Made another cake...

A bit late posting, but here is a cake that I made for Thanksgiving 2021. It turned-out pretty good. It is "straight outta the box", lol. Spice cake with melted maple frosting. This was my first attempt at a two layer cake. My neighbors wanted this, so it was a pleasure to bake and then eat it with them. Blessings.

Some of you asked about it, so Sweet Potato Pie is mostly a Southern US treat, originating from the African American communities long ago during the Civil War era period. In the South, sweet potatoes are easier to farm than pumpkins. Not closely related to potatoes and not the same as yams, they actually belong to the Morning Glory family. Sweet Potato Pie is very similiar to Pumpkin Pie, except a bit creamier. Both pies include many spices in common, such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Both pies do taste a lot alike. Here in Alabama, most of us love both of these tasty pies, especially with a dash of whipped cream and a cup of hot coffee. 'A bit of history for us! Blessings to you all, and thanks again for another awesome year of blogging.

Ghastly Ghouls Blog Hop 2021

Today is my day on the Ghastly Ghouls Blog Hop, and here is a very Autumn-themed witch doll. She is approx. 32" tall, and her face is hand-painted. The braided hair is black roving wool. This is a pattern that I had wanted to make for a long while, and finally did just that. Her [new] name is Ezra, and she wears her bottle of witches' potion around her neck. Remember Simone (Bunny Boo Hiss), another Sanker Studio pattern? These two could be friends, couldn't they? Be sure to visit all of the other bloggers this week to see their wonderful projects.
