Holiday Baking

File Under: Fa-La-La

Beth posted a blog about holiday baking. I try to make something each year, either for a dinner party, or for work, or just to have around the house during the holidays.

This is a cake I made back in 2005.

The pan is actually a mold that is in 2 parts, front and back. It was something I ordered from the "Martha by Mail" catalog back when she sold products online and by catalog. I baked it for Dan's Christmas dinner. It was an involved process but so worth it. I had fun making it and it was delicious.
This weekend, we're gathering at Dan and Luis' place to have dinner and do a gift exchange. I'm making another snowman cake. I'm looking forward to it. I am faced with the challenge of getting all of the candy elements to decorate it. Macy's on State Street (formerly the flagship Marshall Field & Company) has a large candy counter in their basement, I may take a trip down there to see what they have.
I'll take pictures of the cake when it's done.
