As well as having an unnatural obsession with yarn shops, I love cook shops. Lucy and I spent a happy hour browsing in the Cook’s Place on Danforth Avenue in Toronto (aka “The Danforth”/”Greek Town”) while Chloe ran riot with the wooden spoons.
As well as buying some more cookie cutters and icing tips, I bought a silicone mini-brownie pan (it just looked too cute, and it was in the sale, OK). Lucy and I tested it out with a batch of Namesake Brownies, and damn were they good.
We’ve just made another batch to take to a BBQ on Saturday, although I do feel a bit like bringing coals to Newcastle – a Brit bringing brownies to a North American party.
You could also make really cool jellies in these, with individual bits of fruit in them (vodka optional). Or make petit fours. Or mini ice-lollies. A good purchase, I reckon.
