Fake & Bake

Mistress ErinSo now the “big thing” in the cooking world this week is making your own butter, which reminded me of a truly ridiculous PowerPoint that I made for a history class that I took in college.

My grandmother used to work at a living history museum called “The Norlands” where she portrayed a 19th century suffragist, Esther Weld, and led educational programs for students. My assignment for class was to create some sort of historical food presentation so my grandmother and I dressed up in period garb, pretended to bake a cake in her wood cook stove, and then made homemade butter. Which took forever. Click here to download the staged hilarity in all of its amateur glory.
