I have been making desserts a long time. Mostly in moderately priced standard bakeries, which include a lot of boring things like bars and cookies and traditional cakes - of and that one time I worked in a Jewish bakery and made more hamantaschen than I like to admit. I snooze while I do those kinds of things, but when ever I get a chance to make something special, I revel in it. With a bakery in the works, it's fun to look back at the (sometimes embarrassing) confections of past. I always see the worst, but it doesn't mean I don't love them all. And I won't lie, my favorite cake of all time was the grave digger cake. That one was a blast, and made our nephews day!
