Happy Thanksgiving…

Me and a turkey
Come on, just for a second you thought I was about to break out with tips on preparing your bird. I have only had the pleasure of cooking a turkey once and this one was not it. However, I did well on my first attempt.

Egg Nog Rum Cake
Now this baby here is my own handiwork. It is an egg nog rum cake made in a cathedral bundt pan. Quite impressive if I say so myself. All it needs is a little powdered sugar or a lethal rum glaze to put it over the top. I am taking this cake to Chicago later today for dinner. My mommy will be quite proud.

Sending you much love and many blessings for a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    In keeping with the nature of this website, don’t you think you should have made a cake in the shape of a piano, or a tenor sax, maybe Regina Carter’s violin?
