An apple a day…

We celebrated my niece’s birthday during Thanksgiving again this year.  I don’t know how I did it, but I managed to bake a 28lbs. turkey, stuffing, cheesy lemon-artichoke hearts, brocolli-cauliflower gratin, blueberry pie (we are lucky to be in sunny CA), pecan pie, and, to top it all off, an apple birthday cake (…all in one day).  The only downside, which I hate to admit, is that I forgot to buy a gummy worm for the apple cake…and I didn’t frost it too well because of my haste…

I baked an apple spice cake in a 6″ ball and 6″ round cake pans.  I tinted the cream cheese frosting green, used a peanut butter pretzel for the stem, and used fresh mint leaves from our garden for the leaves.
