Cake, Lud.

A few people asked me for the recipe to the spice cake with butternut squash that I mentioned, so I hunted it up online:

I just finished icing it and putting the candied ginger on it, and I don't know that I'm going to be able to wait until Rick gets home from his birthday mountain bike ride to dig in.
Mmm....

Take care.

The ginger would have disappeared off the top if it was here. Looks really delicious

Ooooh...you are a model of self-restraint if you managed to wait. That discipline alone should give you a free pass on the next impulse yarn purchase. =)

Happy birthday to Rick, and thanks for the recipe!

Oh yum. Here's another great recipe, if you're interested, better even than my mom's blueberry cake:

Extremely good stuff and even better the next day.
