Ingredients you will need:

1 box Gingerbread cake mix
1 can pumpkin puree
4 boxes of butterscotch pudding
1 egg
Pie spice (allspice, nutmeg,, cinnamon
1 1/4 cup water
4 cups milk of your choosing (I use soy)
1 carton Cool Whip

Begin by baking your gingerbread cake; mix the egg, mix, and water, cook at 350 degrees until brown on top. Let the cake cool COMPLETELY.
While it’s cooking, prepare your pudding mix; whip together the milk and pudding powder, then slowly add in the pumpkin puree until a creamy, smooth texture is achieved.

When your cake is COMPLETELY cooled, crumble it; then begin by pouring 1/4 of it into your serving dish. Layer 1/2 your pudding mix on top, 1/4 the cake crumble, 1/2 the cool whip, and repeat. Finish off with a few crumbles and spices as garnish.

Patricia Field’s Valentine’s Ball

After the IFB conference and workshops I went home and immediately changed to go to the Patricia Field Valetnine’s ball. I got there early to take some backstage pictures of the models getting ready, hair and make up and such. All of the models were professional dancers from various companies around New York City. Make up was by Llamasque, who I LOVE for their pigments. THe event was co-hosted by the fabulous DJ Cassidy, and sponsored by (in addition to Llamasque) Trojan Vibrations, Cafe Bustello, and Belvedere Vodka, YUM!

Around 10 pm the party was starting. Belvedere had reps making drinks at bars lining the entire wall of the Captiale’s ballroom. The model/dancer’s were go go dacing all around, and guests were coming in for photo ops dressed like the club kids of her demographic. I took my photo taken, took some with some other fabulous guests, and mingled about. The party was also in celebration of Patricia’s birthday so she was merrily drinking and looking fabulous. Thankfully I managed to get into the VIP section, meeting up with Richie Rich, Angela Simmons, and a number of fabulous people.
