|sugar sprinkled on top....|
Arta tried one summer, but it was too hard to get the sugar to caramelize on tip just using the oven.
And then, this Christmas, while on the hunt for a wooden paddle to beat fondant, I found creme brûlée kit, so under the tree it went for Duncan. :-)
|applying the heat!|
He has now worked the whole thing through twice (yes, that means working with a vanilla bean, making the custard, baking it, and then caramelizing the sugar on top!)
It was the surprise hit of the holiday season. I mean, seriously, what kid doesn't want 4 ramekins, and their own mini blowtorch!?
