That's the question of the day around here when I am baking. Is this for us or someone
else? Honestly, I do try to double recipes and make extra for these guys because I know
it must be hard to smell those fresh baked smells and see those fresh baked items cooling
on the counter, only to watch them be placed into carriers and whisked away to some other
lucky recipient. Here are a few things that I took pictures of lately:
One of a 2 cake set for a 60th birthday party. The other one said Happy Birthday
with her age but I liked this one better. They were carrot cake with cream cheese
frosting and weighed about 25 pounds each. Just ask my sister--she was the lucky
person recruited to sit in back of the delivery car and hold them under the penalty
of death if they were damaged in any way, shape or form.
My niece Erin made this awesome dessert for my older daughter's birthday. Isn't it
great? It is "sushi" made from marshmallows, fruit roll ups, frosting and jelly beans
complete with chop sticks. Some people have the neatest ideas!
I picked up a Paula Deen dessert magazine when we were in Juneau and this cake
was on the cover. Hers was square, but I decided to try it in round layers (I thought
it would look better) This one stayed home and we ate THE WHOLE THING. The
chocolate mousse in the 5 layers is absolutely delicious--very light yet full of chocolate
flavor at the same time.
I made this Coffee Toffee Torte for tonight's good bye dinner for our pastor and his wife.
They have been promoted to district managers of all pastors in Alaska, so we wish them
well. The butterflies are made of chocolate so they can eat them!
That's all for now, but I just took a phone order for a boy's birthday cake with a rocket
ship, and there's 4th of July, a wedding in July, then my nephew's birthday in August...
