Alannah made a simple dessert cake, deliberately opting for a flat knife buttercream finish. We set it on the beautiful vintage cake plate Rebecca sent. This could be considered the 20 part of the 80/20 plan, wherein we gravitate towards Paleo and all natural most all the time.
Except when we don't. : ) That could either make you send up a cheer for being "real" or bemoan my inconsistency and compromises. Either way - it looks lovely on the cake plate. Humor me.
Shortly after this afternoon of baking we ran across this book which we agreed may be our next investment. After years and years of elaborate cake making on her part, Alannah was drawn to the simple, organic appeal of Naked Cakes. We are anxious to see more. Since there is not really a full '20' for me, a very promising read is My Paleo Patisserie. Those two are on our short list for summer dessert adventures.
