Busy Baker

I’ve been a little busy with the baking lately.  Caitlin had their Blue and Orange meet this past weekend so I made some cupcakes to take for the tailgate.  They were soooo cute.  I frosted 1/2 of them blue and the other 1/2 orange.  Then I made the Illinois “I” out of candy melts and sprinkled them blue and orange.  Cute, cute, cute.  Sadly…….they had to sit in the car during the meet, and while it was a beautiful cool fall day, it was too warm in the car and the “I”s melted.  I was so disappointed.  So I was sure to post the before photo on FB so the girls could see that they really were cute and I didn’t purposely make ugly cupcakes!DSC_0699

This Friday Conner is hosting a bake sale to benefit a local PTO group for his DSC_0014senior project.  So I thought I would make a few things for him to take.  I dipped Oreos in pink candy melts and made pigs and then dipped some in green to make frogs.  I’ve done the frogs before for a swim function…but the pigs were new and I love how cute they look. 


DSC_0017He is making cake pops and cookies as his donation……I’m sure I’ll be doing some of the decorating since he doesn’t quite have the patience for such things. DSC_0007

I’ll post some photos of those goodies later this week.
