After two years of making really complicated cakes for the office dessert contest (a golden cage and then a 7 layer cake), this year I decided to do something easy. I made the eggnog variation of the New York Times' Brandy Alexander Pie. And no, I still didn't win, but I didn't feel like I should have.
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and a Joyous Solstice. I probably won't be posting again until after the New Year. Stay warm, have fun, don't spend too much, take lots of photos, and I'll be back next year.
