Another break… maybe for tea?
Another break painting. I had never heard of this artist but I wander if he’s an ancestor of Chef Paul Prudhomme?
I semi-accidentally/semi-purposefully took a break from the art posts last month. So the theme for this month is break.
So yeah this is days late and I think my thighs are now composed of king cake.
2019-15 homemade by a coworker
The chocolate glaze was interesting and he said it was over proofed but still tasty.
2019-16 Gracious Bakery chocolate
I really wanted to buy a nectar one and now I know much of my family is not into chocolate with pastry but I loved the seni-sweet filling. Plus it came with a king cake origin story from a local student writing program.
2019-17 & 18 Nonna Randazzo’s traditional and cream cheese
No photos but my brother and sister in law brought 2 king cakes to the parade route on carnival day. It was so cold that we all needed the extra fuel.
4 weeks and 18 different samples. Yum…. Bring on the crawfish
If you liked last week’s moody Cleo, you’ll love this week’s interpretation.
I get later and later each week. Eleven parades uptown this weekend… my brain is scrambled and my legs are tired.
2019-14: Tartine – cinnamon & cream cheese
The dough was great. The filling was too much for me as usual with cream cheese filled ones.
2019-15: Laurel Street Bakery – traditional
Yummy yummy cinnamon yeasty dough AND the baby was inside the cake instead of the center.
Love the mood of this Cleopatra.
