This suspense is terrible. I hope it will last. —O. Wilde


Episode description

Welcome to the first episode of The Cake Historian Podcast wherein I ramble extensively, introduce the "Cake of the Episode," talk a bit more about what you can expect, and end with an interview between myself and my 5-year-old daughter. It's not quite what I planned to give you, but it is ME, unedited and off-script. Nice to meet you.

A few pictures and the recipe for this "Cake of the Episode" can be found here:

Original music composed by Alejandro Pinto-Hernández (THANK YOU. We did it!)
