Thanks everybody!

Annie - he may have hit me back with his handbag - this was San Francisco after all!  Though, thinking about it, my gay friends have much better manners than that.

Julie - that’s what I thought when I saw the splotches but I think it’s much easier on a roulade than on a cake. It could have used a bit more coffee anyways for my taste. I used espresso, no powdered coffee, though, that may give a bit more of a coffee pang.

I was thinking that theme could include anything from the Mostly Flourless chapter of RHC, or any similar item from Rose’s other books.  From the Cake Bible, that would include the Bittersweet Cocoa-Almond Genoise, the Chocolate Cloud and Cocoa Souffle rolls, and the Cheesecakes and Oblivions.  In the spirit of the RHC chapter, using cake or crust around a filling would be fine.  Pies, too.

I think this is our theme for November.

For December, I was thinking we should just do a holiday theme- post whatever you’re baking for the holidays. 
What do you all think?

Thanks for the heads-up. I agree with the holiday baking theme for December.

OK, flourless it is for November.  I have the new baking strips that I am inaugurating with this cake, and as per Julie’s suggestion in another thread “...something dark and chocolate-y…”  I think the bittersweet almond genoise is the trick!  One round already done, finishing the second tomorrow. something with raspberry for a filling…  (drool)  ... and an almond mousseline frosting…

Edit: Thanks Patricia and Rozanne! I’m all set, and will have great Pumpkin Cheesecake for Thanksgiving!

I have a big favor to ask of one of you if I may - please, pretty please! Due to a last minute change in plans (involving a trade show, a customer visit, and our vacation house) I ended up separated from my RHC for Thanksgiving. And I soooo would like to make the Pumpkin Cheesecake. Could I bother somebody to shoot me the ingredients and oven times and ingredients in a PM? That would be very very nice, and save my day…

For December, I’ll be making B?che de No?l, the Christmas Log cake in TCB. I love making it. It is fun to do and always makes a big impression with guests. It takes time and patience, but is not difficult at all if you are already comfortable with making the Chocolate Cloud Roll. I hope others do the B?che de No?l as well, because I would love to see the photos to learn how others decorate this lovely cake. And of course, Christmas would not be Christmas without a fruit cake. My husband loves them so much that I had to bake two last year.  I’m already looking forward to the Christmas baking.
