The August 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Elissa of 17 and Baking. For the first time, The Daring Bakers partnered with Sugar High Fridays for a co-event and Elissa was the gracious hostess of both. Using the theme of beurre noisette, or browned butter, Elissa chose to challenge Daring Bakers to make a pound cake to be used in either a Baked Alaska or in Ice Cream Petit Fours. The sources for Elissa’s challenge were Gourmet magazine and David Lebovitz’s “The Perfect Scoop”.
Call me a loser but I didn’t do it. I had all intentions to complete this because it was my birthday month and petite fours would have been perfect little birthday cakes for me. But when it came around to that time the last thing I wanted was to be in the kitchen.
This is ridiculous. Seriously I have no other excuse but to say simply that “life got in the way.”
