Making this at home. Rob's co-workers buy it from me. It all started when I sent some bread to work with him, then they asked if they could buy it! They think that the cinnamon sugar cream cheese spread is some special recipe, even though I've told them that it isn't!

Last year I did 40 loaves the sunday before Thanksgiving, with my biggest year being 55. This year I told him to only take orders from those who approached him and asked for it. I used to do it again at Christmas but it became too much with work and all of the other baking that I want to do.

I can get 16 foil pans in at a time, which is great! The fans help them bake evenly.

That's how my Cheesecake business and then catering started many moons ago. My boss at the time was a baker and had never made cheesecakes. He was buying them from me to sell in the shop and pretty soon I was cooking meals for him and his wife's dinner parties. Then I was cooking for dinner parties for all his friends, etc. All stopped when we moved to Montana.

I'm glad that I'm not afraid to put the brakes on and say no! If not I'd be making cheesecakes, pumpkin breads etc. all the way up until christmas. The money is good, but I have a life too!

Absolutely, I was doing dinner parties every weekend from Thanksgiving to New Year's...no time off from my day job. I didn't learn how to say "no" until I became a nurse...

Wow, Andy! Beautiful. Recipe is mandatory!!!

Today's baking only includes our pumpkin pie for tomorrow. I'm trying a new recipe and, so far, it's promising to be stellar. Can't wait to taste it.
