And Birthday Cake is one of my favorite things on the planet. When it was knocked out of the Jezebel Cake vs. Pie Tournament I was much more upset than was reasonable.
One great thing about getting older is that our peers are now in charge of things. Whether it’s media or food, most everything is made in new and inventive ways, usually reflecting what we loved growing up. Momofuku pastry chef Christina Tosi is a perfect example.
I am willing to bet she also had sleep overs that involved a shared messy bowl of raw cake batter (or were my friends and I particularly indulgent?). Well, at least I assume she got to lick the spoon in the kitchen.
These truffles are a delicious way to relive those days and economical compared to the pricey but awesome whole cakes on offer.
