So, its our first year at school (I know its Alexia's first year, but still!) and this is our first time participating in the cake contest so we decided to go big... well, that's sort of the way that we do stuff for some reason. Any how, I got this fabulous skeleton jello mold from Oriental Trading Co. my sweet little girl and her dear daddy filled it with No-Bake cheese cake and then painted it with "guts" (cherry filling) and put it into a miniature coffin and brought their prize cake to the judges. They took 2nd place... not bad for a 5 year old and her Dad! I thought it came out #1, but then I'm sure I'm biased. Have a look for yourself!
They were heading to deliver their cake to the judges as I was heading to Half Moon Bay for a weekend of art and new friends!
