Chef Julia Child observes pastry chef Johanna Killeen as she makes "baby cakes," miniature cakes made from of the same basic batter, but varied with different flavoring ingredients. First, she shows Julia how to make the batter, which is a traditional American pound cake recipe, made richer with the addition of creme fraiche . She varies the first recipe by using hazelnut flour as an ingredient, and tops it with a dollop of Italian cream cheese flavored with grapa wine. Then she makes a couple of miniature upside-down cakes, using a rhubarb and caramel topping on one and rose geranium leaves on another.
