A few years ago, I was lamenting to a friend about why some boy wasn’t interested in me. My friend simply said, “he’s a vanilla cake with vanilla frosting and probably looking for another piece of vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. You’re more like a spiced carrot cake with mascarpone icing and just hold out until you find someone that can appreciate all your layers of flavor.” That was probably the best relationship advice I ever got. So if you’re also not a traditional apple pie or a chocolate birthday cake, don’t fret. Wouldn’t you prefer a drizzle of heat, crunch, and a sprinkling of surprise?
When I wrote a recipe and story for the February issue of Bridges Magazine, I wasn’t about to discuss chocolates, diamonds or roses. For any of you that have kept up with my SugarCube ramblings, you know those aren’t my favorite things. Recipe HERE.
