When my mother's boyfriend told me he was proposing I had to make a cake. :) This cake was actually constructed in secret right under my mother's nose, so I'm prouder of that than anything else. Flavor was great, too, I found a recipe for a really boozey gingerbread spice cake with allspice cream cheese frosting. It was definitely a success for that Christmas Eve! I had so much fun making the sugar ornament balls-- a technique I copied from a holiday cake challenge on the food network.
