A Boastful Baker

The kids from my mom grade made a goal to get 100% participation regarding the school's annual giving.  That means that each student in their individual homeroom had to donate at least a dollar to the school.  When they had reached their goal, I decided that I would offer to bake each child a cupcake, decorated to "epic proportion."  

Thus, when my mother came home on Friday with the news that her homeroom, as well as another homeroom in her grade, had accomplished 100% participation, I grabbed four boxes of cake mix and made a HUGE batch of frosting.  Sunday afternoon, during and after the final session of General Conference (entry regarding GC to follow), I proceeded to bake and create 65 masterpieces.  In other words, 65 works-of-art on a slab of cake... It was worth it.




For my first attempt, I'm pretty dang proud of my little creations... Not only did they taste awesome (as I've learned to add little bits of this or that to recipes, making them "my own"), but that looked pretty awesome.  Next time, they'll be even better.
*muah*

Song of the Day:  I'm currently in love with this movie called Tangled.  It's the most recent Disney animated film, and if you have not seen it before, you should.  It's funny, visually beautiful, tenderly cute, and the music's fantastic... I like it a lot.  The "love song" of the show - though it's about more than that too - is called "I See The Light," and is sung by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi.  Enjoy!
