If I have time to bake a cake, it will be an Amalgamation Cake. Pies are for

Cake?
Pumpkin pie. Pecan pie. And maybe a lemon meringue pie. And a cherry
pie (home-grown cherries are in the freezer) if I have time.

Best regards,
Bob

Cakes? On Tday? I don't think so. Tday is
pie day. Pumpkin pie day, for that matter.
You can have others as well, but pumpkin is a
must. This year we're having pumpkin, pecan,
and lemon meringue.

No cake this year, just pumpkin pie- it's what everyone wants this year.

I will, however, be making English Christmas Cakes around then so they can
mellow before I give them away. I have these small loaf pans in my cupboards I
thought I'd use this year. I plan to try to decorate the small loafs as Yule
logs- sorta of a take off on Buche De Noel-- won't they be surprised when
they cut into these marzipan-wrapped/royal-iced merengue-mushroom-decorated
nummies to find a fruitcake waiting for them?

*chuckles*

I was thinking of adding a bean to each cake and writing a little blurb about
12th night traditions on the recipe card. Maybe my fruitcakes'll actually get
eaten!

*smiles*

I've been thinking about a German chocolate cake, but I've never
made one before and a look at the icing recipe made me nervous
that it wouldn't thicken up. I haven't a lot of experience with
candy and icing recipes that require boiling, but absolutely
none of them have ever managed to firm up enough to be right.

Wayne (am I right?) gave me some good suggestions on how to
make sure a brownie icing firmed up, but I haven't tried that
yet.

I live in fear of icing and candy recipes that call for boiling.
