thanksgiving day: dessert

thanksgiving always means lots of cooking and timing when it comes to the yummy food. my favorite part (aside from yams with marshmallows and brown sugar) is dessert. however, and don't hate me for saying this, i do not like pumpkin pie. i know, i know, it's a classic turkey day staple but, i've never really loved it. so for my thanksgiving (and friendsgiving) contributions, i decided i would spice up the dessert display with chocolate cake with salted caramel icing, caramel apple cheesecake and molasses cookies dipped in vanilla almond bark.
needless to say, i am in for a baking frenzy tonight. and as much as i would like to just hang tonight, i have learned from experience to try to get everything done in advance (mostly because something always goes wrong and i need the extra time to fix fill-in-the-blank). :)

wish me luck that it all goes smoothly and i didn't forget a critical ingredient in the middle of the night..eek! T could easily tell you this is my calling card with nearly every recipe i make. ;)
