Any experienced/jaded member of the working population knows that crossing the finish line usually means that there are still a few hidden hurdles left to go. So by the time I got to the actual baking of my first biscotti, I wanted to make it as easy on myself as possible and use a recipe I had found using a cake mix. And I don't know about you, but when I think of celebrating, I think of sprinkles. So I grabbed a box of Funfetti cake mix instead of my usual favorite red velvet as the original recipe used.
I feel like I've reached a tipping point and learning a lot of lessons about working life at this two-year mark. One important one was given to me by a co-worker as we discussed having a launch party with cake for this milestone: when something good happens in work, you should celebrate, because the moment will pass quickly and if you miss it, you will regret it later. So if you have a victory in your little cubicle, hurry up and bake these biscotti before something else pops into your inbox!
Recipe from Something Swanky
- Funfetti Cake mix, with added sprinkles, instead of Red Velvet
- For next time, I'll probably slice thinner biscotti, I was nervous about crumbling
- I cut my biscotti in half again after slicing, just to create more servings
