My mom and I went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. While eating, I was thinking, maybe I should buy a cheesecake to take to a family gathering this weekend - because I could pick different kinds and get something everyone likes. I about keeled over and . People seriously pay $50 for a dessert? I am a big time baker and have made my own cheesecakes, cakes, pies, etc from scratch myself - so I never buy desserts. I just can't imagine EVER paying that kind of money for a dessert - no matter how good it is. So needless to say, I'm going to my family gathering with a homemade German Chocolate cake and a Lemon Raspberry cake.
