I asked before but didnt see a reply so here it goes do cakes become more moist by placing in tthe freezer after there done baking..because on a perfect banana cake recpe I always use it says to place in the freezer right after it is done and I do that with that cake but can you with other cakes.and if I use applesauce in a regular cake what do I omit.eggs or what.thanks hugs

My New Group!

Calling All Grandparents!

No matter if you're a "newbie" grandparent or an experienced "veteran" grandparent, this group is for you. After 30 years of being a "professional mom", I became a grandparent and realized that I suddenly had a whole new role to learn. Whether you are a long-distance grandparent, or a daily caregiver, everyone can use advice on handling situations unique to being a grandparent.

Whether you are looking for the perfect birthday gift for a 9 year old, have an awesome recipe idea for a finicky 2 year old or are dealing with navigating your way through a difficult family issue, I'm willing to bet that the wonderful men and women on JAP have a bit of wise, tried and true advice to guide you through successfully to the other side.

Let this be a safe-haven to discuss any issue relating to being a grandparent. Fun recipe ideas for children, age appropriate gift ideas, crafts, being the very best long-distance (...or short-distance!) grandparent you can be or talking your way through a difficult family situation, please feel safe and secure talking your way through to a happy ending with the wise and incredible advice of fellow JAP grandparents. Feel free to swap those ideas which were huge successes... and of course, those that were complete flops! =)

As always, please be kind, gentle, respectful and non-judgmental. Above all, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
