40th anniversary: baking report (post #64115)

in

It was my parents 40th anniversary last Thursday, and the next pictures are my baking/chocolate contributions for the day. THere's 'thank you' cookies, truffles, cake, and pie. I spent the last twee weks making all kinds of chocolate (choc. covered nougat, marshmallows, caramel, chocolate hearts, dark choc. mint truffles, milks choc. champagne truffles, white choc. tiramisu truffles) and the last three days baking cookies, cakes and pie. My feet hurt, but mom and dad were thrilled and that's all that counts :o). Hope you enjoy the pics!

I've been around - lurking for the most part. Thanks for asking!  I've gone back to school and that is keeping me very busy.  There is not as much time as I would like to play in the kitchen.  One day I'll get back to it.  I think I'm the only person on this board who hasn't tried the bread that everyone is raving about. 


Do you go all out with your baking at Christmas too?

Good to hear from you :o).  I hope you like the classes you are taking and heading towards something new and exciting! And don't worry, I havent' tried the bread either, LOL!


I don't like to bake that much for Christmas, because it just seems too much after the big dinners. I have ended up throwing things out too many times. I do bake for my nephew's birthday on the 23rd of december though (which is probably why I don't care to start all over a day later ;o))
