The Summer Solution | Domestic B(i)atch

7.21.17

We are in the thick of summer right now, and while a lot of ladies have the option to throw their hair up in a ponytail, a messy bun, or fun braids, this is a not-so-much situation for those of us with a pixie cut.  Although I will say I am rocking a pretty cute teeny tiny ponytail to get the hair off my neck right now.  In a relative fashion, my hair is pretty long for me, and especially for the summer. Some projects I’ve been working on in my acting life have prohibited me from chopping it all off, so it’s been hanging in my face and driving me bananas.  So how to get it out of my way and make it stay put? Well, I invested in a curling iron for the first time ever, and haven’t looked back since.  Between my floral maxi and the curly do I’ve been sporting all summer, I don’t know how I  could figure out a better fix to last me through these humid months.

A. Bummer. But once we all lose summer break as adults, birthdays are fair game, and as a summer baby you can make up for lost time ten fold. You win at birthday time of year. There are birthdays at outdoor movies, beach day, patio bar crawl, or what this cake was made for, a picnic! My friend Alice is one of the coolest Brooklyn chicks I know, so of course she decided a picnic with plenty of friends and a table with food and drinks for miles would be the way to go. I wanted to make her a cake, but it’s summer, it’s hot, I’d prefer to not have to turn on the oven. Plus with a busy schedule, being able to make part of the cake beforehand was ideal.  Well pastry cream and fruit curd can check those boxes so after playing around with some flavor combos, I created this ooey gooey delicious crepe cake.
