Or, how to celebrate a 16th birthday.
Start with: Cinnamon Sugar Baked Doughnuts
These doughnuts are perfect sweet and buttery on the outside and doughy inside. Best start to any birthday. And if your dough flops it makes delicious cinnamon rolls :)
Next... what do you make for dessert that's sophisticated but still fun?
Lady Fingers & Strawberry Ice Cream
I can't even remember now where I got the recipe. I do remember a bit of a fiasco with measurements though :) We had to double the recipe part way through and wound up with a lot of lady fingers in the freezer.
Piping consistently was our biggest challenge but they tasted good whether they were shaped right or not.
We made our strawberry ice cream of course!
