I am sad to report that my danish never happened... and here is why:
I'm in the process of moving cross-country and had to finish my job and a major part of my dissertation before we left. However, I was really excited when I saw what this month's challenge, especially since I've never made a laminated though. So I decided to tackle it as a birthday present to myself.
I decided to make it apricot-lime, inspired by a lovely jam from the Hi-rise bakery. I thought the orange flavor would clash with the apricot-lime, so I substituted lime juice for orange juice... but then I realized that those two are far from substitutable because my lime juice (straight) was VERY acidic. I tried to fix it by adding more sugar to the dough, but alas it didn't work. My dough tasted overpoweringly lime-y and for some reason, made my fingers sting when I played with it (maybe it was the paper-cuts I had from filing last minute paperwork). To make matters worse, my Kitchen-aid mixer went crazy again, as with my cursed party cake. When I turned it on to low (or to anything), it started going faster and faster, beyond the fastest usual speed, and then would turn off. I took it as a sign that I should stop and go work or pack!
Another reason I'm sad my Danish never happened is that, between the move and some traveling we'll be doing, I will miss the July and August challenges too! I'll try my best to make it for August but I think it's unlikely... In any case, I hope everyone had fun in this challenge and the next ones and I will see you in September!
