I love smaller sized cupcakes and these organic carrot bites are even more tempting baked in colorful Parisian paper pleats --Bleu, Blanc, Rouge, of course!
It took several batches to perfect this recipe: not too sweet and very lush and light. Toasted almonds add a delicate crunch and a zing of fresh lemon zest make for a VERY addictive frosting. I'll post the recipe on my website tomorrow.
Meanwhile, come by and sample these treats all day...with bubbly and other French goodies.
What to do with the leftover loaf after the dinner party? One solution is this:
Slice it nice and thin,
Place on a baking sheet,
Stir some cumin into a little bit of olive oil with a dash of salt,
Lightly brush the slices with the cumin oil,
Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes, until golden.
And voila! The best tasting crackers for crostini or cheese at your fingertips.
Or, you if you have a little extra time on your hands, you can also make an Haute Couture outfit:
This was a one in a series of outfits photographed by Ted Sabarese, collaborating with designer, Ami Goodheart of SOTU Productions for a project called "Hunger Pains", based on the models food cravings.
