Winter, you fiend. For the past week you have determined to hurt my face whenever I ventured outside, your polar fingers creeping through my coat and tickling my skin, making me shiver. I go nowhere without my mittens, sometimes even wearing them indoors.
Some may be lucky enough to escape to warmer climes during your moodiest months, but The Summerland Bakers have another plan in which to defeat you. We will beat you back with such BLATANT EXTRAVAGANCE that you will crumble before us, the buds of Spring breaking through the shattered ice sheathe of your chest. Ha! Take that.
Plan of Attack: Operation Full Fat February!
- When: This Thursday, February 13, Approximately 6:30pm
- Where: Okanagan Crush Pad (the addition of wine to our complex strategy of decadence will catch Winter unaware. Drinking rosé in winter is like unleashing a forest of hidden Summer cavalry).
- What to bring: Bake anything decadent you like. (Full Fat February guideline: Even the thought of it should make you equally delighted and afraid). Show and tell: Bring your favourite cookbook with recipes you rarely dare to make.
So far it looks like we will be sampling some truly fabulous desserts:
- Caramel Pecan Ice Cream cake
- Red Velvet Cake
- Lemon Meringue Pie
- Black Forest Cupcakes
