'Easy' birthday treat

'Easy' birthday treat (post #64949)


Here's the outcome of the 'easy'  birthday treats I made for my nephew yesterday. Although I cheated and bought the chocolate santa's in a bakery, It still took me most of yesterday to make the cupcakes, icing, dip them in chocolate and package them individually (the horror!). I made three batches of cookies for the teachers and a batch of Tracy's toffee (that I slightly burned) in between :o). Jens was happy, and that's all that counts!

Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.

In life, learn the rules so that you know how to break them properly.

Those are adorable!!! Very good job, as always!

Now go get some rest...

Resist the temptation to over-clean. After all, how many times do you need to kill the same germ.

Very neat!

But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

Well Done! They look wonderful and, knowing your talent, I'm sure they taste delicious too!

Thank you all :o). I'm heading over there shortly to hear the full report, although I dreamed my sister was practically being attacked at the school by furious moms who yelled at her that the stuff was inedible and how dare she bring it, LOL! I kept saying 'I never intended to do that'  in my sleep until MArco woke me up. Pregnant dreams are crazy! After that, I was awake for over an hour double checking that I had tasted everything befor it went out, LOL!
