Well, the cake is not done yet. Here is some brioche I made recently though, for the Shavuout holiday. I have come to the conclusion that Rose's Brioche Recipe is the best! I have made several versions of brioche from 'The Bread Baker's Apprentice' and Rose's is just all that much better.
This is about as far as I got tonight. Mis en place! I'll have to try and finish tomorrow.
And here are some random flowers from our new neighborhood. I was disappointed to see that the fancy big suburban supermarket in our new dig has mostly cake mixes, whereas the overcrowded urban store in our old brooklyn neighborhood had what I can consider now a nice selection of baking supply goods.
Rose! If you are reading this, we still are only 1/2 hour drive from brooklyn in West Hempstead, LI! You are welcome to drop by anytime. :)
