Next Up: Rosace à l’Orange

Reader Ascanius made this excellent suggestion recently and I was quick to agree. This “stained glass” orange cake is a Gaston Lenôtre classic and a perfect holiday season treat. Let’s do this thing!

On a side note, I should say that I love the thought that there are ancient lit-loving parents out there bold enough to name their child “Ascanius” (possibly a father named Aeneas?). That’s probably too much too hope for. Ascanius’ email handle is “vergilius” which indicates that he’s probably just a classics lover. Either way the dude is OK by me!

    I’ve never heard of this but it sounds like it could be pretty visual. So looking forward to learning about it.
