Aunti-Cakes, Anti-Cakes

November 15, 2004

Baker’s man! Gawd they’re pretty, these (fake) cakes from de Taart van mijn Tante (My Auntie’s Cake/Recipe) displayed in the tea room of the patisserie on the Ferdinand Bolstraat in Amsterdam. My aunties, fabulous cooks and bakers though they are, wouldn’t dream of baking such cakes, too much White Death (sugar). My aunties’ cakes are more likely to be made with persimmons (kaki fruit). Homegrown persimmons.
