Taste of Fiction

Taste of Fiction is a culinary event at downtown Central Library .  Pastry Chefs choose a book to interpret with sweets and we chose The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.
NPR:The Invention of Wings

I was fortunate to help Anne and Angela and they taught me how to make inedible cakes.

We also provided small tastings of sweet cream gelato with madeira apples, cornmeal shortbread, and candied pecans.
It was so good and one guy was heard confessing that he had eaten 10 already.

What do you do with a giant inedible cake?  I don't know, but i wasn't willing to put it in the dumpster.  I thought it would be fun to have it as a centerpiece on the kitchen table.  Sort of like the doily and decorative bowl my mom has.
