the cake we made






For Thanksgiving, my mother asked me if we could bring the dessert. The Sasquatch and I had thought about making pie but I saw a recipe in Martha Stewart's magazine for a gingerbread cake. It looked yummy, so we made that:


We decorated it with gingerbread cookies (that is the Sasquatch's specialty. He makes amazing gingerbread cookies).


And we added a surprise....



Surprise!

Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
