My creative tendencies extend outwards to cooking, as well! I love thoughtfully prepared food.
Every year for the summer solstice, I bake a "sun cake." Basically, It's just an upside down cake using seasonal stone fruit (my favorite). In the past, I've used peaches... but this year, I thought, "Hey, why not change it up a bit?" So here we arrive at an upside down cake with nectarines and blackberries. It still looks like a sun, but maybe it's more of a sun setting on the horizon, with those blackberry-stained jewel tones. What a lovely way to end the longest day of the year, with a big slice of cake and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Happy Solstice, y'all!
