El Primero de Mayo! It’s May today…I’ll bet many of you are having a day off work…I guess I don’t need to point out that I’m not. Heh heh. Someone’s gotta bake cakes, even on holidays.
I was doing some research on what exactly is celebrated on the first of May, but have run out of time to post about it (I’m sure that’s a relief!!) Needless to say, many things are celebrated in many places today. There you go.
I made a cake today….to celebrate all the good stuff in May. It also happens to be the 7th year anniversary of AntiguaDailyPhoto, a site with the most gorgeous and interesting photos of Antigua Guatemala. So here’s a big Happy Anniversary to you!! And some cake…..
If the parrot cookie on top of the cake looks familiar, it is because I posted about it yesterday. I entered it in Lilaloa’s “think outside the cookie cutter challenge”. I made the flowers yesterday, too. So today I just had to make a delicious cake. :)
I had some more blank cookies that I had made for the challenge…so I challenged my kids to think up something to create out of the “diamond ring” cookie cutter shape. I think they came up with some pretty creative ideas!! I melted up some candy melts and they decorated the cookies themselves…Hello Kitty…A good idea Lightbulb….A happy kid of some sort….🙂And Nemo the fish!!Yes, yes they are creative kids! Wonder where they get it from….?!
Well, after all the cake and cookies….I feel a diet coming on tomorrow!! ;)
Have a festive Month of May everyone!
