The entertainment industry was today warning fans of the popular HBO series Game Of Thrones to avoid ‘at all costs’ a series of books by a rogue enthusiast named George R.R. Martin, who has written five whole volumes consisting solely of spoilers for the popular television show.

“This man is dangerous and wants to ruin everyone’s enjoyment of a much-loved fantasy drama.” said executive producer D. B. Weiss. “It’s a sad symptom of today’s ‘binge’ culture that people can’t just wait and enjoy things as they are released. They want everything at once.”

I've got to try this cake. It's just so pretty.

Boozy caramel Cinnamon roll cake

Egg yolk Sponge cake From Daily Delicious
Double this recipe to fill 4 18cm round cake tins.
( left overs are too eat^_^)

Ingredients:

80g cake flour
60g corn flour
4 large eggs
4 egg yolks
100g caster sugar
3g pink sea salt
1 tbsp clear vanilla extract
125g rice bran oil
125g Melted butter, melted and warm

Pre heat oven to 190C. Sift your corn flour and cake flour over large bowl twice.
Line your 4 greased 18cm pan with baking paper.
Combine oil and butter in a jug. 
In a stand mixer whip the eggs, yolks, sugar and salt until it is triple in size and forms a thick pale ribbon.
Add vanilla and beat again.
Sieve over flour and fold into the egg mix.
Pour butter/oil mix down the side of the bowl in three stages. Fold it in while turning the bowl at the same time.
Pour into your lined pans, try to get them as even as possible.
Once in the oven turn the heat down to 170C and cook for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Once fully baked, invert to cool on a wire rack.

Butter scotch sauce adapted from Nigella Lawson
50g light brown sugar
20g raw caster sugar
180 golden syrup
45g butter
100g flavoured butterscotch thicken cream
40ml Bourbon

In a sauce pan melt caster sugar, brown sugar, syrup over low heat for 6 minutes. Bring to gentle boil for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat source and whisk in thicken cream.
Set sauce aside until needed.

Brown sugar meringues
 
3 egg whites
180g brown sugar
Pinch of salt

Pre heat oven to 120c. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
In a large bowl whip on high with an electric mixer till soft peaks. On medium speed add your brown sugar one table spoon at time whisking well between each addition.
Place tablespoons of egg mix on trays. Any shape will do.
Bake in oven for 1 hour and half. Turn oven off and leave the door slightly open to finish drying out.   

Assembly

One cake recipe
One cinnamon roll recipe from the Pioneer woman  (I did not post this as everyone has their fave recipe; I used the Pioneer’s woman’s one. Make it ON THE DAY you serve it to prevent the problem I had. Simply cool to room temp and top it on the cake when ready)
Two batches of butter scotch recipe
One meringue recipe
Stabilized Whipped cream ( Whip 500ml of cold thick cream and one bloomed sheet of gelatin to soft peaks)
Pecans (optional)

Place on cake at the base of your cake plate. Spread with whipped cream; making a shallow dam in the middle. Pour 50ml of butterscotch in this dam. Crush your brown sugar meringue in large pieces on top the cream and butter scotch. Repeat for all 3 layers.
Place cinnamon roll on the top of the cake (you with have the cream to help it stick)
Transfer to fridge for 30 minutes.
Serves with more butter scotch sauce and top with pecans.

+Capin Chip and I went to the Alamo Drafthouse tonight to see The Winter Soldier. In the lobby they had this get-up and a framed window to take a pic of yourself as the "Boy with Apple" from the new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel. Well...who could resist? :)

Story
Introduction
I am silly, fun-loving and tactile. I wear glasses. I have freckles across the back of my shoulders.

I am stubborn, loyal and creative. I like Monty Python.

I am a geek, a traveler, a food snob, a reader, a woman, a child, a lover and a gamer.

I love to travel. I love to stay at home. I am ambitious, I am a dreamer, I am a visionary, I am lazy, I am unmotivated. I want to live off of the land and be wholly self-sufficient, and yet...I love technology.

I can't refuse chocolate. I want to be thin and healthy but I don't need to be a Barbie doll.

I am sarcastic, witty and I like puns.

I love to read. I read sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, classic literature, suspense, biographies, poetry, satire, editorials, and anything else that catches my eye, including the back of the cereal box.

I love music.  I was raised on musicals, classical and Queen. Some favorites include Warren Zevon, Robert Earl Keene, King Crimson, XTC just to name a few.

I like movies, and have fairly simple criteria for what makes a movie good; either it makes me cry, it makes me laugh, it makes me think, or it hits so close to home it's painful. And then there's the occasional things that just grab me for reasons I can't even pinpoint, like Goonies, The Princess Bride, Unbreakable and RHPS. And, of course, the Lord of the Rings movies and the Harry Potter movies.

I don't watch a lot of TV. Most of the things I've loved are no longer showing, things like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, X-Files, Angel and Dollhouse. If you love something don't let me watch it. I am the death knell to good shows.

I like Iron Chef, and most anything on the Food Network. I'm a Food Network, History Channel, and Discovery Channel junkie. I dare not even watch those channels for fear of getting sucked in for the entire day!

I love the theater, ballet, and opera. Shakespeare in particular.

I love power tools.

I believe in faeries, dragons, integrity, friendship, beauty, honesty, open-mindedness, laughter, equality, pride, education, self-responsibility, animal rights, magic, embracing your inner child, introspection, loyalty, and love.

I love thunderstorms, candlelight, sushi, oysters, the ocean, music, flouncy dresses, Cherry Dr Peppers, rain, bonfires, Europe, intellectual stimulation, hot showers, full body massages, bookstores, nonconformists, gemstones (especially garnets), huge fluffy bath towels, women not afraid of their own intellect, tea, genuine people, and coffee.

I loathe willful ignorance, Microsoft (okay, I just get frustrated with MS, I don't really hate them), habitual cattiness, betrayal, meanness, pretentiousness, censorship, dishonesty, animal abuse, trendy boy bands, repression of minorities, conformity, Bush (the "president," not the band or the body part), shallowness, misogyny, hypocritical Christians (redundant?), intolerance, stupid prejudices (race, religion, gender, sexuality), pettiness, organized religion, duplicity, cowardice, supposition, blatant hypocrisy,reality TV and the fact that I've read every Xanth novel ever written.
