What I’m Making for Thanksgiving

This year, my family is doing two separate Thanksgiving dinners. Thursday is with my mom’s side of the family. Saturday, is with my father’s side. Normally, I don’t make anything for Thanksgiving dinner. But, this year, that changes.

I’ve taken it upon myself to bake a cake for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. And, I’ve been asked to bake a cake for the Saturday get-together. Both of the recipes are going to come from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook. And one of them is extremely fitting for the Thanksgiving holiday: it’s a Thanksgiving Cake!

The Thanksgiving Cake has dried figs, raising, cranberries, apples, and pecans in it. It gets baked in a 9-inch springform pan and then drizzled with homemade caramel sauce while it’s still hot. I can’t wait to get a taste!

For Saturday, I’ll be baking the Chocolate Cake with Caramel Meringue Buttercream. I’ve made meringue buttercream before for the Apple Harvest Cupcakes I made last month and, to be honest, I can’t wait to make it again. Even though it’s an involved process and time-consuming, it is defiantly worth the extra effort.

It should be a tasty, but busy week for me in the kitchen! Check out the blog next week for posts about these recipes to see how they turned out!

Happy Thanksgiving!
