This is so gorgeous I had to reblog. Apparently it’s made as a jelly roll, from regular flour and purple sweet potato flour and it’s filled with vanilla buttercream and coconut. ohmyohmyohmy. Wish I had some for my coffee right now. If anyone has a recipe, please send it my way!
Just A Slice Of The Colour Purple
In the pastry world, blue is just so faux pas, but purple and purple cake (purple sweet potato cake) to me is just wildly pretty and distinctively scrumptious enough, it can very well be the “Rock Star” of cakes.
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said …they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on.
I’m going to teach this to the kids I have one day… and I hope everyone of this generation does the same.
As the little and big ones go back school… This is a life lesson we all can use and reflect on.
