“Hey, Y/N, what’s the theme this year for the big 1-8?” Sheri asks.

“Hmm?”

“Your birthday, silly!” The head cheerleader exclaims. “What are we doing?”

“Oh. Uh, I’m not actually doing anything.” Several surprised what’s sound from around the lunch table and you chuckle. “It’s not that big of a deal, guys. I just- I don’t want to do anything this year. I’ll probably just sleep in and eat junk food all day.”

“And your parents are cool with that?” Jessica wonders. “If I didn’t want to do anything, I know my Dad would still make me have dinner with the family at least.”

“Parents left on a cruise this morning,” you shrug. “They’ll be gone for two weeks.”

A small and cute miniature chocolate cake with white chocolate buttercream, crushed raspberries, and lemon curd inside each layer.

I put the crushed raspberries under the buttercream on top of each layer, to give a little tartness between the frosting and the cake. I was really pleased how this turned out- the cake was moist and rich and delicious, and definitely tasted of DARK chocolate (I used unsweetened cocoa powder). The flavors all played nicely with each other. Raspberry, lemon, and any type of chocolate is so my jam.

(As in, I love it. Not as in, “I make preserves out of it.” That would taste strange and not necessarily good.)

And the lemon curd filling didn’t fail! This was my first time making a filled cake and I was convinced it was gonna fail miserably and it didn’t and I’m still in shock a month and a half later. True story.

Crossing Knives, Chapter 9: Cake, canoodling, cocktails and confusion

Well, as I promised yesterday, here it is at last!

A million thanks to the wonderful @hiddlesnlondon, who gave me all sorts of tips and corrections. Chef Tom is making you a special treat as we speak.

Thank you for reading, commenting, reblogging… just thank you for everything :)

CHAPTER 9: CAKE, CANOODLING, COCKTAILS AND CONFUSION

Every Sunday, exactly at 9pm, a traffic control helicopter flew over the City of London, checking that the peace of the night wasn’t disrupted by a sudden accident or –almost worse– an unexpected traffic jam.

Every Sunday, at 9:03 pm, it flew over the Barbican towers. Three perfectly grey, elegant, monolithic statues raising towards the sky. Of course, the people on board the helicopter didn’t stop to wax poetic about the brutalist buildings. Sometimes one of them looked down and noticed if the lights on the penthouses were lit or not; but, like good Londoners, they didn’t care much about other people’s lives, not even if those other people were rich sods who lived in super expensive luxury flats on top of an architectural wonder.

If they had bothered to look towards Shakespeare Tower (and carry a pair of binoculars) on that particular Sunday, they would have seen a man standing on the balcony of the 42nd floor. A tall blond man, holding a bottle of beer and looking supremely depressed.

Tom emptied the rest of the bottle in one long swig, while his confused brain tried to make some sense of what had happened after dinner. It all started so well, he thought. Second date with Hallie, a home cooked dinner, some jazz music… The modus operandi had been the same he’d used in countless other dates, only this time he was really interested in what his date had to say. At least until she had bolted out, of course. He stood up and staggered towards the sofa, replaying the dinner over and over in his head and wondering what the hell he’d done to make a carefully planned night go to shit.

I went to London this week and had a lovely high tea at One Aldwych. The theme was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Check out the lovely menu cards: I had the Gloop family and my hubby the Beauregarde family.

The savoury part: from left to right a sweet bun filled with coronation chicken salad, rye bread with egg salad, a smoked salmon and herb cheese sandwich, a leek, walnut & cheddar mini quiche and a vegetable mini pie.

My verdict: the coronation chicken was SUPERB. Subtle seasoning, tasted absolutely amazing. The egg salad was boring in comparison. The salmon was lovely. The quiche should have had another type of dough. The dough used was too sweet and too thick and completely overpowered the contents of the quiche. The vegetable pie tasted like julienne soup.

The sweet part: from left to right chocolate caramel milk in a miniature Coca Cola bottle, candy floss, chocolate eggs filled with cheesecake and a mango coulis on top, a raspberry & white chocolate cake pop and lemon meringue pie. Then, in the basket, there were blueberry brioches, scones and chocolate financiers.

