For Those You Food Network Watchers I’m A Judge On "Cake Wars: Christmas" This Season Beginning November 9th !!! ...

For those you Food Network watchers I’m a judge on "Cake Wars: Christmas" this season beginning November 9th! "Cake Wars: Christmas," btw, is a reality-based competition show with eight teams competing for the big prize. Shooting the show was a blast! It took 7 days to film the 6 hour-long episodes. Frankly I was shocked by how smoothly it all ran. My co-judge, pastry chef extraordinaire Sherry Yard, kept us plump, constantly sharing her homemade sweet treats.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Behold the glory of the Mark Twain, the prettiest paddle wheeler on the planet. Divine in every Dixie detail, it’s the ultimate old-timey attraction in Disneyland’s Frontierland and has been since the day it was launched, 60 years ago. Here, you see it in 1957.

Over the years, I’ve boarded that beauty more times than I can remember, and enjoyed that round-the-island journey enough times to have gone down the entire Mississippi river at least once.

So, what a surprise it was when I heard you could actually “drive” the Mark Twain, and then get a certificate that says “I drove the Mark Twain,” or something like that.

The TWA Rocket to the Moon is an icon of Disneyland’s early days. It was the centerpiece and crowning outer space touch of the original Tomorrowland, “the world of 1987.” But that wasn’t the only TWA Rocket to the Moon. I’m not talking about the smaller scale “tribute” to the original that stands in Tomorrowland today.

The iconic Space Needle is the most famous landmark from the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. Understandably so, since it was the expo’s centerpiece and crowning touch! To this day, thank goodness, it remains the super star of the Seattle skyline! But, it’s not the fair’s only mid-century modern leftover.

The beloved Bubbleator also survived. During the brief, but meaningful, run of the fair, then all the way until 1984, the world’s only bubble shaped elevator transported peeps for a short, memorable ride up and down one floor.
