Favorite Food Quotes

Favorite Food QuotesI was going to go all alliterate on you and title this “Favorite Food Quotes for Fathers”, but two things occurred to me. First, food quotes are not just for fathers anymore. And second, that would pigeonhole this timeless little gem of a post as something seasonal and we don’t want that, do we? No, we don’t. We want to be able to refer to its wisdom time and time throughout the year as our whims dictate.

But Father’s Day is just around the corner, so I wanted to throw in the seasonal shout out. Yo, Dads out there! Fire up the grill and get your grill on.

Is it fair that Dads and guys in general get the grill stereotype thrown at them all the time? And what about us feministas? Can we not throw a little sizzle on that shizzle? If the Enjoli girl could bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan back in the 1970’s, can’t we bring home a Porterhouse and throw it on the grill after marinating it in a nice balsamic glaze in glorious 2015?

Hells yeah, we can!

Okay, so back to the food quotes.

Whilst perusing my favorite time suck pastime of late, Pinterest, I found a bunch of inspirational and tantalizing quotes that I think speak volumes for us all in our communal love of food, and I wanted to share some of them with you.

You can’t properly enjoy your meal if you’re distracted by life. I said that. 😉

That’s how I cook too. I always liked that W.C. Fields.

Also, try standing on one foot and eating a pizza. That works wonders for strengthening your core.

It’s true. And I can say that because I just came from Burger King.

Who are we to disagree with this logic?

So much that you get two quotes and the last word. Because cake.

And this is a bakery blog, after all.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there and happy eating from Alecia Bakery NYC!

Bursts of Color at the End of Summer

We loved making this cake for a private gathering on Long Island a few weeks ago and apparently we did a pretty good job:

“Not only was the cake so freaking f’ing beautiful, it tasted freaking f’in heavenly too! So many cakes are all look and no taste but not your cakes. I cannot thank you enough!!!”

Cake: Coconut

Filling: Dulce de Leche

Buttercream: Passion Fruit

Decorations: sugar paste flowers & edible lace

Size: 9″ round

Servings: 45

 

From a fan…beyond the butter, sugar and flour.

The following unsolicited comment about me and my company have my heart bursting at the seams with joy and pride this morning. THIS is what I hope everyone sees through the butter and sugar:

“Anyone who likes sweets who isn’t trying my friend Lin’s prodigious menu is missing out on something special. Besides baking delicious, artisan cakes, cookies and other delicious stuff, she’s one of the most diligent, hardworking and downright decent people I’ve ever met. She puts a huge amount of care into every aspect of her product AND puts her money where her mouth is with regard to donating a portion of her earnings to pug rescue. Talented, independent artists and small business owners should be lauded and supported in this day and age, and Lin is one of them. I’m proud to count her among my small circle of friends.”

Much love to all of our family, friends and fans, who make our (sometimes round-the-clock) baking marathons worth so much more than words can express. YOU put the smiles on our faces! THANK YOU!
