This week in the bakery… we're all over the news

This week was a busy one. There was going to the store to pick up this issue of Easy Food magazine, with a nice mention of Caryna's Cakes baking classes...

Followed by another trip to the store to pick up this month's issue of Irish Bride magazine, with a nice photo spread of Niamh and Francois' wedding. Niamh's lovely mother Pauline baked these fruit cakes for the happy occasion and designed a Google-themed cake with a bride who loves running and cycling, and a groom who is writing a sic-fi novel. 

Cake of the month is a 2014 initiative. Here's how we are rolling: every month I introduce a limited edition cake. You can order it whole by contacting or buy it by the slice at the Dublin Food Co-op on Saturdays, the Dublin Flea market on the last Sunday of the month, and at those independent coffee shops being supplied by Caryna's Cakes. February is a fine one indeed - Strawberry Meringue Cake. 
The base is a vanilla sponge with pureed strawberries folded in. Halfway through baking, a topping of soft meringue crowns the cake and what emerges from the oven is light yet wholesome and rustic

Irish Countrywomen's Association 
I have written about my love and appreciation for the Irish Countrywomen's Association. These ladies are a class act. Although I am no longer a member (purely due to scheduling conflicts) I was asked to return for an evening Cake Decorating demonstration. 

One of the Valentine's themed projects was personalized fortune cookies. The women were asked to write something nice about someone else in the room and were then folded into fortune cookies and served at random. Here's a fortune from Milltown ICA to me (and you), "Always cheerful and positive"
