Cakes and Cookies

This past week was crazy, but lots of fun. My grandmothers birthday was Thursday, Oct. 16. (Don't hold me to that one.) Anyway, we went down Friday after work and Saturday celebrated her birthday. I wanted to make her a cake so I did but I also wanted to make a few other things. I had originally thought of making the kids of The Preacher's Wife some cookies. I just got these cool new sports cookie cutters.Then I had leftover batter so I made a small cake for "the girl" and some mini football cakes. Can you say over ambitious. Making all of this was fun it was the transporting them 2 1/2 hours that was not the fun part. I'll get back to that first, here are the pics.

This is Grand's cake.

Boy #1,#2, and#3's cookies.LOL. Luckily I took the picture before they turned. By the time I got them to the kids they were mutating into a green jersey. The black food coloring had bled and was turning the edges of the number green. Blah! I hate black food coloring. It always bleeds on me. If anyone know how to stop that let me know!Please.

Mini Footballs!

Lastly, "the girls" cake.

.....back to the transporting part. In my mom's car we had four people, a dog, and my lap stacked with three cake boxes trying to get to Ider and on the way attempting to eat. The longest two hours!!!! I didn't think the cakes were going to make it. I was holding on for dear life. Around every curve I attempted to move with the motion of the car so the cakes wouldn't slide. But they made it safe and sound. With the exception of the bleeding jerseys!LOL!

I have got to do some more homework. Just another joy in my life!!!HaHa! Hope you all have a great day! Love you all!!
