I made sure all my baking ingredients were fresh, etc, but oddly, it had no flavor. Anxious to give your beautiful cake a try. One question though, how do you dust the sides of your cake or do you. Since the white chocolate is so fragile, how do you get it on the sides? I suppose I could search the web, but thought you might be able to endure yet another specific question. I love your website and really appreciate the depth of research you have shared and poetic perspective you have re your creations.
You are, indeed, a brave little tart. And those of us who strive for perfection know that cooking and baking can be intimidating to even the most brave. I grate up all the white chocolate on a microplane, onto a piece of parchment. Then I sort of fold the parchment down the middle, and use it to shake out the shavings on to the cake, starting from the top edge and working my way down.
Hope that makes sense!

In order to appreciate wine, it’s essential to understand the characteristics different grapes offer and how those characteristics should be expressed in wines. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel are all red grapes, but as wines their personalities are quite different. Even when grown in different appellations and vinified using different techniques, a varietal wine always displays certain qualities, which are inherent in the grape’s personality.
Muscat should always be spicy, Sauvignon Blanc a touch herbal. Zinfandel is zesty, with pepper and wild berry flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon is marked by plum, currant and black cherry flavors and firm tannins.

Contributed by Brenna Machek — I fell in love with wine through two memorable experiences. The first time was with my parents, and the second time was when I landed my first big job in the wine industry. I would watch how my dad carefully eyed the wine in the glass, stuck his nose deep in the rim of it and closed his eyes to fully inhale the esters that came from the wine he was about to taste. He would then sip a little, swish it around and make the pitter patter sound with his mouth to embrace the tannins all surrounding his taste buds.
A couple months after that big celebration I attained an internship over the summer as a Wine Marketing Manager with Brown-Forman. During the internship, I was required to do two wine independent study days where I went on a private tour and tasting of two top competitors for our company.
