I am not the best cook- I actually leave a lot of the fancier, savory cooking to Andrew who seems to have developed a keen interest and knack for whipping up dinners for us (lucky girl, right?) I however am a pretty darn good baker. I have always loved baking, perhaps because I find it to be a bit more joyful and therapeutic (I cannot stand handling raw meat, like, it’s bordering on a phobia…but buttercream? SURE THING!) Baking also can also be incrediblly aesthetic, colorful and pretty- so really it’s more up my alley. The decorating of the food world (perhaps cooking is more the architecture? Am I going too far in my analogies here?) So when I saw this speckled egg cake I just about keeled over. I really want to try to make this, alas, my cake decorating skills are still a bit on the juvenile side. My delicate splatters would probably end up looking more Jackson Pollack than this. But how darling is this for an Easter table???
I would have a hard time cutting it. If I could, I imagine the inside would be something lemon-y and maybe coconut-y? Can you tell I have a major sweet tooth?
A cake like this deserves to be the showpiece and so I thought I’d create a whole table setting based on this very cake. Classic robin’s egg blue mixed with natural accents and white is the perfect holiday table color scheme. I adore it.
