Something about Moore’s work just gets to me.
KC 1 – Cinnamon from Gracie’s Bakery. Wonderful homemade style braided king cake with a hint of almond.
KC 2 – Cinnamon from Monkey Monkey. I’ll wait for this standalone bakery to get it’s practice in before buying a cake next year. This one was a little dense, as if the 2nd rise didn’t quite take.
KC 3 – Cinnamon from La Louisiane. First work King Cake of the season, and it was tasty but maybe a tiny bit stale. But this is one of those cakes that is sold at 2nd party retailers so that happens.
KC 4 – cream cheese from Brennans? I think. I went to a party last night and they had slices of king cake on a tray. One of the hostesses told me that Brennans had produced the baked goods so I’m sure it’s a catering option. It was a little stale as one would expect from a pretty sliced king cake sitting out. But the cream cheese filling was very tasty and the perfect ratio.
Other 1 – Bro4 left a bottle of Abita King Cake soda in my fridge last year… year before? Saying “it’s really bad.” So I popped it open when my family was at my house for Epiphany this year. Think creme soda with cinnamon flavoring. I served it in shot glasses. The 10 year old niece and my 78 year old mom liked it best. Both saying it was really sweet.
Other 2 – king cake cotton candy by Poof. Disturbingly accurate
January’s theme (minus last week which I kept on December because lazy) is depictions of 20th century families
I don’t remember seeing a pointillist work by Picasso before. So interesting to see his early style.
More snowy suburbs… so different than his Tahitian scenes
A very merry Christmas to you all! Or happy holidays or whatever you wish to celebrate.
Enjoy a snowy Norman Rockwell scene.
