Pumpkin Cookie Dough Rolo Brownies




In the last two days I have made 3 large batches of lemon curd.   I am in the middle of prepping and getting to make a wedding cake for Saturday.  Three tiered lemon cake with lemon curd, a meringue icing, covered in coconut with 8 purple star gazer flowers.   I have 3 giant bags of coconut in my cupboard and I have cleared out the fridge.  The next two days will be very busy, baking, icing, layering, covering and decorating.

I have been trying to get as much done as I can since putting together a wedding cake with a 10 month old can be a bit challenging.   Tomorrow night I am also going to see "Whose Line is it Anyway?" live with my mom and my sister.  Do you like that show?  I love it.  I don't get the new ones unfortunately but I used to love it when Drew Carey was the desk man.  I am looking forward to some good improv and some good laughs.



And Saturday after this cake is done I get to celebrate my birthday with a nice dinner and brunch with friends.  Not to mention a few desserts just for me.

Enjoy these brownies while I am stuck in the kitchen for the next two days and wish me luck.

P.S Stay tuned for my blogiversary/birthday giveaway this Saturday!
