Now this sounds good. I'm going to make your chocolate frosting to frost my next Chocolate Peanut butter Torte. It better be soon too, because this sounds devine!

I just love how creative you are, I would never even think of anything like this.
Thanks again my friend,

Thank you, Vikki. You're such a sweetheart! You are very creative yourself and I especially love what you do with your web sites. How clever!

No if I were clever I could figure out how to make them look better. But it makes me smile when I see them all decked out for Christmas so I guess that's what counts. I've got to get in the kitchen tomorrow and get some baking done. Christmas is almost here and I haven't even started. It's cold, wet and all I want to do is curl up with a good book and hot cup of tea, but no time for that.

Got the tree up and the Christmas cards found. Now to start baking, wraping and addressing. I love this time of year, but it's sure can get stressful too.

Have a Very Bless and wonderful Christmas.
