Let's get "Baked."

I just discovered a "new frontier." While I was perusing the kitchen gadgets at Crate and Barrel last weekend (cake testers, orange paring knives - love it!) I was completely taken by their display for the cookbook: Baked - New Frontiers in Baking. Propped right next to the autumn cupcake liners and kitchen torches the book practically called to me. The photography is gorgeous, the recipes unique and the overall theming is rustic yet completely polished. (What can I say, I have a thing for the antler motif?!) 

Some standout recipes include: Rootbeer Bundt Cake, Homemade Marshmallows and the Sweet and Salty Cake. This weekend I think I'll try my hand at the Rootbeer Bundt Cake. I can honestly say that I've never had a sweet treat using that flavor and I'm intrigued by it. Next up...homemade marshmallows - with the hope that I can perfect them just in time for hot cocoa season!

Happy Baking!

  1. Dang me...That rootbeer Bundt Cake is no bunt at all...it's a home run! I made it and used real root beer extract and it is now a flavor flave of mine. But, I think it could use ice cream. Yes, everything is just better with the cream of the gods!
