Don't ya hate it when your kids spring last minute school projects on you?
My DD, Sarah (11), sprang this on me when I picked her up from school yesterday afternoon. SHe had to have an edible project on an animal and a plant cell. Fortunately, I had some cake and mmf in the freezer and half a layer left over from a cake order I'm working on now. She used fruit roll ups and various candies for the cell parts and labeled them w/ wafer paper. Too funny! Her little sister just had to get in the pic w/ her
Please forgive the messy background. I have 3 little piggies for children.
OH SO ADORABLE!!! The kids and the cakes!! I just don't get why the teacher would ask for an edible project. How many kids in the class? I would think it would be too much food . . . unless she specifically asked your DD because of your skills
I immediately thought of the "Arthur" cartoons when I saw this post. Specifically the one where Arthur's teacher tastes his dad's cakes and finds all kinds of excuses to have parties so Arthur will bring in cake!
Too funny! Your daughter's cake came out great! Enjoy these times, they're gone all too fast!
Okay, you are such the cool mom!
With 7 kids, I got used to this!
But I still don't know why teachers do this! I used to love it when I started back to work, and then I got this thrown at me last minute as I'm heading off to work.....up all night doing these things!
Yours turned out great and your daughter looks very happy!
Hope YOU got an 'A'.
I'm doing so much better this time around in school with 'my' projects!
I did a cell cake in 7th grade for my life science class...it was super fun. Ya'll did a great job!
I wish my daughter had these types of projects. That is so awesome. I hope she gets a good grade for her mommy working so hard. I can just see the teacher snacking on all the goodies...lol
Awww, too cute! Great job mom!! I have 5 children myself...so no surprise there! Oh yeah...that mess in the background is appalling! Don't you clean? ...you should see the mess my piggies made today!
My son had this about two weeks ago. He is in the 9th grade and had LOTS of rules to follow (ie; no candy/substance can be used for more than one thing...etc) it was the wierdest looking "cake" I have ever seen!!! He used a bit of everything I think.....even Roman noodles!
P.S We scored 225 out of a possible 200 Let me know what yall get! LOL
I love ya'lls posts!! I always laugh on this board!
I got.... errr... I mean my daughter got an A
You know, I thought it was a really wierd assignment, especially given the climate nowadays when you cannot bring in any treats to the school. Everything has to be "healthy." Gone are the days when you could bring in cookies or cupcakes for your kid's bday. Now they want you to bring in high fiber bran muffins or some such nonsense.
Yes, the cake came home (minus some bubble gum pieces ) and my 3 yr old made quick work of demolishing the poor cells. They looked like they had been attacked by the Ebola virus by the time Miss Kate was done with them! I'm sure this isn't the last assignment we'll be beginning and finishing the night before it's due. Sheesh! I need a raise!
Yay!! Glad to hear it went over well. I know what you mean about the "health" craze at the schools. My kids can't even take fruit snacks that are made w/ all fruit juice and no added sugar! Anyway, sounds like the cake was a big hit.
