Anyhow, decided Yule Log it is, who doesn't like chocolate cake rolled around chocolate butter icing, layered with chocolate butter icing. Where can it go wrong?
But where are you going to get the plastic holly and hideous plastic robin from

(Me neither but I daren't tell now!)

Well you 2 are just weird and not really English. I could do the good old fashioned fruit cocktail out of a tin and a can of carnation

I like it, hubby likes it and my kid likes it. I only have to make enough for 12 people, so if I can get 9 kids to try a bit I'm sorted

Yum we haven't had that in ages. I think I'll add those things to my shopping list
I still haven't picked what I'm taking in on Wednesday.

Can ask my mum if you like - she's saved them all since 1965 in a little plastic bag in the bottom drawer in the kitchen....

Talking Thanksgiving here not Christmas

I doubt fruit cake will go over well either.

Apple cobbler is always nice. (When I think UK dessert, though, I think bannoffee pie!)

Ah yeah, but as soon as Dad keeps every little 3 x 2 inch offcut of plywood, broken lawnmower engine and a leaky tap in the garage cos it'll "come in handy for something" he's suddenly a hoarder that needs intervention. Sheesh...double standards or what

Throw some rum or something into that icing..... You'll be the talk of the PTA for some time to come.....



I'm joking.....

The first year we were here I made individual choc cornflake cakes for my daughter's to take into school for her birthday. The kids loved them. So when I had to make something for the school I made a variation on the cornflake cakes ie...M & M's, mini marshmallows etc. So easy to make and can be made a day or two before.
