I’ve been planning these beautiful cakes for a week now, adding new ideas day by day. It seems that lately I find the night to be the moment when I’m most inspired and I often get out of bed just to write down an idea so I won’t forget in the morning. That is what happened with the muesli base and the coconut tuile. If you’d see the papers I’m taking notes on, it would scare you. They’re full of adnotations, changes, drawings, scribbling, but for some reason I find them to be beautiful and they make so much sense to me. I often keep the original papers too, even though I re-write the recipe on a special notebook I made for my favorite recipes or on my blog. It’s just feels wrong to throw them away, they are part of the process through I create cakes and keeping them means that I can always can go back and make additional changes if I want to.
One of the fondest memories growing up was all the canning my mother did during the summer. We always had so much goodies to open in the winter. Plum kompot is definitely a favorite I remember. It’s surprisingly extremely simple and quick to can. You will have this delicious homemade plum punch during the winter.
