.  They only needed cake for about 10 people, so like I told them, I got over enthusiastic :).  But, for a 3D standing dinosaur, what else would have looked right?

New neighbours got a welcome package today: more sourdough jimbits (doughnuts), coffee and salted vanilla caramels, fresh-milled, whole rye, chocolate chip cookies, a jar of the jelly we made from the neighbour's crabapples, and some non-edibles: soap, some street and neighbourhood coasters.

Wow! I hope they are the type of folks who get that thank you is enough

One hopes!

 

They seem nice and have friendly dogs. Someone dropped off a lovely potted daisy as a thank you for some caramels the other day.

I'm definitely becoming known in the neighbourhood for dropping off stuff, especially caramels, so god forbid you want to move to southwestern Ontario, you can get in on the action. Sometimes I worry about my neighbours getting too much stuff - I'm being a little hypocritical here, haha, because I don't want a bunch of food - but everyone seems to be enjoying it so far.

Lord have mercy. I'm the one who wouldn't move to Council Bluffs, Iowa, because I was afraid I'd freeze to death.

Don't ask. Eat it.

Rhubarb tart!

Sooooo....thin-sliced lengthwise on a mandoline? I might have to try that.

Did you blanch in syrup or par-roast or anything to make it flexible?

Yes and almost, I guess. :)

 

Lengthwise on a mandoline, and hot syrup poured over the rhubarb strips. I let them rest for a few minutes in the hot syrup, to get them more flexible as you wrote.

Cool.

Just harvested some yesterday, and this looks like a perfect use-case for the larger stems.
