The time that I always find the most frustrating and not accounted for is the clean up, washing, drying, and putting away of pans, pans, pans, bowls..... not to mention the counters, floors.....

I bought it (the recipes do look good - and love the comentary) but have not tried a cake yet.
Buy Satin Ice They have a great deep red. You could also try AmericColor - much much better than Wilton gels.
