A Toy October 18, 2010

I got a new toy a couple of weeks ago.

It was a surprise.

And I was BEYOND thrilled.

I use a hand mixer when mixing cakes. It works wonderfully and has yet to fail me.

However, if you try to mix icing with a hand mixer, you will burn it up.

So don’t try it.

I just saved you $40 – $70.

You’re welcome.

Since I’ve been decorating cakes, cupcakes, and teenybites lately, a hand mixer hasn’t been sufficient. I have been borrowing  a KitchenAid stand mixer from a friend. However, I knew he wanted it back. It was brand new and he only used it once before I stole it.

Anyhow, Mama and I went shopping one Saturday (like we always do) and she told me to check on a KitchenAid mixer.

EXCUSE ME?! For what?!

Apparently, Daddy had been comparing prices on mixers for a while and they planned to buy me one! O.M.G. I was about to be the owner of a brand new KitchenAid mixer! (In case you haven’t realized this little fact just yet…my parents ROCK. I’m sorry they aren’t yours.)

So, we looked around and I found one I wanted. It’s beautiful! It’s Artisian! And, it’s RED!

Oh, and thank you PeeWee for your concern about my having a mixer! Love you!

 

Gross! October 12, 2010

I made something last week.

I was told by everyone who saw them that they were gross.

Well good. They are supposed to be.

Halloween is right around the corner, for goodness sakes!

And…I made them for kids.

My kids.

And they’ll eat just about anything.

Except eggs. Ca doesn’t like eggs.

And peanut butter. Girlfriend doesn’t like peanut butter.

But, other than that, they’ll eat anything…even zombie toes!

 

Touchdown! October 11, 2010

Last Wednesday, my dear cousin texted me with a request. She asked if I could make those “cake things” with brownies. I told her yes. Then she asked if I could make them in the shape of footballs. I told her yes again. Then, she tells me that she needs them for her boyfriend’s birthday on Monday. I told her that wouldn’t be a problem. Before we ended our conversation, I asked her if she wanted them this weekend, knowing that most people celebrate birthdays on weekends. She told me that it would be nice if I could have them by the weekend. Ok, no problem. It’s only Wednesday.

Then, I remember that I am supposed to be going to watch the triplets Saturday morning. Bob was playing football and the girls were cheering. This meant that I would have to get the footballs to my cousin Friday night.

Wait, what?

I freaked out a little bit.

Then I ate some chocolate.

Then I decided it was feasible.

So, I got to work. I must say that this is one of the best ideas, as far as teenybites go. These little treats were so cute. I would have never thought to make footballs out of these. Such an appropriate idea for this time of year. And they were delicious, too!

My cousin and her boyfriend are both Auburn fans, so she requested that the teenybites be Auburn themed. You’ll have to excuse my piping. My piping skills aren’t quite where they need to be.

I received another text last night that simply said, “Yummmmm!”

Good idea SueSue! I’m glad you guys enjoyed them!
