It is not uncommon for new menu items to be developed months before their debut. This equates to careful planning in order to save an adequate supply of seasonal produce for later experimentation. The dilemma: How do you know what to create in the future? This creation was inspired by a want for something fresh. It's 25 degrees C here in Washington DC, which feels more like late spring than February, so it's appropriate to give a sneak peak on one of the new flavors for the spring/summer menu. Let me introduce 'The Bramble Bush of Ida': Vanilla-Bean Cake + Raspberries Alternatively Layered with Vanilla-Bean Buttercream and Green Tea-Matcha Pastry Cream. Decorated with Chamelaucium uncinatum "wax flowers" and gold leaf.
luscious banana pudding cream: so dreamy thankfully had enough patience to add nilla wafers and sliced bananas, and chill for several hours in the fridge. it’s called perseverance!
pair with chocolate, peanut butter, or both.
I love baking all sorts of things, but my favorite bake is a cookie. Give me a homemade chocolate chip, ginger snap, or in this case a snickerdoodle any day!
I used to bake these with my grandmother (aka Mimom) a lot when I was a little girl. I remember her teaching me and my siblings how to carefully measure out the ingredients, mixing them together, and rolling balls of dough in cinnamon and sugar. As I sank my teeth into these little lovelies, nostalgia flooded my mind and heart, and my tastebuds sang the snickerdoodle praises!
Thank you Mimom for teaching me how to be mindful about baking, and for being patient with us kids in the kitchen. I was able to share this experience with my own today, and it was wonderful. Love you!!! #homemade#arvadabakes#snickerdoodles#denverfood#nostaglia#bakersofinstagram#lovewhatido#gonnasharethesewithfriends
