Sweetapolita Blue Moon Cake
Our friends at TasteBook are featuring a “once in a blue moon” cake recipe which we are excited to share in honor of the scientific rarity of the full blue moon happening Friday, July 31. Happy baking!
Blogger-baker Rosie Alyea’s The Sweetapolita Bakebook is jam-packed with fanciful frosted and sprinkle-bedazzled sweet treats, but we are positively swooning over this aptly named Blue Moon Dream Cake. The cake came to Alyea in a dream, and was so specific in detail, she even envisioned the macaron moon topping. The resulting recipe is a dreamy confection with shades of blue and purple frosting that evoke both the blueberry cake flavor inside as well as Alyea’s mysterious nighttime inspiration. Such a thing hasn’t happened to her since, but with Friday’s rare blue moon on the horizon (when a second full moon occurs in a single calendar month) it just may spark a new fantastical creation for her—and perhaps ignite your creativity, too.
