1st grade is right around the corner. On Friday Weston and I went back to school to meet his teacher. I’m ready to get back to the school routine but am also a bit sad to see my baby boy grow up a little bit more. I also have been worried about our decision to send him to this magnet school that is 30 minutes from home. Is this school really any better? According to the state grades, it’s not. What about neighborhood friends? He’s the only kid at his bus stop. It was wonderful on Friday to get back in the school and FEEL the reason why I want to continue there. We got to see friends we have missed this summer and I think we both left feeling reconnected. I’m excited to see what the year holds for us. No need for me to think about it for one more second. Fast forward to today on our way home from Target which takes us by our zoned school. “Mom when will I be allowed to go to that school? I really want to go there. Last year some kids left in the middle of the year to go to another school so I could do that.” Too late kiddo. Might have had a chance last week but now you’re stuck! Oh, and I made these cupcakes for the back to school PTA lunch for the teachers. I’m loving the fondant toppers and I hope they did too!

These might be my favorite cupcakes yet. Everyone seems to love seeing a rainbow in the cupcake. I had a helper for these.

My testers say this is the best yet. I should say the testers that like coconut say it's the best. If you don't like coconut your out on this one. I did have one tester say he would like all the little pieces of paper taken off before testing. But he's 4.
These are coconut cake from scratch, vanilla buttercream from scratch dipped in chocolate from the store and sprinkled with toasted coconut (little pieces of paper). I love this cake. Next time I'm doing these dipped in white chocolate.
I've also been working on football yummies for football season. I know I won't have much time once August hits and school starts. Fall is always so busy around here. I haven't had many orders and I'm really enjoying just playing in the kitchen. It's a nice refresher. Nice, but I'm going to need some orders soon to pay for these experiments.

And now back to cake pops. I think I've got the cracking problem figured out. The last batch were good enough to send to work with Danny.
Cake pops have not taken over the kitchen. I'm trying to figure out ways to package cookies that allows people to give them as a gift. I am not entertaining cookies on sticks. Cake on sticks, yes. Cookies on sticks, no. These cookies found a home in a 1lb. candy box with a clear lid. So instead of boring candy for Valentine's Day you could give them a box of delicious cookies.
Can you tell I got a new camera? I love it! It's not super fancy, just has a big zoom. Check it out:

Christmas morning before they were allowed to touch anything. Mom and Dad need coffee before chaos.
