quote of the night

Granted it was after a couple glasses of wine, but while discussing the merits of creme brulee and in particular the caramelized topping, Nic explained:

"I like it because it's like putting broken glass in your mouth, but it melts."

There is a cake that I have made which is one that my family has made in the past and it starts with a dense espresso cake, very heavy...and the top layer you take sugar which you melt and pour on wax paper and then let it cool and then break apart - you coat the top of this cake with these broken sugar panes and it literally looks like someone has broken a beer bottle and stuck all the glass on the cake.

shoot...I just spent too much time trying to find a cake like it online without luck. I should make it again sometime. Our family has always called it "amber cake" because the sugar stuff looks like shards of amber.
