I've gathered the necessaries around me, soon the cake will be done.
For now the house and the world outside are quiet.
Chocolate and sugar, eggs and flour; confectionary creation I delight in your chemistry.
It isn't the art of cakes that I enjoy, truthfully. It's the science behind it, the structure beneath the pretty finish. The composition of flavors, the creation of a cloud of marshmallowy chocolate from such humble things as eggs and sugar cane and cacao.
I'm laughing at myself, because I'm still such a science nerd. But a science nerd that makes a really good cake! ;)
What did your morning look like?
