I’m not a really a cake girl. That said, I had every intention of baking a King Cake today to celebrate Fat Tuesday. As I started assembling my ingredients, and taking stock of my sprinkles and available icing colors, I got more and more distracted by the weather outside. Spring is almost here. Freezing nights and short days will soon be a memory. Seedlings are pushing their way through the soil in my garden, and I’m needing fewer and fewer layers to feel comfortable outdoors. As I was distractedly rummaging through my cupboards for a king cake pan, I ran across this:
Vanilla & Almond Spring cakes:
3 cups all-purpose flour
Confectioners sugar (to dust)
While I was sitting on the grass, a ladybug landed on my hand. The ambassador of good luck! Here’s hoping you all have a happy and lucky springtime!!
