November cakes

Do you remember the November cakes from Maggie Stiefvater’s SCORPIO RACES?

Well, if you’re food-focused like me and really wanted to try a November cake, here is Maggie’s recipe, and here are a zillion pictures of the November cakes her readers made.

Think of them as cinnamon rolls, only made with a touch of orange rather than cinnamon. Me, I like the look of that recipe, but I think I will add 1/4 tsp orange extract to the glaze as well as the filling. and the icing. And maybe the dough, too. I mean, if you’re going to have a hint of orange, why not a very definite hint?

    I’ve made them! After I finished Scorpio Races I HAD to try them. They’re a lot of work, but I enjoy baking and thought it was totally worth it. In fact, now that you’ve reminded me, I ought to make them again. =)

    That’s so cool! I’m astonished I didn’t try them after I read Scorpio Races, but I definitely need to make them soon.
