  • Around Thanksgiving. I love to bake! The most difficult cake I ever made was a dutch chocolate coffee cake with chocolate ganache frosting... It literally took 8 hours or so... of course allot of that time was waiting around, but it was still overwhelming. I've made that cake three times in my life. Delicious, but difficult!

  • Middle of November about 6 years ago.... it's refered to as "Oh, THAT birthday". It was vile. Totally inedible and ugly as sin. To his credit, my dad managed to choke down a bite and smile. I can't even take all the credit, my sister helped and DH supervised.

  • Back in May. I made the cake for my grandmother's 95th birthday party, and by the time I got to her house, it had fallen apart! I spent the rest of the party being told by Granny how to make a cake.
