Scout Cake Baking

Our old scout pack used to do a Cake Auction this time of year, so we’re used to baking cakes by now. Our new pack, though, doesn’t sell the cakes off to raise money (they make plenty in popcorn sales apparently)…instead they EAT THEM ALL UP!  The kids were so excited. They put ALL the frosting and ALL the sprinkles on them.  Look:

Greg's Christmas themed cake of love and joy
G’s Christmas themed cake of love and joy
Ben's cake of randomness.
B’s cake of randomness.
Even after I took the pictures, they kept coming back and sprinkling on "just a little bit" more.

And for those of you asking “Why all the blue and yellow?” Well, our old pack did scout themed cakes and so the original plan had been to make a Tiger Cub seal and a Webelos seal. Once we found out we could make whatever we wanted, those intricate design plans went way out the window. Whew! Was I ever a relieved Mama.
