Gentle Friends, Sunday, Christmas Eve I finished up the Lane Cake... HERE's the recipe I used... and here's a snap of the finished cake...
... I had never made one before, and I was leary of the minimal amount of frosting that it called for so I made a full batch....and I ended up with lots and lots of extra fluffy white and what does on do .... you try to use it up....so I made some silly decorations with a jury-rigged pastry bag..... I couldn't find my real one.... and here's...
... the remnants in the kitchen sink. Making this frosting brought back some really great memories as it was my mom's go-to recipe.... 7-Minute Frosting. I had never tried to make it before but she made it all the time and always at Christmas for the Birthday cake.
I also made the mushroom filling...
... for the main event for dinner the next day.... here's the menu...
