valentines day fun

Last month I caught a few minutes of Rachael Ray and the Cake Boss was a guest.  He made a checkerboard cake.  It was impressive.  A few days after, the kids started talking about me baking a cake for valentines day.  So I suggested this one.  It took awhile to find multiple size round cookie cutters, but I finally did.

In between layers I made a diffferent frosting.  It's my Mom's frosting.  It was a nice touch to have two kinds.  Plus it was fun having pink for valentines day.
I learned this frosting technique from the Cake Boss. 
Tadah!!!  It was fun to make and yummy to eat!
For Mason's class party we had sundaes.  They exchanged Valentines. Then it was time to clean up.  The schools seem to be making parties shorter and shorter. It's rather frustrating.

By the time I made it down to Carson's class they were already finished with their activities.  I was dissappointed.   Although, this is a super cute picture of his class. :)

Ethans principal allows no parties. Graces allows 15 minutes. They have to save all the "non instruction" time for fundraiser assemblies.
