I asked the girls what their favorite part was. Alyssa liked the part When Pinkalicious woke up and got out of bed and was pink all over and Samara liked it when everyone was pink at the end. They both thought the broccoli popsicles sounded gross. After the show all the actors went to the lobby and the kids could stand in line and get autographs and their parents could take pictures of the children with the actors. The line was very long so we opted out of that option! The walk back to the car in the warm dusky evening was very pleasant. We were only a few blocks from the Alamo. Samara and Nattie took a short sleep on the way home.
Back when I was teaching in North Park, Owyhee and Wendover I had the kids make cut up cakes around Easter. I found a book that had all kinds of cut up cakes put out by Angel Flake Coconut company. The best and easiest one was a big bunny with a bow tie. We made a lot of those cakes in school and I have made many at home as well. This project kind of expanded over the years and by the time I was teaching in West Wendover, it became a contest and the secretaries always got to judge the cakes. There were all kinds and styles of cakes including many designed and made by the students. The best part of the coconut flake cakes is that the coconut flakes cover up a lot of faults and give the animals a fluffy look. Of course we had carousels, balloons, trains, cars, horses teddy bears, baby chicks, bunnies and much, much more. I even had some girls use them in competition and win gold medals at state. It was a fun project the kids could go home and do a cake for special occasions because they are quite easy to do.
The girls and I decided we needed to make the bunny rabbit cake for our Easter weekend. Here are a couple pictures of it.
Look at all those smiles!
