White-Hot Hot Chocolate
I do not like hot chocolate, so I thought I would like it better if I made it myself and it was a different flavor. I ended up using what I had on hand. I used skim milk, added almost an ounce more of white chocolate, and I didn't have any cayenne pepper. But instead I added some peppermint extract, which gave it a really good flavor. I was very pleased with it. And as someone who doesn't like hot chocolate, I'd make it again. And I think I'd switch out the white chocolate with all sorts of various chocolates. I think it was a pretty good starting point.

Marshmallow Fondant
This was SUPER easy to make and it tasted GREAT! I followed others advice and used Crisco instead of butter. It was VERY sticky work, and took longer than I thought to knead the dough, but it got there. I left it in the fridge overnight, and started working with it the next morning. It was pretty stiff, but ripped it apart and got it pliable in smaller sections, as I'm just not used to kneading. But once it was workable, it became very easy to use. My biggest problem was I ran out of counter space! This being my first time using fondant (I don't consider my disaster about 5 years ago with the store-bought stuff!), I wasn't sure about the amount to use on my cake, etc. But my Hello Kitty cake (made from 2 8in round cake pans stacked) turned out great! The color of the Marshmallow Fondant here didn't need to be changed at all, and again, the taste was fabulous! And I had a TON left over! I am one of those people who HATE the taste of Fondant, and if you are one of them as well, don't let this dissuade you. This is infinitely better. For years my personal cake decorating has been limited to my buttercream creations, but I've always wanted to try a hand at Fondant decorating. But why try something if you don't want to taste it? Now I have no worries!

Salmon Ball
The BIGGEST hit at a Thanksgiving pot-luck at work, then Thanksgiving dinner, then Post-Thanksgiving dinner, then another party later on (you get the idea!). I noticed a lot of people mentioned smoked salmon. For someone who doesn't have the money for a handled smoker, and canned smoked salmon isn't available in the regular grocery stores and is way too expensive in the fancier, Bumblebee's Atlantic Salmon is a pretty flavorful alternative. The leftover (if there is any) hold up very well in the fridge overnight for a second helping the next day.
