John Main, master coach—pastry chef? John created the confection pictured below this weekend from scratch, his recipe. It’s a Cannoli Cake, comprised of four layers of orange liqueur-laced sponge cake, each separated by a sweet, cannoli cheese filling. The cake is topped with vanilla cream frosting and chocolate garnish. He wouldn’t give up the recipe, but apparently you can find a decent approximation here. It was delicious. And no, it isn’t Paleo friendly.
Melody got creative this weekend, too. She wrote a lab report on oxidation-reduction reactions and the interconversion of some terpenes, but the picture we took of that didn’t turn out so well.
Why are we showing you this? To implore you (and remind ourselves) to find time to do the things you really enjoy, as often as possible. We’re not all work and exercise, and you shouldn’t be either.
