Blackberry and Lime Cupcakes | Domestic B(i)atch

8.18.17

How does every week feel like it flies by and also like an eternity to complete.  Same thing with this summer.  June seems like it was ages ago, and yet somehow it’s already mid August? Time, you are a tricky bitch.  At least my friends and I went to the beach this past weekend for the first time together in TWO YEARS once we realized that summer was coming to a close. In New York, getting to any beach is an adventure in itself, so by the time you pick a spot to lie in the sand, you are more than ready to relax.  I think we all needed a beach day. I think we all deserved a beach day.

Blackberry and Thyme Crepe Cake | Domestic B(i)atch

Now to the business at hand, summer birthdays. It must be nice to be a grown-up with a summer birthday.  All through school I remember friends who wouldn’t get to bring cupcakes to class, or have a party easily attended by all the kids because it fell between June and the beginning of September.  What. 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.

I have made a deal with myself to have no less than four bottles of rose in my fridge at all times until October. I love warm weather, I love the sunshine. I enjoy living in a  place with real seasons, and can deal with the winter, but I definitely prefer temperatures 65 degrees and up. It’s when everyone wants to be outside, picnics in Central Park, shorts, rompers and as I mentioned, rose all day. Berries become a staple in dessert, and I cannot wait to start making pies filled with juicy strawberries and rhubarb.  Sometimes carting a whole pie around to a friend’s BBQ or picnic can be burdensome.  So why not make some handheld versions? Rompers + handpies = you being the classiest spring chick on the block.
