Cake Project #19: Gingerbread. Could be sweeter, it's rather bland, but it's gingerbread. Thank goodness it's only a 9 inch pan's worth. Definitely skipping the ATF gingerbread in the book, as it is made with beer and no sugar, yech! MORE

Cake Project #18: Sweet Potato Pound Cake. It has sweet potatoes in it and it weighs about 5 pounds. But, it only remotely resembles cake. More like pie in cake's clothing. To quote one of my all time favorite Thanksgiving moves "The Ghost and Mr Chicken"; "The terribleness an MORE

Cake Project #15: Holiday Honey Cake. Project book author suggested leaving the cake set for 24 hours before eating to "let the spices permeate the crumb". Yeah Melissa, that'll happen. 4 hours is close enough. And that was as good as it gets. Crumb permeation only made this cake much MORE
