Beyond coffee shop Danish
The Los Angeles Times    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
"Coffee and Danish": You can't help but think of a stale pot of truck stop brew sitting next to gunky jelly-laden pastry. But that couldn't be further from the original. Sure Denmark is a country that runs on coffee, but rather than the dense lump of dough that we know, their daily cups are accompanied by delicate, flaky, marzipan-filled morsels that we rarely see in America.

For a Bellingham, Wash., bakery, wedding cakes are a labor of love. But two weeks ago, an order came in that was the work of a scammer. Terri Zweber, co-owner of "Our Kitchen Is Your Kitchen," says the order came by e-mail in two weeks ago. "It was for a wedding cake that was to serve 300," says Zweber. "And it was to have silk flowers on top. The cake with shipping and everything was $2500." Zweber says it isn't uncommon to get an e-mail order from out of state. It took her and her staff 45 hours to make it. More

Though it opened in June 2009 and is situated in the heart of town, many people have yet to discover Old Cayucos Bakery & Deli in San Luis Obispo, Calif. Often the easiest way to find the bakery and deli is to look for Mary Ellen Eisemann's 1949 Chevy Deluxe, which is usually parked outside. More

The cupcake is dead. Long live the whoopee!
The Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When it comes to the delightful world of comfort baking, we have an awful lot to thank the Americans for. Whether it's the Barefoot Contessa baking velvety chocolate cake and nutty brownies (did you see that one? God bless the Food Network) with copious amounts of butter sticks and thick heaps of frosting, or Carrie Bradshaw and co biting into perfectly iced cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery, the Americans somehow have a way with cake that is so much more indulgent than our pristine British afternoon teas of dainty Victoria sponges and lemon drizzles.

Sharon Advocate    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Key limes are much different than the familiar green Persian limes. "Real Key lime is yellow," said Brenda Moreland, who works at the Cake Box Bakery in Canton, Ohio. Key limes also are smaller, and their flavor is very tart, bordering on bitter. The distinctive taste and aroma make them a prized ingredient for culinary use. More
