The problem with having work-related meetings in the evening is that you're all hopped up for a long time afterward. Normally, at this time of night, I'm already in bed, in my jammies, reading, or playing Boggle on my iPhone. (I'm totally addicted. It's way better than Skee Ball. Yeah, I said it.)
As you see, I lead the glamourous life.
Anyway, I'm totally hyper right now and just had one of my husband's fresh-baked rolls. Sublime.
This is one of the many reasons I love having my husband working from home. Fresh baked goods rule.
And speaking of which, in the Bed, Bath and Beyond flyer I got today, there were two cake pans designed to create two giant imitations of other sweet foodstuffs: a giant set that made an oreo-shaped cookie (you supply the frosting) and a giant donut cake pan that made, natch, a giant, yeah.
What is it with giant cake molds? Are we not gluttonous enough as a nation? Why do we have to supersize our cakes? Isn't that kind of overkill? Or is it an oxymoron? I don't want a donut, I want a CAKE-SIZED donut that doesn't taste like a donut. And I want a giant Oreo that tastes nothing like the actual cookie.
They come on the heels of the ubiquitous giant cupcake cake pans, which make far more sense because they're actually MADE OF CAKE.
Call me a purist, but that's the only oversized cake mold I'm interested in.
And I know I am not alone in this.
What's next, a cake mold shaped like a giant vat of ice cream, with a waffle cone?
Just seems like way too much trouble to go to when there's a Coldstone up the street. And the dessert would actually taste like you expected it to.
Trompe l'oeil pastry? Non merci.
