My husband loves creme brulee. So when it comes to his birthday, the thought of making him a creme brulee dessert will come to my mind very naturally. Except I have never made him one! Well, birthday is about cakes. We could do creme brulee some other time. And I decided to go with a creme brulee crepe cake for his birthday this year.
We had an amazing summer! A lot of good memories to tag along when we were getting ready for the new school year. So here we are. All getting back to school and work. Well, I know, it sucks! But when you realize that your kids are staying up late for too many nights, watching too much television, making too much trouble, being too annoying to their parents, it’s time to look forward to school.
One of the most pleasing dessert flavor combinations is chocolate and green tea, I would say. Green tea is very lovable, and chocolate, oh who doesn’t like chocolate?! Wait, my 7-year-old son! He is the only kid I’ve ever come across who doesn’t like chocolate, in any forms. Candies, cupcakes, cake pops, ice cream… NO! NO CHOCOLATE! Except my lava cake, the one and only chocolate related food that he will eat. And of course no green tea. He hates it!
How much does it cost to have a molten lava cake at a high-end restaurant? Too much! Imagine if you could easily make this at home with a few inexpensive ingredients. No hassle but incredibly crowd-pleasing! Would you do that?
I guess I am having some sort of post-vacation depression. We came back from our California road trip over a week ago, back to baking, back to taking orders, back to our routines, just back to normal. Last night I suddenly realized that kids are going back to school in less than two weeks. And that slight anxiety attack hit me right in the head! Maybe that also means summer is going to be over soon. How sad!
