Something I CAN"T do

eat cake

People always commend me (or tease me) about all the things I know how to do...asking if there's anything I can't do...well there is.


It might seem silly to you, but I have ancestors that were candy's supposed to be in my blood!. And I LOVE candy...the traditional types. Caramel, taffy, peppermints, nougat!!!

This was supposed to be my post abouth the torrone di pistacchi (pistachio nougat.) But my nougat never solidified and because I used some raw honey it was really brown. I ended up with a gooey yumminess with an obvious earthy flavoring of baklava!!!! mmmmmm

I attempted to salvage it by slathering it onto an apple honey cake...but alas, the cake was over baked a wee bit, and fell flat and dense instead of the promised light and fluffiness in the recipe. It's edible though.

If I ever do buy some torrone di pistacchi, I'll let you know how it tastes.
