G-Ma, I can only pray that one of the locals is also a hubber and finds your recipe, bakes it and tosses a bit out the trash. Yes I am a picker but, I only hit the cans in the dead of winter when there is a lot of snow. The Doctor says I am getting too round and should lay off the sweets but , he is only human so what does he really know? Thank you for visions of sugar plums, I can still DREAM, me poorQpine.

I have not tried the eggnog cake as of yet, but I definitely will be trying it in the near future. By the way, I tried the mug chocolate cake the over day and it tasted very good. I was impressed.
