A Naked Cake with Currants
I don’t know if this is weird or not, but prior to making this naked cake, I had never tasted a currant. The bride requested red and black currants as her requested decor for the cake, and luckily her wedding date happened to fall right in the middle of the short season we have for currants in New York. Lucky for me, I was able to purchase plenty of extras so I could eat handfuls (and handfuls) of them after the wedding cake delivery was made. Gosh, they’re delicious and such a different tasting fruit…I’d try to describe what I like so much about their flavor, but I just can’t put my finger on what it is…perhaps it’s just that it’s a new delicious flavor I’m not used to tasting. Anywho, the conclusion: I love currants. And I loved getting to work on this cake, and with this lovely client.
