Happy Thanksgiving

From The Roberts Family to You and Yours,  Happy Thanksgiving For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, For love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~ Between Naps on the Porch Ivy and Elephant French Country Cottage Common Ground

Maple Walnut Cake w/ Candied Walnuts

Is everyone busy with Thanksgiving preparations?   A few days ago I showed you all the cover of Taste of Home magazine (one of my platters was on the cover) and a pic of a cake that I was excited to make this year as I like to try one new dessert every Thanksgiving.  I LOVE the flavor of maple and as soon as I saw this in the magazine I knew I had to make it…so here it is, a comfy cake from me still in my comfy flannel pjs…yes it has been one of those days =)  So far, this is all I've made for Thanksgiving.  Yikes.    Need to get my bum busy. Maple Walnut Layer Cake w/ Candied Walnuts  I haven't tried it yet, well not as a put together cake anyway.  I did try the cake batter, I did eat some of the candied walnuts and I did have a spoonful of Maple frosting.  I can imagine them together and think it will be a hit.  Once we cut into it, I'll take a pic and update…but so far the frosting and nuts are winners around here. I baked the cakes a few days ago and
