    OK so it is looking like my only (so far) Jan show is going to be kick but! Over 20 yesses and already over 200 in sales. Now I offer my hosts a yummy desert if they have 200 in outside orders before the show. heres my Q... I am making the potato chowder (anyone have an outline I can borrow?) I don't really want to bring another heavy stone, and it needs to be cheep and easy. My brain is mush as I am getting over a horrible cold (oh please be gone by Saturday!).

    So,...... any suggestions?

    Turtle Fudge Skillet Cake!

    Comfort dessert to go with the Comfort soup!:D


    Or do the Rice Cooker Cake - cheap and easy!

    make it easy and do the micro cake in the rice cooker , and also make the garlic bites in the small saute pan
    Not expensive for both Cookware to show I sell alot when they see it goes in the oven ( bookings too ) and the cake is so easy

    I was thinking of the skillet cake... it's always a big wow. Would you bake it there? Would you bring a platter too?

    I have not had luck with the rice cooker cakes. They look terrible... must be doing something wrong. Tips?

    I sound like such a newbie but I am trying to have WOW's without making my job look hard.

    LOL - I don't like the rice cooker cakes, but other people do, so I suggested it.

    I'd bring the cake mixed up, but put it in the oven before people arrive, so they smell it baking....and then pull it out and flip it on a platter in front of them. THAT is the WOW factor with the skillet cakes, IMO.

    Have you ever done it in the 10"? The 12' is so big and heavy...



    I am such a whiner today... :p

    I didn't do the Turtle Fudge Skillet in the 10", but I did do the Pineapple Upside down cake in the 10" skillet. I didn't have any problem (and it was just a cake-mix recipe too). If you aren't sure, just leave out a cup or so of batter. That'd probably be fine. Now- I was using the SS 10", so I made sure to lube it up well enough :) - and I don't know if the sides are deeper or not compared to the non-stick.

    I make it in the 10 inch all the time it comes out nice and high , I think the 12 inch ia too thin , I make it home and have it on the platter then just decorate it there . The only problem I have with that kind of dessert is everyon is on a diet in January and no one wants to eat it

    So I'm a bit worried I will not have enough even for everyone to sample of the potato soup. Should I make an extra batch here at home and bring it?

    The host decided on the chocolate cake, tried to get her to do the pineapple since I have most of the ingredients but oh well....
     
Have something to add?
