Chocolate or Vanilla


10 Mar Chocolate or Vanilla

Chocolate and vanilla by The Messy Baker®

I’m often asked which I like best, chocolate or vanilla. To me it’s not an either or option. I love them both and to prove it,  I’m on air at two stations today talking chocolate at one and vanilla at the other.

Thanks to pre-taping you can catch me at Inside Guelph throughout the day. I’ll be talking about naked cakes. I’m sharing tips on lining a cake pan, cutting a layer cake without a knife and how you can put together your own very messy, very trendy naked cake. Want the recipe? Click here.

Over at CTV Kitchener’s New at Noon, I’m going vanilla. And not boring, bland vanilla. To showcase the possibilities, I’ve made vanilla cookies, dipped them in a vanilla glazed and sprinkled the results with vanilla salt. I’ll be talking about how you can make your own vanilla store — vanilla sugar, salt and extract. Want the recipe? Click here.

    your link takes us to naked cake, which is well and good, but I am still looking longingly for the cookie recipe…

      Yikes! Sorry about that. You’re right. I got the links reversed. Good catch. Thanks for letting me know. I’ve corrected them.

      Again, sorry about the confusion.

    That’s such a tough question! Can we answer chocolate *and* vanilla? ha :)
    Where do you get your vanilla beans from? Just a regular grocery store? Thanks!

      Well, I can’t argue with that! I actually love the combination of chocolate paired with vanilla whether it’s in a layer cake, filled cookie or trifle.

      Great. Now I’m hungry :-)
