Pumpkin Cake

A cake that looks like a lovely, bright orange pumpkin! It is not just for Halloween decoration or Thanksgiving pie filling, bit it is a vegetable rich in minerals and vitamins; also Beta carotene, a powerful anti-oxidant, lots of fiber and potassium. The beautiful pumpkin heralds Autumn when we relish the colorful hue of  the fall foliage.  Fall - the pumpkin season is gateway to new beginnings, the promise of cooler, sweeter weather, colorful leaves, and lots of  fall activities. It means starting to wear cute boots, that favorite sweater and scarves, not to forget sipping that fall drink of choice.

This gourd-like creation  is a carrot-walnut cake with cream cheese filling; the best vegetable source. I did not deface it by painting a Jack-o-lantern.

Enjoy Punkin!

Zodiac cake

Behold a cake for a zodiac enthusiast "Libra".  All the zodiac signs were painted around the cake which was a very intense almond cake with almond cannoli filling. The scales were a carrot cake.

The scales of justice epitomize balance.  An ideal society is a balanced society. That does not mean everyone is equivalently affluent and propitious. The variety and difference between the people of our society creates a balance. God has blessed us with "portions", not the same amounts so we need each other to create a balanced society. Some people have more money, some have more beauty, brains, luck, love......................This does not make one BETTER than the other, but it gives some opportunities to serve/ help the others. We need each other. If we were all rich like Scrooge McDuck, who would sell us food?  Fix that plumbing ?  We need to serve each other to create a balanced society; a better/peaceful world.
