Banana cupcakes. The company I work for has come out with 28 new icings, and I have a whole bunch of 2 ounce sample jars of the flavours, IMHO, go with banana cake. I am also planning on making one big cupcake filled with banana cream and frosted with banana icing. Yes, I have an abundance of overripe bananas.

I also got a bottle of Kirsch syrup so next on my list is a Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte

Protofessional bakeries have an implement to create those lines on the side of the cake. I used a fork once to get the same effect. Worked great. You just have to have a steady hand.

I use the same comb that I use at work, it cost a couple dollars, and I like how it dresses up the cakes.

this is the one that I have.



I use this one if I want straight sides, I don't use the notched sides.

I have seen those combs before. If I am ordering something else, I will order that also. I don't want to be paying shipping for a lone item. But you gave me an idea. I have several hair combs that are still in their packaging and have not been opened yet. I could take one of them and use it.

Would you be able to share the recipe you used for your pumpkin pie?
