Barbie Doll Cake
great recipe. I used my pampered chef large batter bowl and an 8 inch round cake pan with 2 boxes of cake mix and it was perfect. I did drop the temp a little and add time but I don't recall exactly the numbers so that it would cook through. I did have to bend Ariel's legs to get them in the cake at a good level but she fit just fine and my neice Emma was tickled pink when she saw it. I made a matching little ariel for my neice Sara as it was a shared birthday party and she just demolished it all. Both were thrilled that they had a doll to play with later. A fun recipe.

Portuguese Sweet Bread III
I changed it a little. I added 4 more egg yolks to make it more yellow and an extra half cup of sugar. it comes out pretty dense and much more authentic this way. Not exactly heart healthy but surely YUMMY!

Eggnog Cookies III
this recipe was yummy but it needed just a little flare so I took 3/4 cup of confectioner's sugar with 1tsp of nutmeg and mixed about 3-4 tablespoons of eggnog into it to just make it slightly runny. After putting it in a pastry bag with a tiny hole at the end I drizzled it over the cookies then sprinkled red and green sugar over it to give it a festive look. It took a bit for the cookies to dry but it seemed to go faster when I put them in the oven that was barely warm after having it shut off from baking for a while. YUMMY this way!
