Anyone actually paying attention to the internet this week? No? Good, because I am EXHAUSTED. Between the wrapping of 10 million presents, watching every single one that took so long to perfectly wrap to my insane standard be ripped to shreds in a matter of seconds, getting everyone dressed and to church, cleaning the house, cooking, having guests, cleaning again, heading to Jersey to see family- I am SHOT. So making this blog a quick one today.
Cupcakes/whoopies/brownies in select stores today. This is the FINAL appearance of both the Hansel and Chocolate Candy Cane until next December, and come next week we’ll be back in “ordinary time”- no more special “once a year” flavors. Know I just compounded your post-holiday depression by a million. It’s hard on us, too.
Good news is that so many of the flavors you love that have been shelved for months for holiday/fall flavors are now back in play, so get over to Facebook and make requests for the January schedule! Because I’ve waited til the last possible minute to write it!
Little side note: Matt has been asked to judge the final projects for the Pastry Arts Department of the International Culinary Center (nee French Culinary Institute), meaning the fate of the pastry chefs of tomorrow is in his hands! ICC is one of the finest culinary schools in the world, so it’s amazing to know I’m sleeping with one of the judges. I’m super proud of him, as always.
Now here’s today’s flavors, and we’ll see you back here on Monday for our final post of 2012! Should be a doozy! Or I may phone it in again- let’s see how tired I am Sunday night.
(forgot picture tonight- here’s a dog in a hula skirt to make it up to you)
Hot Toddy: Honey whiskey soaked cake, honey cinnamon buttercream, candied lemon peel
