Until I can work on my digital imaging skills, I’m afraid some of the gobs are going to look an awful lot like some of the other gobs. I mean, really, all you have is my word when it comes to being able to discern if these are indeed a new variety. But you’ll have to trust me on this. And hopefully I haven’t steered you, or your taste buds, wrong yet!
Today we have the Orange Cardamom Ginger Gob with Saffron Frosting. (Pictured above, btw.) The cake halves are scented with ground cardamom and rounded out by orange zest and ginger threads. The frosting has been whipped with my recipe for saffron syrup. I am not prone to boasting – the sake of self-promotion aside, ahem – but these are amazing. Vision-inducing even. Nirvana. Here. Now. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed… but then again your idea of nirvana is possibly quite different than mine!
We also have Strawberry Gobs. I can’t think of summer without thinking of strawberry shortcake, so I decided that I wanted to try to make a gob form of the seasonal classic. What I ended up with is more like a cross between something you would be served at high tea and the traditional strawberry dessert. Bits of fresh strawberries are in the batter as well as the frosting and there’s a hint of lemon to keep things tasting fresh. I think you’ll like them!
And today I also have the Black Cherry Chocolate with Lime Butter Cream Frosting. People keep asking for these so who am I to say no? Enjoy!
