Taking into account that I am a former theatre nerd, brownie points to anyone who can catch the title reference.  Aaaaand GO!
My friend/mentor/womanofallworldlyknowledge Jeanie, has a tradition called the New Years Eve Eve party.  That’s the night *before* the night before the new year.  (December 30th, for anyone who’s completely confused.)
Jeanie’s favorite treat in the world is the princess torte: White chiffon cake with pastry cream and raspberry jam fillings, topped with whipped cream.  A proper Princess Torte is then draped with marzipan.  However, for NYEE we usually do a variation without the marzipan, and call it a Prince Torte.
Every year, I try to out-do myself from the year before.  Getting ready for 2012, the projects are starting to get bigger…

The photo does not even cover 1/3 of the table spread.
There was so much food!
