I'm all kinda proud these past few days.
My kids never, I repeat, never fail to amaze me!
Our church fair was this weekend and Maddy wanted to enter the bake off.
So we started thinking of how we could top last years cake.
After spying these sweet silicon cupcake flower pot holder thingamabobs...
She knew just where she was headed.
You can bake the cake right in those silicone pots.
After she baked them, she cut off the top part leaving a smooth flat surface for frosting.
While her cakes were cooling, she started working on her veggies.
Who says you can't play with your food.. ha!
The carrot was her first attempt and was pretty easy.
And once she got the hang of it, she was on a roll!
And just in case the judges weren't sure what veggie they were about to eat, She made labels.
These were made by cutting out true seed packets and gluing them on label stakes.
We found our seed packets and stakes at Wal Mart in the garden center.
I think her sweet pea was my favorite!
A little onion.
And what garden is complete without a head of cauliflower?
This was the tray she presented to the fair.
My heart about burst with momma pride.
I think she was pretty proud too.
And if the cupcakes were not enough, she baked some double chocolate brownies!
After much hard work and a very messy kitchen,
It paid off!!
Our girl won 1st in the cupcake and brownie division.
Our friends at church wanted to know where she got her mad baking skills....
All I can say is it was not from me..LOL
I'm a break and bake cookie kinda girl ;)
