Yes, We Can Bake
Of course, by "we" I don't mean me. And certainly nothing as elaborate as the five layer Obama cake my daughter baked for election night. In fact, ever since the birthday cake debacle in which I had to trowel frosting between chunks of cake to form a barely recognizable cake-shaped structure, my policy is that if it has to come out of the pan in one piece, it's too complicated.
My daughter will be here for Thanksgiving, so I'm already looking forward to some serious baking. At least this year, dessert may involve more than my usual boxed gingerbread mix.
