How was your Thanksgiving holiday? I do hope it was full of love, gratitude, and good food. I love spending the day with my family. This year we had seven of my aunt's eight kids and their families (the missing one is currently honeymooning), my family, and my granny all in the same house. It was bustling, noisy, and so fun. I brought some of my own meal, but I was happy to find that I could still have a few things since there's another in the family with a dairy aversion. I didn't feel as though I missed out, except when the lemon meringue and cheesecake were unveiled. But it's alright because I had a homemade pumpkin pie all to myself, and I ate some for breakfast this morning too.
I am in love with this glaze. the ginger, the apple; it's heavenly. And very sweet; so you have to pair it with something delicious and not too sugary or else the entire experience is a bit overwhelming. Check out my zupas post for the chocolate applesauce cakies I made (gluten and dairy free) to accompany the glaze and apple chips. I wish you could see Aaron's favorite way to eat them, take off the cupcake paper, open mouth as wide as possible, and stuff the entire cake in.
He does that with a lot of cupcakes.
