I really wasn't thinking of cakes with frosting that falls into the butter cream family. I'm thinking cakes with ganache and pastries that often have no frosting at all. Or fabulous cheesecakes.

Ahhh, yes! I make all those too! Now those really ARE "the good stuff"! I think I have a harder time making them than the wedding/regular cakes - I am not so tempted anymore by cake and frosting and have NEVER been one to snack on the fondant when working with it. But cheesecakes, pastries, etc. are a weakness for me too!

Two cakes are better than one. One for each hand. It will keep her out of trouble.

Is that new stool allowing you to spend more time in the kitchen?

I wish I had a stool while I was working in the kitchen, but my kitchen isn't big enough!

We may be doing something about that soon, I hope!

Yup! The old model you used to have to lift the seat to use the steps. This model, the steps slide out and I can ue them as a foot rest when I am sitting. Luv it!!!.
