My wonderful office- mate, Heather, baked a cake for my birthday (and Tim, another co-worker whose birthday is the same day) yesterday (Oct. 3). She meant to make a chocolate pumpkin cake, but halfway through making the recipe realized there was no chocolate . . . So, it ended up being a lovely pumpkin cake with walnuts and a very nice icing/glaze on top. The really unique thing about the cake was that since Heather didn't have any toothpicks at home (who doesn't have toothpicks?!?!?), she used some dried noodles to hold up the plastic wrap away from the icing! Sometimes I seriously wonder about that girl ... definitely crafty and creative, but .... who doesn't have toothpicks!?!? Haha. Sorry, Heather.
