Thanksgiving Menu! Place Your Orders NOW!

Fully knowing how easily swayed most of you are by dessert descriptions and pictures (I have received lots of compliments involving the word "drool"), I have made a Thanksgiving menu of desserts so you can place an order without actually thinking AND make your family forever indebted to your dessert generosity - and consequently, you forever indebted to me.

Following is the menu with prices. More information:
  • Pictures are featured for sizing/presentation purposes, but may not represent the actual dessert (but pretty damn close).
  • All items can be made gluten- or nut-free.
  • As mentioned previously, I put these together to make your life easier - I know how much you hate thinking and deciding. If, however, you do not see what you want here (for example, classic carrot cake), please just let me know - I can make whatever your little heart desires.
  • Please contact me as soon as you can with Thanksgiving orders. Final pick-up/delivery will be the evening of Wednesday, November 23rd, as I have to haul ass on my own Thanksgiving dinner all day Thursday (my first time hosting!).
Hope to hear from you soon!

Thanksgiving 2011 Dessert Menu:

Pumpkin Carrot Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting and Toasted Pecans

The same recipe as my famed carrot cake, only with the addition of pumpkin and a maple cream cheese frosting. Tastes like fall in your mouth. Comes in three sizes. (Pictures are actually of carrot cakes, but sizing and look will be the same.)

-Three-layer cake (approximately 9" diameter and 4" tall, feeds 10-12): $48

-Four-layer cake (approximately 9" diameter and 6" tall, feeds 20-24): $68

-Bundt cake (imagine picture as full size ;): $55

*For cupcakes or mini Bundt cakes, please inquire about pricing.

Pumpkin Roll

A thin, spiced pumpkin cake rolled with a rich cream cheese filling. Slice into pinwheels for individual servings. (While not my picture, will look just like it.)
12" roll (yield depends on how thick you slice it ;): $22

Pumpkin-Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce
Pumpkin-spiced bread gooey pudding studded with pecans and butterscotch morsels, topped with a buttery caramel sauce. Best served warm with ice cream (a cinnamon variety would be awesome but vanilla is fantastic), but many prefer cold. (Picture is of a serving suggestion of my Banana-Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce - you get the idea.)
9"x13" pan: $38

Apple Crisp with Rum Caramel Sauce
Apple crisp that can no longer be justfied as a "healthy" dessert. Double-layer (that's right - crisp on both TOP and BOTTOM) cinnamon-spiced oat crisp sandwiches tart yet slightly sweet cinnamon-spiced apples, all drizzled with a rum caramel sauce.
9"x13" pan: $40

Apple Pie
Cinnamon and nutmeg-scented apples top a buttery, flaky pie crust, with your choice of a full pastry crust, crumb topping, or lattice crust.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
Tastes like your favorite chocolate chip cookie in a pie crust, only with that much-needed holiday addition: booze. Plus, what's a dessert menu without something chocolate.
