Before that day, though, we've got free rein to stock up on pastries, and we think the seasonal menu of cakes and pies at Boulder's Kim & Jake's Cakes, 641 South Broadway, looks pretty delicious.
Kim and Jake Rosenbarger are rolling out a list that includes pumpkin cake with cream-cheese icing, a mint cake terrine covered in chocolate ganache, and eggnog pie, which we'd gladly take as a reprieve from all the pumpkin and pecan varieties we'll be eating at Thanksgiving dinner.
The best part? The couple is throwing a party and offering free samples of all their new treats at their shop this Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. If you like what you taste, you can place orders on the spot.
Get your sweet feast on: You've got 44 days before resolution time.
