Any time I bake a cake, it's gone, because I use home-made
buttercream frosting that's to die for (no pun intended)!!
My brownies go quickly as well. So do my cookies -
especially at Christmas, and most of the time, people wait
outside the stove to grab them as they come out of the
oven!! Can't wait to read your book, since there are a lot
of my favorite Authors in it!!
