When the Tournament of Roses this morning announced Paula Deen as Grand Marshal of the 2011 Rose Parade, we just knew she’d bring the goods — the baked goods.
Take a gander at the sugar rose-petal cake she whipped up for the occasion.
The members of the Royal Court keep their eyes trained on that delectable prize, in the photo at top.

And the Star-News reports Deen is already serving up suggestions for your New Year’s Day party platter:
“Let me tell you, praline French toast, it’s out of this world, killer,” she said. “And some egg cups with Bearnaise sauce, or any kind of sauce.”

The Tournament of Roses today announced Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III as the 2010 Rose Parade grand marshal.

In January, Sullenberger rose to national attention after safely guiding US Airways Flight 1549 into New York’s Hudson River during an emergency landing.

He is a resident of Danville.

More from the TofR press release:

“Captain Sully saved the lives of 155 people and is an excellent
example of the everyday American hero,” said Jeffrey Throop, acting
president of the Tournament of Roses. “With his theme, A Cut Above the Rest,
President Gary DiSano wanted to honor those who strive to make every
effort better than the last. Sullenberger has certainly shown how we
can do that and we are honored to have him host the 2010 festivities.”

“It
has long been a family tradition to watch the Rose Parade,” said
Captain Sullenberger. “I am incredibly honored to be named the Grand
Marshal of such a revered American institution.”
