this feels surreal . . . rushing for my evening lap swim, walk my dog, then meet a friend to give a signed bookplate for someone who is terminally ill, a great baker who has all of Rose’s books, yet i may never have a chance to meet in person. my ipod just tuned in with michael crawford wishing you were somehow here again, and Rose just emailed saying she is at the opera. all this happening while making ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Designer Chocolate Baby Grands (page 303), lucuma take.
lucuma ice cream is one favorite native peruvian fruit.
stir 1/2 cup of dehydrated lucuma powder with 1 cup of vanilla ice cream and 1 tsp of vodka. chill overnight, then churn. use an over sized rose petal piping tip and pipe ice cream ruffles on a 20 gram designer baby grand cupcake. freeze till the ice cream has hardened. remove the cupcake wrappers. drizzle lacquer glaze.
