I had another failure yesterday. I tried to make the Sour Cream Cake with Cocoa Filling from The Simple Art of Perfect Baking. The recipe looked tempting because the cake had a double glaze. Sadly, it broke apart coming out of the pan. I put some in a tupperware and gave the rest away, as it's still perfectly edible and delicious.
I'm not a stupid baker. Usual i'm careful and meticulous. I think my heart hasn't been in my baking the past week; school is really busy and my increased stress seems to have the power to curdle frosting and eviscerate cakes.
While I try to recuperate and take a little time to myself, I'll treat you to an old photo of the Pisto Manchego from Jose Andres's Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America.
There you go.
