Today I am mentally skipping over the Atlantic back to my home…Cape Cod. And I am dedicating this post to my best friend, other half, the most wonderful woman in the world, my twin sister. She is a pastry chef and cake designer that I like to call a « Mad pastry Scientist »! I also like to refer to her as the one Cape Cod Foodie, since I am not sure if the « foodie » movement has gotten over the Sagamore bridge yet. And as for the mad scientist bit…she really does look like she’s in a slightly off-kilter bliss when she’s whipping up some new concoction in her kitchen or at the restaurant where she works on Cape Cod. It’s like she puts her whole heart and soul into whatever she is creating. And I can testify that when you eat something she has made, you are happy and satisfied!
What’s even more amazing is that she teaches herself everything she does. And she has an incredible capacity for marrying different flavors together. Gifted in such a way that complimenting flavors come to her like inspiration for a painter, she always tries to create more complex palettes while retaining a harmony. She plays with textures and colors as well. She is in fact an artist, and has just translated those talents into the medium of food.I am always amazed by what she can do.
Her business on Cape Cod, MA, USA specializes in cake and cookie orders. She makes wedding cakes, birthday cakes, any occasion cakes, cookies, pastries…all created with love an a little madness!
