This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is cook’s choice.
I got my book out and picked out Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake!
It was exactly what I was looking for!
I had a few hours to myself! That never happens!
I had all the ingredients! That never happens either!
I danced in glee as I planned to bake a cake while watching Water for Elephants.
I felt so indulgent!
What could go wrong!!!
While searching for the recipe for this week’s cook’s choice I had a few books open at the same time and I picked a recipe from the wrong book!
Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake is actually from another Dorie Greenspan book… Baking-From My Home To Yours.
I got carried away watching Water for Elephants while texting a colleague trying to wrap my head around foot fetishes for an upcoming session (what can I say… work hazzard!).
I lost track of the time and took the cake out earlier than I should have.
I was convinced my efforts had been wasted!
But I decided to persevere with somewhat lowered expectations.
And I’m glad I did…
Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake actually turned out… well… Perfect!
It looked amazing!
It tasted amazing!
Can’t wait to see what the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie group picked for their cook’s choice recipe!
