Thank you... that's nice of you to say. I think I'm just overthinking it a little

Well, the cake, me and my husband are about to make a 6-hour car trip now - hopefully we all arrive in one piece!

I made 3 dozen madeleines yesterday and won't get to eat even one! LOL. My daughter needed them for her French class tomorrow and we are too busy for me to bake them today. I have the butter out thawing so I can whip up a batch of those lemon bars I've been craving now! I'll get to those this afternoon.

so 'that's' what that pan is for. I've seen them often in specialty stores, didn't take the time to figure it out nor did I ask. now I know

I asked my husband to put the chocolate chip muffins I made yesterday [that I forgot to mention here in this thread] in the freezer for me to use for bread pudding when I get home. I hope they work for that purpose, we'll just have to wait and see.
They were quite good as muffins, but I won't eat them and since the kids are gone now, they won't eat them either, so what better use for them other than to toss them, but put to another use.

I baked some muffins also. I prefer to use a savoury topper

I just baked a batch of coconut and chocolate muffins.
There is now bread baking in the oven. The house smells great.

No baking today because of the no water issue. 5pm can't come soon enough!! I'm going to bake a birthday cake for my Mom later. Hopefully tonight, but if not, tomorrow for sure.
