Well, the thing with me though, PrincessFiona, is that I am a baker by trade so if it gets out that I use premade products at home some of my clients might start to wonder if my cakes come out of boxes .

Whereas I'm a nurse who loves to cook...but...I used to cook in restaurants before I made it to nursing school. Worked in a few bakeries, too. DH is a retired baker.

Well "it's all good in the hood" as Chef Michael Simon says. I actually taught a class a few years ago to a group of young mothers on how to make fancy desserts out of mixes, premade products and other items on hand. It was really fun. I actually always wanted to be a nurse but I think the world is better off with me cooking and baking

Oh, my baking for today will consist of putting a "take and bake" pizza from the deli into the oven.

PS I love your signature!

I am currently baking a pumpkin cheesecake with a crushed pecan crust. While the oven is still hot I'll be putting in a chicken and assorted root veggies to roast.

I'm testing wedding cake recipes with my DIL ... we've done 3 this morning and I just finished cleaning the kitchen up while she starts collecting the rug-rats from school ... after they get home there isn't much chance of being able to think much less talk to each other in the kitchen.

I have trouble keeping myself from gobbling up the whole batch!

Tell me how you like it!
OMG. These look AMAZING! I'm going to try them either tonight or tomorrow afternoon and will post back.
