A baker who happens to decorate…

…describes the kitchen creativity side of me.

Today, I am determined to create a vasilopita for one of my brothers-in-law.  I love the texture that slow rising in the refrigerator gives breads.  I’ll find out in the morning whether it was successful with this formula (which seemed unusually dense for any bread dough.  I’m sure absent-mindedness had something to do with it.  Oh, well.  I’ve made out a new shopping list just in case it doesn’t turn out and I need to try it again.  I’m not sure how significant the bread will be if it isn’t received ON New Year’s Day or New Year’s Eve.
