The Cream of the Crop
Monthly Archives: February 2017
I have never been more grateful for 12 hour tech days in my life. I recently stared at my computer with the daunting task of going through and editing folders of food pictures. PLURAL. FOLDERS. It was scary. So many things…so little time……or so I thought. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts I’m in rehearsals for a show in New York and spare time has been hard to come by. However, when preparing lights and sound for a show before it opens, there’s anywhere from 1-3 days that everyone has hours of down time while they’re not on stage. Bringing a book is encouraged on these days. For me, it was the perfect time to sit in a corner when I wasn’t needed and edit the pictures of all the delicious things I’ve baked in the past few weeks. It was glorious. And by the beginning of day two, everything was done!!! I patted myself on the back, and felt a huge stress melt away. Another way I deal with stress? Eating. Like these doughnuts.
Guys, I love sleep. I’ve been working and rehearsing, and BAKING! Yes BAKING! a lot the past few weeks. But while I’m usually down to work on this into the wee hours of the night, my schedule hasn’t allowed me this privilege lately unless I want to go mad. I’ve been able to keep up almost everything in my life, but to get enough sleep to keep functioning like a human being, editing and writing these posts have had to be the sacrifice. I’ve made so many things recently and I can’t wait to share them all. So I’m kicking off what I hope to be a string of more consistent posts with these Tiramisu Cakes! One of the handful of projects I made on my grown-up snow day a few weeks ago when an epic blizzard hit NYC. I was in the midst of my Italian inspiration too.
