Book Club Meeting #3
The third book in our book club series is The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I could write a 1000 words on why I loved this book, but I'll save my discussion about it for tomorrow night. My girls are coming over for some appetizers, dessert, and great dialogue and debate about the book. I decided to get a head start on the baking and prepare dessert tonight. I may make some brownies as well tomorrow, but for now, I will share the tea cakes I made. I bought this pan last weekend at our "Gift Card Date Night." I think they turned out cute, but I'm not thrilled with the recipe for the petits fours that came with the pan. They taste fine, but they don't really wow me. I topped the cakes with a rose flavored icing that I think makes up for the cake part being simply acceptable. I may try using a different petits fours recipe next time. We'll see. I'm curious to see how these would turn out with a brownie recipe.
