make ahead dessert for Thanksgiving  
Hi all,

I'm looking for a dessert I can make ahead for Thanksgiving, like something I can make on Sunday. I'm having surgery on Monday on my knee and will not be able to stand long enough to make something once I get home.

Thanks!

That's a broad question - any number of desserts would work.
That said...I dont know how Thanksgivingy it is, my parents have adopted it as their new favorite Christmas dessert, but I found this recipe a couple of years ago for an Orange Almond cake that's really yummy:

The thing thats neat about it is that the cake stays good for a few days, and our family tends to be SLOW on the cake eating thing, so cakes that dont go stale before we can finish them are pretty darn awesome.
