First Cake

First cake I've ever decorated with colored frosting anyway. I'm pretty happy with it. Here is what I was going for...

Here is how it turned out...

I used a gingerbread cake with cream cheese frosting. The cake is mainly for the parents.

For the kids I made cupcakes. Yellow cake mix from a box with homemade chocolate frosting from the recipe on the box of Hersey's cocoa powder. My favorite combination, yum. And to add to the crazy baking and decorating going on this weekend, I decorated the cupcakes with letters. Each kid will get one with the first letter of his or her name. It is a Super Reader party and all.

Last weekend was the favors, this weekend, all this. I hope everyone likes it! The only problem, I still have 18 more cupcakes sitting around uniced and no frosting whatsoever left in the house and I'm pretty burned out to make any more. What to do, what to do.

I promise, promise, promise that some pictures of the kids WILL appear in the very next blog, really. Our camera's ability to hold charge in the battery is slowly decreasing. We will be getting a new one in the near future, we are looking at something like this one.

But for now, I will be getting some rest, tomorrow is the big day, Olivia the Kindergarten's party! I believe the guest count is at least 30 kids that have RSVPed yes. I have goody bags and cake made for at least 40. Seven pizzas are ordered. I have organized rides for 6 kids from school who are usually in after care. I am a super-mom, and who am I kidding? I will not be resting tonight, I will be up late obsessing about bringing extra socks and if the party room will look too bare. In any case, it will all be over this time tomorrow. Wish me, I mean Olivia, luck. ;)

    You did a great job. I'm really impressed.

    Use the leftover cupcakes as shortcake. Cut them in half, put fruit on it and add milk.

    Shortcake, yum, what a good idea! I think we will definately be doing that. After we get over the sugar high from the cream cheese frosting that is. ;)
