thanksgiving desserts

This is what I'll be making for Thanksgiving. Pecan Pie Cake. Thank you, Cake Mix Doctor, for having such yummy and easy recipes.

I'm also making pumpkin pie and this chocolate cake with peppermint frosting. We don't usually have chocolate on the Thanksgiving table, but a friend gave me some leftover peppermint frosting that needs chocolate cake. The frosting is currently in the freezer. I read that you can freeze frosting, but this is the first time I'm trying it. If it works, it might just revolutionize my baking world.

Have you decided what desserts will accompany your Thanksgiving dinner?

Here are some tried-and-true suggestions from the archives, if you're scrambling to come up with something great:

I'm watching the snow fall and making my last grocery list before Turkey Day. I'm also paying extra attention to things I'm thankful for right now. I hope to be back in a day or two to share some of those things with you.

Enjoy your week.

Peppermint frosting sounds A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I'm making Pumpking pie.. Boo. I don't even like it, but it's Andrew's favorite and I couldn't say no. :)

Hey Hey! Those all sound delicious........but, I have to point out that there doesn't seem to be one pie on the list:0 To remedy that, I recommend, oh say, chocolate bourbon pecan pie, or perhaps, cranberry maple walnut pie.
Whaddya say?

Brittney--you're such a good wifey. :) I could probably arrange to make another chocolate peppermint cake for Christmas.

Christine--Those sounds lovely! You're right, I don't frequently think of pie. Except for pumpkin. Pumpkin pie is a requirement for Thanksgiving. Plain and simple, pumpkin pie with sweetened whipped cream on top. Yep.

But I'm all over that chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Send one over. :)

How did the frosting work out? Baking world revolution or total flop?

It worked very well! I just let it come up to room temperature, re-whipped it, and it was just like freshly made. I'm pretty excited.
