“At The Meatloaf Bakery, which ultimately became trade marked, everything looked like a pastry, cupcakes, pies, layer cakes, the frosting was mashed potatoes, vegetables, and pasta.  Whatever we came up with, it complimented the particular recipe. It was so much fun, hard but fun.   -Cynthia Kallile
