Am a hopeless addict when it comes to miniature desserts. Spotted tonight at “The Big Easy in The Big Apple” – a City Harvest charity dinner. Tiny, tiny single bite King Cakes by Delicatessen. Tops brushed in icing, streaked in purple, yellow, and green sugar. Couple with a cocktail, live band and we’re good for the night. Only thing that could have made this better would be finding a plastic baby inside each cake!
Finish with pie: banana cream and double nut bourbon pecan. Then step back out into the winter chill along 29th Street and the east river. All at once eerie and magical.
