Therefore, you will be subjected to the year's ugliest cake:

The Monster Mulberry 4 Layer Cake!
Looks pretty good, GF. I am sure it tasted incredible and that is what counts.

Okay, I have said it many times and put it off just as much, but today is a baking day. I need to use up some bananas so I will finally make the monkey bite muffins and need to make at least one batch of cookies but hopefully two.

Grilling Fool, it may not be the world's prettiest cake, but it looks delicious. Makes my mouth water!

Okay, I finally got my Monkey Bite Muffins made. I have posted the recipe and another picture here. I also have the dough and cinnamon sugar ready to make some snickerdoodles as soon as I finish cleaning up from supper.

No baking for me today unless you count how "baked" I felt in the car as I was doing my shopping.

However, tomorrow will be another story. I have a whole head of roasted garlic panting to go into the starter for N.Y. Times bread tomorrow. Can't wait. Chopped rosemary is going to join the garlic. Yumm.

Bought some pineapple cake mix today to "create" some pina colada cookies later this week. Now...where's my rum?

Yum Laurie, those look so good!

Today is baking mania at our house!

Since I am packing the Kitchenaid mixer this weekend I'm baking for the last time for a while. I decided to make 4 kinds of cookies.

Double Dark Chocolate (these are my specialty and it's where I got my name "cookie master" !!

Oatmeal Raisin (my favorite!)

Peanut Butter (most Brits have never had pb cookies!)

And of course the classic, Chocolate Chip!!!

I'm baking for our landlords, my neighbors, the postman, my one friend here and our vet. It's my goodbye goodies for them. They have all made my stay here much more tolerable.
