Time is flying as usual and it’s already the END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. Teddy’s school community ROCKS and this year I got a little more involved in the school carnival, taking on the role of Jolly Jar co-coordinator (LOL) because the jolly jar booth didn’t have anyone to coordinate it this year, and the kids fricking LOVE this booth (it is jammed with a huge lineup as soon as the bell rings at 3pm). What the heck is a jolly jar, you ask? It’s a jar ‘o’ fun that is decorated in a (hopefully) creative way, filled with fun things (candy usually, little toys or crafting materials or a gift card etc) that are sold for $3 each as a fundraiser for the school, and there are prizes for most creative jars! For three weeks prior to the carnival, the kids bring in their decorated jars and they all stand around and oooh and ahhh over their favourites and dream about which ones they want… and it’s just so CUTE. The jolly jar booth can never die!!! Anyhoo, I made two cake walk cakes once again! I went for a “blast of candy” design once again, and then decided to unicorn-it-up for the second cake.
Does a unicorn say “neigh?” I was going to write “I AM MAGICAL” but then I didn’t want that somehow to be misconstrued as someone thinking I was saying that about my own cakes – braggarts be damned. If the cake was for adults, “HORNY” would’ve been mildly funny for one millisecond, but maybe not. Sometimes I still think my unicorn looks like a pig with a shower cap on, but perhaps I am just overly critical, hehe. I will forever love school carnivals (I still remember our singular precious school carnival at my elementary school – now I know why there were never very many, THEY ARE A LOT OF WORK! KIDS, YOUR PARENTS ARE WORKIN’ OVERTIME LITERALLY FOR YA!) and cake walks are what dreams and nightmares are made of (the nightmare of not winning a cake… SAD! But hopefully your friend will share cake with you.) xo Lyndsay
