Welcome Back, Pumpkin Spice

Did you miss the pumpkin spice? If so, fear not; it's ba-ack!

From Dunkin Donuts to Krispy Kreme to Tim Horton's, everyone is offering something delicious this fall! You'll find Maple Pecan coffee at Dunkin this year, which sounds scrumptious. They will also have pumpkin cream cheese spread for the fall, which will be excellent on bagels. Krispy Kreme will be offering both hot and iced pumpkin spice coffees as well as a frozen option.

Cake for One

Most people like cake, and many love it, but sometimes an entire cake is just too much. Even in my family of three, if I bake a standard-size cake in a pan, much of it often goes uneaten simply because we all only wanted a piece or two. That's why we usually reserve cake for days with company or parties.

Dessert Sculptures

If you're making something sweet to eat this week, why stop at eating it? How about making it into a piece of art?

This week, the annual GISHWHES (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) is taking place, and as it does every year, it is challenging people to think outside the box and be extremely creative. My family made a sculpture out of... Well, I won't reveal it because they hunt is still on, but I'll say we got creative with some fruit this week!
