I hate that I haven't had time to post more, but things have been crazy! Emma and I have been working on promoting of cake company, Layers NYC (http://www.layersnyc.com/). Everyone's feedback has been wonderful! Between recipe testing, sourcing supplies and, of course, making cakes, I don't know how we work full time jobs! Also, on top of that, I have been working on another project for months (really years!) and just announced my new business endeavor this past week. I know it doesn't have anything to do with culinary, but this involves my other passion - music. Please check it out... http://www.statenislandgleeclub.com/.
Anyway, Easter is tomorrow and I am up to my knees in flour. I've been working on a special dessert menu for the holiday and am still making the components for it. My next blog will be about that.
One tradition in our family is Easter bread. Sometimes my mom makes it but I volunteered to make it this year. Our version of Easter bread is sort of a combination of a challah and a brioche. It is relatively simple to make but, between mixing, kneeding (by hand, of course), rising and baking - takes over 4 hours to make!
I would share this recipe with you but then I'd have to kill you...
Don't you just hate when people say that.
I know this hasn't been the most exciting post but just wait until you see how obnoxious the next one is! I will be sharing some recipes for that one, too.
