    [ A Gugelhupf or Gugelhopf is a southern German, Austrian, Swiss and Alsatian term for a marble cake or Bundt cake. The part "Gugel-" is a variation of the Middle High German word Kugel ("ball" or "globe"). The part "-hupf" relates to the verb "hüpfen" (jump) and is a reference to the cake surface going up while being baked. wikipedia ]

    So you made a concrete bundt cake? Tasty! I bet you are popular with the dentist! :)

    How did this tradition start?

    Wonderful, Red!

    I'm sorry to say that I don't think I took a single picture on New Year's Eve. I blame it on being tired.

    Our normal tradition is to have a good friend or two over for dinner, drink a glass of champagne - or two - and then I usually go to sleep before midnight.:tongue: True. However, this year my husband and I had dinner alone, and suddenly found ourselves watching our local Public Television Station watching James Taylor and Carole King and then a special on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - and suddenly it was 12:10AM! Next the phone rang - it was our daughter calling to wish us "Happy New Year!":cloud-9-039:

    Fireworks!!

    Had to do some rocket science in my workshop. Don't usually take on these technically advanced things but how hard can it be? Well. The stabilizer fin for holding the course towards outer space had broke off. Some NASA-approved steel wire fixed that easy.
