Summer School and Cakes :)

This week has started off with a bang! Summer school started yesterday and I have 12 kids in my class. It is hard to get adjusted to only having 3 1/2 hours with the kids to teach Reading and Math. We have 30 minutes of computer lab daily and a 30 minute lunch, so we have them a total of 4 1/2 hours. It ends July 15th and I feel like I have so much to cover before then. It will be a fun 17 more days!

My mom and I have been taking a cake class. We took one a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. Then I started work and it was too exhausting to do that and teach, so we are doing it over the summer. We go on Monday nights and it is a lot of fun. 

This is my cake from last week. It may look pretty but it was a COMPLETE disaster. I just laugh about it now. We are required to make our own icing (which calls for Crisco). My dad said we were NOT allowed to use Crisco because it is so bad for you, so we used butter instead. AWFUL! It wouldn't have been so bad if we hadn't put the icing in a cooler... lets just say there was icing running everywhere and ALL over the place. It didn't even make in home in one piece because the top slid off. Needless to say, it met the trash can!

These are my cupcakes from this week. We made the icing the real way and they turned out cute. Remy took them to work for his co-workers. (sorry for the awful photos, my camera broke and my phone camera only works one way- I have to buy a new camera)
We start doing fondant in July and I am REALLY excited!!!


  1. These were delicious! I especially liked the icing and I'm not normally a big icing fan. Feel free to make us goodies anytime! :)

  2. I'm so glad you liked them Nicole! Next Tuesday he will bring cake! Then in July there will be treats on Thursdays :)
