There Will Be Caramel

The rest of the caramel I made from my birthday dessert is sitting in my fridge.  As I pondered potential uses for the caramel yesterday, I couldn’t help but daydream along the lines of, “If caramel were an actor, who would it be?”  The brilliant actor Gary Oldman come to mind.  He played Sid Vicious, a creepy vampire in Dracula, and he pulls off the somewhat-bumbling good guy, Lt. Gordon, in the latest Batman films.  Versatile?  Duh.  Of course.  But!  He lacks the smooth, beautiful nature, in real life, that caramel exudes.*  Basically he’d never grace the cover of whatever the ‘Tiger Beat’-equivalent for women is.  Step in, Daniel Day Lewis. Have you seen Last of the Mohicans?  The Crucible?  Totally sexy.  Then you feel like a chump for crushing on him so hard when you’re seeing him crack some skulls in Gangs of New York with that gross, slippery mustache.  Then you feel like a total jerk for hating on him so hard when you see him beating the odds in My Left Foot as a guy with cerebral palsy who has the use of only one limb and learns how to paint with it.   (Yeah, it’s is left foot.)  Amazing, right?

Caramel is Daniel Day Lewis.  It doesn’t have to be the lead guy on the poster, although it usually is.  Caramel is totally cool with letting banana cream pie and chocolate get people excited in a way that makes them not even notice that caramel is about to be a part of the mix.  Then you take a bite of said pie and scream, “CARAMEL?!  YOU’RE TAKING THIS DESSERT TO ANOTHER LEVEL!”  In Daniel Day Lewis style, it’s evident that Caramel would also wear some weird velvet tuxedo to the Oscars and we’d all totally think it was wildly charming and sexy, albeit questionably dressed, when “he” steps on stage to accept his award, because he’d win.  He always wins.  I’ve learned to appreciate the capacity of caramel -  the process involved in making it, then all of the things you can do with it, validate  such admiration, a.k.a. “Oscar-worthiness.” 

The greatest part of making the caramel for this pie was having so much left over.  Now I need to find other ways to put this versatile treat to use!  (Just like producers and directors across the globe scramble to test the skills of DDL (Daniel Day Lewis!): “Hey!  Let’s let him go nuts in There Will Be Blood!  Okay, I’m going to surround him with some babes in Nine!)  Okay, Okay.  I’ve beat this comparison to the ground, I know.

I’ve got big plans for some salted caramel dipped strawberries and a plan to attempt a dipping glaze for one of the treats I’m baking this week.  For now, this caramel will accompany my favorite ice cream in a most delicious sundae.

Ready to be heated up. (Look closely, you can see the vanilla beans in that caramel!)

My favorite ice cream – Natural Vanilla – with flecks of vanilla bean!

Not the prettiest sundaes – the urgency of eating them outweighed making them pretty and photograph-able! 

Now I am off to spend the day pondering what the kitchen-equivalents are for Will Ferrell, Drew Barrymore, and maybe Donald Trump too.

*Maybe Mr. Oldman is totally smooth and beautiful in real life, it’s just not being captured on film properly?
