Nothing The Same - But That's Alright

In past years there was everything on hand
special containers and huge assortment of paper and ribbon
for wrapping.
No longer so over the last couple of years.
Amazon and gift cards easier for this one and now not much of that.
The baking of these 2 cakes was a thought that surfaced
and not on hand what I would have had in the past to wrap them.
Usually just share on plate wrapped with foil
but these cakes needed to be packed a little more secure.
Wish I had Christmas shopping bags to put them in
but all is fine.
I checked on line ( to see if you keep them in the freezer ) and the wonderful thing about these Rum cakes
is that they will last for months just covered or in frig and they are super moist.

They are on plate, doily, cardboard insert in center opening keeps foil from sticking to cake,
covered with foil, then some wrapping paper and I had large zip lock bags
to put them in.   Do keep zip lock bags on hand in every size and this super size
is great for large items.

Sky, thank you again for the paper roll idea and I unrolled some paper toweling for the
cardboard insert.
Balisha, next time out and about will pick up a large roll of cellophane :)

I still love to bake, a lot to clean up and seems it is relaxing to me at this time.
Watch very little television, just news and it is depressing but need to know if I am still
on the planet.   Need to start reading more as books are piled everywhere....