My verdict: the chocolate caramel milk was a hit. SO so good. The candyfloss, too, was a revelation. I loved the flavour and the texture. The chocolate eggs… Lovely idea, poor execution. The chocolate egg shell was way too thick and the opening too narrow to comfortably spoon out the cheesecake and coulis (which tasted wonderful). The cake pop looked great but tasted boring. Way too dry and pretty tasteless. The lemon meringue pie, though… Oh my, my mouth starts watering just thinking about it again. Yum! The blueberry brioches were once again too dry - needed a thick layer of clotted cream and jam to make them palatable, which is a shame. A brioche should be nice and moist. The scones were lovely, though, and those chocolate financiers, yum, I could have eaten about a MILLION of those! They just melt into your mouth, and their flavour was just perfect.

Oh, and guess what? I drank chocolate tea with this. Yep, a tea that really smells like chocolate :-) And another thing: you can eat as much of everything as you like. So if you want more coronation chicken or candy floss, you only have to ask :-)

@hazelandglasz, I’d recommend this place if you ever want to take high tea in London :-)

I fucking love Antique Bakery. I love the plot, I love the subplot, I love the characters and I LOVE the food. 

The one dessert that caught my eye was the Anja cake. It’s a tart rhubarb cake with a fresh raspberry mousse.

Unfortunately, no one around me is currently selling rhubarb, so I decided to go with a savory spiced apple cake. 

get psyched nerds, we gon’ make some fancy fuckin cake.

~

The Anja
(serves: 6 cakes plus a fuckton of extra raspberry mousse)

-

Ingredients for Raspberry Mousse-

  • 5 cups of fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 egg whites
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons unflavored powdered gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract*

*I use bourbon vanilla extract but you can use any. 

-

Ingredients for Savory Apple Cake-

  • 1 cup of apples, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ beaten eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ vegetable oil

-

Ingredients for Assembly-

  • chopped white chocolate
  • 6 raspberries
  • 3 pinches of sea salt

~

Procedure for Mousse-

  • Aight, take the water and the gelatin and mix that shit together, then let it sit and harden and whatevs.
  • Then take like ½ cup of the sugar and the raspberries and throw that shit in a blender. Puree it like it called you a dingle-dork. 
  • After that, put that puree through a sieve so you can get the seeds out. If some seeds are still chillin in the puree when you’re done, don’t flip a shit be cool dawg it’s ok.
  • Microwave the gelatin mixture for 10 seconds and then mix that biz into the puree.
  • Now, fill a pot with water and bring it to a simmer. Put the egg whites and the rest of the sugar in a metal bowl and put the bowl on top of the water. Beat that shit until it becomes warm to touch.
  • Then, remove the bowl from the heat and use an electric mixer to beat the eggs and sugar till it becomes stiff and glossy like an anime boy’s peen.
  • Fold the egg mixture into the raspberry puree and combine it gently so you don’t fuck up the eggs.
  • Then beat the heavy cream and the vanilla with the electric mixer till it forms stiff peaks.
  • Fold that shit into the puree/egg thingy until it’s nice and creamy. Then pour that biz into wherever you want. I used a cake tin because I fuckin felt like it.
  • Let it refrigerate overnight if you can, but if you can’t, 4 hours will do.

-

Procedure for Cake-

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F
  • Mix the apples, cinnamon and vanilla together in a small bowl. Damn, that was easy. You proud of yoself son? You should be.
  • Mix the flour, baking soda and eggs in another bowl, and mix the sugar, oil and eggs in a third bowl.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the egg mixture and make sure to combine that shit like you mean it.
  • Folk in the apples while you think about how fuckin adorable Eiji Kanda is. What a precious nerd.
  • Spray some small ramekins or a muffin tin and fill up 6 of those lil nuggets.
  • Bake that shit for like an hour, or just bake it until you can poke a toothpick into the middle of the cake and it comes out clean.
  • Take em out and let them cool down for like an hour or more if you can.
  • Once they’re cool, remove them from their ramekins/tins.

-

Assembly-

  • Place the cake on a plate and sprinkle a TEENY bit of sea salt on top to add more savory-ness to the lil shit.
  • Using a cookie-cutter, cut the mousse into circular shapes and use a rubber spatula to lift them and place them atop each cake
  • Sprinkle white chocolate onto the cakes and add a raspberry to each.
  • look at the lil cake thing in pride. How fuckin gourmet do you feel right now? So fuckin gourmet.

