It's Amazing What You Can Do...

With an oven that doesn't suck paint chips. I've been the slacker parent at Ash's school this year with holiday treats. I managed to bring in store bought cookies for Halloween but completely missed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day, and had it not been for the recent installation of our new oven (that actually evenly heats to the temperature you dial it too - imagine that!) I probably would've let Easter slide by as well. But never fear, new oven + cupcakes + blue frosting + green sprinkles + Peeps + jelly beans = the kids at school no longer assume Ash is being raised in a home without a kitchen. Phew, now on to the next bullet to dodge...

It's so funny how when I was a kid and we brought in homemade treats I wished we could buy them. Now it's the other way around although we could often trade homemade treats in our lunches for Twinkies or other store bought treats way back when.
They are darling cupcakes and I bet Ashton loved them.

They look awesome! I am impressed you can still bring in home made treats... all of our schools (Calebs pre- school included) send home notes the 1 st day of school saying it is a state law that all treats brought in NEED to be store bought! That gets so darn expensive! To buy 24 cupcakes is like $20.... oh how I wish I could bake them :-)

Keep up the great work! His bday cake next?
