...what would it be? That's my task, and I'm a cook, not a baker. It's a sweet course in a series of small plates I'm serving for 30 guests each of two nights this weekend at a pop-up supper club and dance performance. All the other dishes will have playful, dance-related names too (pork pirouettes with rosemary tutus, for instance), but honestly the dishes themselves don't need to have more than a passing relationship to their name.
So Isadora Duncan's Doughnut does not need to be, and in fact should not be a doughnut (I don't have a deep fryer, and because of time and space constraints I really need to make something on Saturday that I can serve both Sat and Sun). It can be anything, probably round, and I only have one must per the choreographer: that it be something that can support a long chard of chocolate, representing the scarf that strangled her to death. Anything loosely involving dough and possibly nuts will work.
But like I said, I'm not by nature a baker. I don't even have a sweet tooth, so I only bake when I have to though like most avid cooks I have a goodly collection of cupcake tins and springform pans. I've been hoping all week to get some kind of inspiration, but nothing's come to me.
Any suggestions? Easy to make and easy to keep fresh are big pluses!