The first time they got left alone together to "start learning more about each other" Sam accosted Bucky, tied him up and threw him in the walk in closet

Sam and Bucky not seeing eye to eye on ANYTHING. Tbh, their families are basically running the show but the few decisions they DO get to make, they disagree on. “I want vanilla cake with white chocolate frosting and raspberry filling” “That’s nice, but we’re getting a different one.” “Who put you in charge?” “My family is paying”

“i want red roses”

“you’re so boring”

“i’d rather be boring than a dick”

“that’s one more dick than you’re gonna get so…”

Tuesdate with hubby this morning. After a couple rides we ate at the Beauty and the Beast restaurant called Rose Taverne. Poutine flatbread, enchanted cauliflower sandwich, and grey stuff gateau (white chocolate mousse and red velvet cake with a raspberry center).

Jack’s favorite thing about this restaurant is that they can kiss here. Not make out like desperate teenagers showing off at the mall. Just–Jack is eating his plum crostata and Bitty is enjoying his flourless chocolate cake. He can look up, lean across the table, and kiss his boyfriend.

A kiss like that isn’t a boast or a claim. It’s a promise, soft and sure: we’ll go home tonight together.

I had a cake order for this weekend, and behold! This is what I made: a three layer chocolate cake with raspberry jam filling, rose tinted buttercream frosting and topped with chocolate ganache drizzled raspberries with white fondant flower decoration. 

My cake orders are few and far between, (mostly because I’m back in school now and don’t really have time to take on orders) but I am really proud with how this cake turned out. The beginning of this cake making project began catastrophically, actually- I was initially to design a cake with chocolate ganache drips down the side, similar to a cake I made at pastry arts school. However, the pairing with swiss meringue buttercream didn’t seem to work… pouring piping hot chocolate ganache onto the masked cake just made everything slide off. I scraped everything off and began again, churning up thicker spreadable frosting and waiting until the ganache cooled for a drizzle effect onto the fruit topping. Goes to show that giving up isn’t ever an option!

MC finding a stray kitten.

AGH I never imagined I’d write one of these imagine things but I do enjoy them. They’re easier and faster than full on prose, and seem like a good drafting tool.

[YOOSUNG]

  • He had been saving up for a date over some time now.
  • Did research and found the CUTEST little tea shop, because you once said you “wanted to go somewhere” in between classes.
  • It was a bit out of the way but w/e you deserve the best
  • -his wallet tho ;_; rip-
  • Although he insists you order whatever you want, you don’t want to make him eat ramen and kimchi for the rest of the year. You settle for a little slice of cake.
  • Raspberry champagne with white chocolate. ~IT’S. SO. GOOD.~
  • Yoosung had ordered a bit of key lime pie and coffee, but was happier watching you eat.
  • ?Would he be jealous if you said you loved him as much as you loved this cake?
  • (Probably).
  • Mid-bite you sort of stop and stare intently out the window.
  • did your internal server crash. were you undergoing system maintenance. wats wrong. boyfren is concern.
  • “Um… MC? Is something the matter?”
  • “I think I saw a cat.”
  • You say you’ll be right back and rush out of the cafe, leaving your bag on your chair.
  • Yoosung had started to get up to run after you, but realized he still had to foot the bill and that people were staring.
  • how mortifying.
  • Eventually Yoosung catches up to you with your bag in his hand
  • He’s scratching the back of his head and pouting kind of a lot
  • in fact he looks pretty annoyed.
  • “Hey, where’d you go?”
  • His negative thoughts evaporate when he sees you and your big, watery eyes.
  • “Yoosung, I think she’s malnourished”
  • You were crouched near the tiniest black ball of fluff
  • You had taken the lid off a plastic cup (when did you get that??) and were trying to coax the little thing to drink some water
  • I mean, he feels for the poor thing but “MC… we already have Lisa.”
  • Your lower lip wibbles.
  • Your cat Lisa gets a little sister.
  • The kitten ends up loving “daddy” more than it loves you.
  • They snuggle every night for warmth.
  • 707 starts coming to your house a little too often and you have to stop Yoosung from beating him up.
  • Yoosung is a proud cat dad in the messenger and Zen wants to quit the RFA.
