I have a confession to make: There will be no Senzu Bean Jelly Beans this week. At the time of this post there have been five failed batches of beans. I’d like to believe that each batch is a step closer to the desired result. It seems that there aren’t many decent how-to videos for making jelly beans around. I think in the end it should work out pretty well, but it is just not happening this week.
As a substitute, let’s sidetrack to one of my favorite games: Skyrim. One of the most iconic items from the game is the sweet roll. I actually had all of the ingredients on hand and didn’t need to make a special trip to the store, which is a nice change of pace. Today’s recipe is borrowed from Instructables with a small tweak at the end. Additionally, in place of the usual glaze Neo was craving some cream cheese icing. I’m inclined to agree with him here. The glaze/icing in the original sweet roll just seems more… substantial. No offense, Instructables. I’m sure your glaze is absolutely fantastic and I’ll probably try it someday. I use the cream cheese icing recipe from Food Network; it’s always yielded great results and has great taste. Links to these recipes can be found at the end of the post.
