Gift Guide: For Cake Bakers

You may want to be careful on the cupcake caddy. I have two, one that looks like the one you posted, and one that looks like a plastic cupcake tray (much deeper holes for the cupcakes). The shallow spots for cupcakes often end up in tipped cupcakes. If anyone is looking, I'd recommend a carrier with the deeper cups.

What's the Best Bread for Stuffing?

I got my stuffing methodology from my father. For a few months before Thanksgiving (ok really year round because stuffing is great), I cube up any leftover heels of good bread, homemade, storebought, white, wheat, sourdough, sometimes even cheese bread. I toast them and throw them in ziplocs in the freezer. Then pull them all out and mix, and voila, a texturally interesting, flavorful stuffing! With the added bonus that I didn't actually have to buy any bread.

My best success is having more desserts than people (group of 7, with pumpkin cheesecake, apple spice cupcakes with 2 frostings, walnt apple pie, cranberry caramel almond tartlets, sugarfree pumpkin custard, and sugarfree apple crisp). Odds are it will probably be my biggest fail as well.
