I actually quite like the color when I first pull the molds out of the oven.
But the bottoms (or tops, depending how you look at it,) were too light!
I've heard people call these white top caneles "Pycnonotus sinensis/Light-vented Bulbul" because these little birds have a white spot on the top of their heads. cute.
These caneles did taste better than I expected. Gotta work on both the flavor and texture. I'm going to whip up another batch tonight.
