K's birthday was last Friday. For school we wanted to bring in a cake to celebrate. But K doesn't do cake. What to do? Her teacher suggested cupcakes. I questioned if she had ever met my picky daughter. So we made a rainbow jello "cake". It was so cool! Here is a picture of the one we made:
I know! Isn't it so cool? The best part was that the teacher's used it as a lesson on color spectrum. You see - you only make the blue, yellow and red layers. It makes the orange and green itself! So COOL! The kids all like it (even the ones who think K is weird for not eating cake).
Then for her party at our house the next day, we made an ice cream "cake". Again, this was a cake without cake. It was vanilla gummy bear "cake". People were weirdly impressed: guest - "wow! How did you do that?" me- "umm..I melted 2 cartons of vanilla ice cream and layered them with two packages of gummy bears." Here is a picture of it. Truly it is self-explanatory (it even has the bowl shape):
Seriously, I am still not sure how I ended up with children who won't eat cake- but at least we're having fun with it. Wonder what we will come up with for B's birthday in 2 months??!!
