Last night was the annual Blue and Gold Banquet for the Cub Scouts. This is the second year that Kimball and our family have been invited to participate. One of the activities is a father-son cake making/decorating contest. Last year, Jared & Kimball did this, so they had a reputation to uphold this time around.
The theme this year was America the Beautiful. They toyed with doing another Star Wars themed cake anyway, then talked about crazy ideas including Mt. Rushmore, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial. Finally, they went a different direction: an Indain wigwam.
Kimball helped bake the cakes (at the neighbors, as our oven is still dead,) color the fondant, roll out the fondant, and all by himself he painted the designs on the wigwam, made a Native American out of fondant, and made a woodpile and a fire pit out of fondant, chocolate sticks, and a Thin Mint cookie. I was proud of him--he's such a little artist.
Here's some footage of the construction.
Now, if I can just stop myself from eating the remaining half!
Coming later today: my interview with Tamara. We had a great time gabbing away, and I think you'll be pleased to learn more about her. So check back in.
