70 deg in the winter and after doing yard work all day i wanted some sugar and not just any sugar so i ended up making this.....

split a cake in half and fit bottom into spring form pan


pulled out the ice cream maker, if yer in the market this is a good one with out shelling out $500-$600.


cooled the custard and started it up.....


when nobody is looking sneak a taste with a cinnamon twist.....


damn...got busted but very easily bribed with a pay off........

For cooking, lower and slower. For spices, mo' hotter, mo' better. Habaneros rule!

crash, it is pretty simple.......you first lay out a base sauce, in this case it is vanilla. then starting in the center, you lay out a thin line spiralling out to the edge with another color.



then with a toothpick you start from the center and pull to the edge. you will do this 8 times foming equal segments. then you will disect each segment by pulling the toothpick from the edge to the center.
it really is that simple...............
