    ...ours is concrete casting - this year a Gugelhopf

    red_gugelhopf.

    [ 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:
