Cake Decorating, Grade 1

The PTA at our elementary school has a cake decorating contest and auction each year. All students are eligible to participate. This was the first year for Headless Boy #2 to participate. There are several categories to enter; he chose school spirit. They are the "Superstars" so of course he made a star cake!
They are allowed to bring it to the school with a coating of powdered sugar mixed with milk so it has a 'shell' on it. There can be no other decoration and they can only use food items to decorate it. Mama worked hard on that part.

I mixed the blue icing and sent marshmallows for decorating. The inside is supposed to be a small star. It didn't quite turn out that way. He also used white piping to go along the edges.

Not only did I have to buy all of the supplies, I also had to buy the cake back. He couldn't live without getting his cake. I guess $2 isn't too bad-and it tasted pretty good, too!

Stay tuned for Part 2...

Ha - that isn't really fundraising is it? Cause I mean, isn't fundraising in existence so that the cost to you is reduced?

I remember my parents doing that exact same thing when I was that age too though - some things never change. :)
