Tout doucement..un peu de rose pour les Fêtes~
Stepping gently off the beaten path..into more subtle food gift offerings for the holidays..
Not everything has to be super sweet and square and red and white for the holidays..especially for holiday gift sharing~
I think I know someone who will love a sweet or two or three..
But pretty shortbreads and little cakes for tea.. may please her more..
I saw Bonnie's post about her Almond Sour Cream Cake..I knew my husband would be ready for a sweet after dinner when we returned home..as he only ate lovely Lebkuchen from friends..and scrumptious scones.. (that I made again right away upon our arrival!)
Not enough ..
he is always prudent..never overdoes anything.. but likes something sweet after dinner..just a bit..like his mom for sure!
I try and make smaller quantities:)
I knew I had almond paste at home.. we picked up sour cream and eggs at a new incredibly attractive food store ..close enough.. nearby..I see weekly jaunts for certain..♥
You can't imagine:)
and ..I made Bonnie's Cake..
I made 3 actually.... a small heritage type silicone mold I have shown you..SO wonderful it is..
Silicone is so pleasing to use..
I keep saying it..but it's true..Silicone..good quality..
Nordic Ware.. USA pans..:)
..and I made..2 smaller loaves..for gifting.
So he is enjoying the cake w/ the design....the other 2 will be gifted..
I had a bite to make sure it's good..it's good..it's even better the next day:) Love those kind of cakes..
It's like a great almond pound cake..not dry.. not wet..just right~
Let us all keep calm and bake on~♥
