worth the wait (weight?)

after dinner and after dishes, we finally tasted the double layer pumpkin cheesecake i made last night. all of the extra chill time really paid off and i definitely feel more confident about making pies/cheesecake now. my sister and her boyfriend both asked for seconds, yay! it's definitely a candidate for the thanksgiving menu since it can be done ahead.

i said i wasn't going to make a complicated pumpkin but this pattern i found on the internerd was tougher than it looked this morning. it's a lot of smaller cuts that are really close to one another. i learned from past mistakes and cut out the smaller inside details first. i wish it didn't take so long since i meant to carve two designs but the other will have to wait. here i am past bedtime again, i am afraid i might sleep through halloween if i don't sneak a nap in after work.

I'm not sure what looks better the cheesecake or the carved pumpkin. Both turned out beautiful.

thanks. the pumpkin was thrown out yesterday, the cheesecake didn't have as much of a chance lasting only until saturday.
