lol... my gingerbread boy is in a box somewhere... I"m not even brave enough to make plain old round ones. Anything dough like that I have to roll out, tends to turn out ugly!!!!

That's a mighty fine looking round of bread. George would be proud of you. I'll grab Pie Susan and we'll be right over with the pastrami....

The Pumpkin Streusel Bars were a great hit at work today. We made $36.00 to add to our fundraising money to give to charity.

Thanks for the compliment JV. No need to bring pastrami with you; The Mrs went to NYC today to buy 20 pounds from Katz's. By the time she gets back, the Varathane you suggested should be dry

Excellent! These are genuinely tough times for a lot of folks, and great to see your group doing their part to help.

What an innovative idea. I have to ask...just how expensive is edible gold dust? I can't imagine putting a precious metal on baked goods, although my BIL used to drink something called Goldschlager (sp?) that had gold leaf floating in every bottle.
