The Second Annual Festival of Desserts

Egg Nog Pound Cake

It is that special time of year. Continuing the tradition started last year, I hosted the second annual Festival of Desserts on Friday. As always, I ran out of time and didn’t make all the desserts I wanted to prepare. Here are the desserts that were enjoyed for this year’s festival.

  • Banana Chocolate Walnut Brownies
  • Chocolate Brownies
  • Egg Nog Rum Cake
  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
  • Cheesecake
  • Lunchroom Butter Cookies
  • McNannygocious Pound Cake
  • Egg Nog Pound Cake
  • Red Velvet Cake
  • Banana Nut Bread
  • 7 Up Cake

Special Guest Desserts

  • Lemon Squares
  • Sweet Potato Pie

Special thanks to Joey for the lemon squares, David for the sweet potato pies, and JS & AF for the chicken. Another big hit of the party was the hot apple cider with the mulling spices from Williams-Sonoma. A good time was had by all. I must apologize for not taking more dessert photos.

    If you couldn’t get shots of the desserts, you should have taken pictures of everybody falling out after they’d eaten.
    Sounds like a fun party.

    By the way, your cake looks even more gorgeous than the first one! I’m making cheesecake tomorrow.
