Thanksgiving Pumpkin Cake

Pumpkin Cake, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Pumpkin Bundt Cake, Thanksgiving CenterpieceHappy Thanksgiving week, everyone!  I start this week with a grateful heart for the wonderful life I share with my husband and our little boy.  Our life together is everything I've ever wanted and more, and I'm thankful every day that he chose me, that he shows me how much he loves me through all the things he does for me and our son.

We won't be having a big family dinner this year - although we'll still make all the traditional favorites, because Thanksgiving dinner leftovers are one of the good things in life.  My husband dry-brines the turkey, which gives it the most beautiful golden brown crispy skin, and he also makes amazing creamy scalloped potatoes.  And on Wednesday, I'll start the prep-work on all the other dishes...

Funfetti Cake

Funfetti Cake, Oh Boy, Baby Announcement, Baby Boy, Gender RevealWhen I want to say something, I like to say it with cake.  Whether that's to say I love you, or I'm happy for you, or let's celebrate you today, cake has always been, and will always be the way I love to commemorate a day or event or holiday.  It's fun to eat, of course - I mean, that's a given - but also so beautiful to look at, and so much fun to decorate.

And today's cake has a special announcement to make, which is definitely worthy of celebrating...
