Celebrate It! Blog Party #10

What have you been celebrating lately? Here at The Freshman Cook we have been celebrating this week with the air turned off and the windows open.  Fall is here in North Carolina and I am loving it! It is my favorite time of year!  We lived in the southwest for most of my married life, and fall was usually late to get there, and didn't stay very long. So this is truly something to celebrate and enjoy!

Carmelized Apple Spice Cake

Here in North Carolina, fall dropped by today! So, to celebrate my favorite time of the year, I have a Carmelized Apple Spice Cake for your dessert time pleasure. Today, I'm participating with over 40 other bloggers in a LorAnn Oil and Flavors Recipe Round-Up! Do you know LorAnn Oil ? They produce an incredible variety of oils and flavorings, and have done so for over 50 years. They also offer other items such as candy making and baking supplies, making them your "go to" company. Check them out! But check out my Carmelized Apple Spice Cake first! 
I used a special cake mold to make a spice cake, carmelized some apples,
melted some caramels, put it all together, and tasted fall!

Celebrate It! Blog Party #9

It's time for Celebrate It!

Dessert Sushi!!!

Today, I am visiting over at Bacon Time with the Hungry Hypo, and I brought something special with me. Kind of a faux dessert, really. I call it Dessert Sushi! It looks like sushi, but tastes like candy, and it is lots of fun!

Chocolate Caramel Apple Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

This month the #BundtBakers cake was a lot of fun! How does Chocolate Caramel Apple Bundt Cake sound? I know, sounds good, right? The theme this month was Autumn Harvest, so my brain immediately went to apples. But I wanted to add a little decadence to this treat, so I stuffed the cake with chunks of apple, and then I topped it with chocolate fudge sauce, apple pie filling, and caramel sauce. Definitely, decadence elevated!

Blogland Tour!

Today I am taking part in The Blogland Tour. Thank you to Shannon from Bohemium Junktion for including me in this fun and interesting activity. The Blogland Tour is a great way to learn about who I am and why I am a blogger, and then I will link you to another blogger so you can learn more about her also. It's a lot of fun and so interesting, plus you get a lot on insight into other blogs and what makes them tick! So here we go:

1. What am I working on right now?
    For the last few days I have been working on several fall posts. I have a seasonal Bundt Cake coming up, and I have been baking a lot for an event happening in a couple weeks. I also am half way through some fall cupcakes, some bar desserts, and I have a list of about 20 things to make, of which only half will ever happen. I love making seasonal items and autumn is my favorite, so the blog is loaded with them. In past years I have made this Apple Cinnamon Creme Brulee that is one of my favorites.
