“BEHIND THE APRON STRINGS”
This Thanksgiving I wanted to try something a little different other than a standard Pumpkin Pie. I was browsing through Pinterest and came across a “Ginger Snap Pumpkin Cream Pie” it sounded tasty and it was a big hit with my husband who kept raving over it however I wasn’t a big fan of the taste as the butterscotch dominated over the Pumpkin Purée, I like my Pumpkin. The middle layer had Cream cheese and cream whip blended together, the top had pumpkin purée and butterscotch mixed. If I make it again, I would put more Pumpkin purée in,

I Made a Chocolate cake with a Bavarian Chocolate mousse topper for a friends Birthday yesterday. The inside filling contained white frosting with a little raspberry sauce, the cake was a dark chocolate. It was my First time baking with a 6’ Cake & I Love the size! Perfect for two or four. #Happybirthday #birthdaycake #chocolate #Bavarian
This was the final outcome of “Make A Wish” photo sent in by the Birthday Girl.

“BEHIND THE APRON STRINGS” Another Homade Birthday Cake this Summer and I’ve always wanted to try making Chocolate Curls, it was our sons Birthday & he wanted his favorite “German Chocolate” So This was my chance to try some of them :)
I made Dark chocolate cake and applied Dark Chocolate Frosting in the middle, Milk Chocolate on the outside and topped it off with Coconut Pecan! It was a sinful pleasure with a next day food hangover but so worth the indulgence. :)’
we cut a round from a small tree that had fallen from a windstorm last winter for the cake stand and my son being a outdoorsmen type of guy I thought it would be a nice accessory to the cake.
Melt your Choice of Chocolate with a little bit of Shortening and microwave until melted. Pour the Chocolate over the back of a cookie Sheet and spread thinly, put into the freezer for several minutes. Take a Metal Spatula and begin to slowly scrape & start at the edge of the cookie sheet until it starts forming a curl. If the Chocolate seems to soft put it back into the freezer. I had to keep doing that after each curl because it quickly kept softening up.
frozen and ready
Satisfied with the outcome
Happy Birthday to our Son :)
