Some Favorite Things

Sam Houston High Band Boosters had a BBQ and bake sale today. I made this cake for the fund raiser. The Gum Drop Cake was my very favorite childhood birthday cake. I might have been five or six years old when Mom made it. I thought the gum drops looked like jewels on a princess crown. My birthday is coming up in a couple weeks, and I felt nostalgic. Good thing I didn’t aspire to be a professional cake decorator. I’m terrible! Icing oozed down the sides before I even got it to the school this morning. I’d be surprised if anyone buys it!

Eric and Andrew left on an overnight trip with their youth group yesterday afternoon for a Christian rock concert in Beaumont called Hot Hearts. Sounds quite Valentiney, but it’s only January. Without kids for the night, Bob and I enjoyed an evening out. We ate dinner at my favorite Lake Charles restaurant, DeAngelo’s. And their special was my favorite fish – grouper. So good.

What are some of your favorites?

I think the cake is beautiful! Might have to try that for Alex some day...if she'll ever agree to give up the Thomas (the tank engine) cake!
