Pumpkin cheese rolls are one of my favorite things to bake. It is a family recipe with homemade cream cheese frosting that is very nostalgic to my childhood. I bake it for my rotation or as a way to decompress, but I don’t usually eat what I bake – I give it to those around me as a way to also show my appreciation for my friends who have helped me during medical school.

Here is my histology themed bake titled, “The Microtomy Accident.”
We had a Halloween bake-off in the lab and this was my submission. It won “most spooky!”

The picture is from August 30, 2010 and is a cake made by one of my medical students for the “fin de stage” – a tradition at the end of a rotation. The rotation in our pathology lab put a big emphasis on autopsy pathology. The cake is an open body (skin flaps left, right, and above) in which one recognizes the trachea, bronchi, lungs, liver, stomach, and intestines.
It tasted very good!
