January 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 to the lovely members of the Daring Kitchen. Hope you have a year of complete Baking and Culinary bliss! Let 2016 unleash your unbound creativity and raise the bar of this platform.


I am Shillpa Bhaambri from Cakeline the Journey, a Baker and Cake designer living in Mumbai, India. This is the first challenge that I am hosting, ever since I became a Daring kitchen member in early 2015. Being part of the daring kitchen has, not only connected me with passionate bakers from the world over, but has also given me amazing insight and learning in the baking stream.

Gateaux Pithiviers

Daring Bakers
December 2015

Hello. Long-time Daring Baker Kat here with the December challenge. Gateaux Pithiviers, also called Galette des Rois or King’s Cakes, are traditionally eaten at Lent. Pithiviers are essentially a cake-sized pastry stuffed with an almond filling. A charm, or feve, is sometimes baked into the dessert, and whoever is served that piece is “King for the Day.” The dessert is named for the town of Pithiviers south of Paris. I encourage you to stroll through this beautiful town via Google maps if you need a quick vacation without leaving your desk.
