Almond Joy tart

Are you in need of a new show to binge watch? Wait, stupid question—of course you are. We all are. And today, I have the perfect recommendation for you: a beautiful little show called Mozart in the Jungle.

Being a total music nerd (and a reluctant fan of classical music), I was instantly intrigued by the premise of a comedy-drama centering on a fictional New York symphony, described by the tagline “sex, drugs, and classical music”. And yeah, it delivers on all three things. In abundance.

Coconut white chocolate blondies

For whatever reason, I have posted shockingly few bar desserts on this blog. Not because I dislike bars—in fact, one might say I enjoy them to a dangerous degree—but probably because they are a little too easy, and we all know I have expressed great disdain for fast, easy desserts in the past. I like desserts that are complex and multi-layered, special-occasion treats that require slaving over a hot stove for hours to make.

And you know what? That’s a damn shame. Because bar desserts are frickin awesome.

Need a way to use up all that god damn caramel sauce you whipped up for that huge cake you made a couple weeks ago? Look no further! Because June is here to save the day, yet again, with cinnamon rolls!

Apricot, cranberry, and almond whipped cream scones

Boy, I sure have been posting a lot of cake lately. How about we switch things up a little bit por un momento, bake something that may actually contain some amount of nutrients in it for once?

Chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel layer cake with vanilla bean buttercream

Remember when I said that homemade vegan caramel sauce was “perfect for drizzling on a cake”, perhaps “a certain cake which you may be seeing in the future”?

Yeah. Well. Here you are.

Homemade vegan caramel sauce

So it’s recently come to my attention that this blog here has just turned two years old. All I can say is, wow. Really shows that even if you’re a ninety-year-old hag like me, you can still learn some new tricks and find new hobbies, perhaps even hobbies that would’ve been physically impossible to carry out in the good ol’ days of my youth and the vast majority of my adulthood, given that the internet didn’t, um, exist.

Triple rum black pepper bundt cake (#BundtBakers)

vegan triple rum back pepper bundt cake

New year, new Bundt Bakers post. And what else is new? The host! That’s right—this month’s host is yours truly, swooping down to bestow you all with the (totally rad, IMHO) theme of “strange but good—weird flavor combinations that actually work” before soaring back up into the clouds of Hostingdom.
