So today I got this order out for a customer....Arent' they cute?
I have this very good friend who owns a large daycare. Every year she does something very nice for her staff at Christmas time. For example, One year she bought them all new P.J's and then took them all to the spa to get peddis, etc.
This year, She is hiring a yacht to take them out on with a catered dinner. But, for the invitations, she had me make these little mini cakes and she was placing them in the Christmas boxes (shown behind cakes) then presenting them, with invitations etc. to each staff member. Cute idea huh? They were Lemon with Lemon filling, Buttercream icing, and my "signature" homemade marshmallow fondant.
I also got the tree out and am going to spend the evening decorating it. Now I'm getting in the spirit!
We are only having part of our family for Thanksgiving dinner this year so, we are breaking with tradition....no Turkey! Yes Big Bird! Run free!!! We have decided to treat ourselves (since we have a smaller group this year, and my son-in-law who is allergic to shellfish will be at the other in laws) So.... we are having Lobster tails! Yippee!! Our WinCo store here sells them very reasonably so we are going to splurge!
Appetizers: Mini Quiches & White Wine
Table Favor: Chocolate Covered Petit Four (on each plate) I will be making these with my new kit I just got in Las Vegas at my Cake Camp!!!
Dinner: Salad: Pistachio Watergate Salad
Grilled - 8 oz. Lobster Tails (melted, Lemon/garlic butter)

Are you doing anything "untraditional" for Thanksgiving this year?
