Donna, since you are working so hard, I am going to let the above slap be free.  But don't start expecting any more   Cheeky

Tell Miss Prissy hello!!

I thought I had 4 more free slaps.  Dunno  Miss Prissy has been on vacation so I have been keeping track. I could be wrong.   Dunno
Miss Prissy says hello. 

Donna, you would have had 4 free slaps but I did not count the one above in a separate post since you are working so hard on the baking.  So you have 5 free slaps left.   Thumbs Up

Well tonight was my second night of baking cakes and cupcakes. I was at my parents house this time. I was thinking of seriously getting back to cake decorating like I did years ago. But I might want to think twice. The batch I baked the other night, the chocolate cake and cupcakes sunk in and shrunk after I took them out of the oven. Crying   So I tried chocolate again tonight in my parents oven and it turned out great.  Thumbs Up  The only thing I could think I did wrong with the first batch is I mixed two cake mixes together and possibly added too much oil. It might help to put on glasses when I read the instructions.   Duh   

Well tonight was going really well. I had some cakes on the counter cooling while another batch baked in the oven. I had 25 minutes so I decided to get some marathon training in and took a run around the neighborhood while the cakes baked.  Well I came back into the house after my run and my parents are standing in the kitchen giving me this look. And I said "What?" My mom looked over at the counter and    Yikes Yikes Yikes

Oh Cris - think positively.  Her parents had decorated all of the cupcakes for Donna!  That's my guess.

BTW - I love, love, love your signature picture!

"What?  Do I look guilty of something???   
OK, I did taste the cakes. Well someone had to make sure they were
edible enough for human consumption. And...yes, they were great.
I did leave a little bit for decorating. Gamma cleaned up the mess before
a picture was taken, but see I did leave some. Cake anyone??"



(Jena:  There is a picture of my dog with a guilty look on his face and
the second picture shows what is left of the cakes. He ate half of one
and about a fourth of another 9 inch round cakes.)

I wish there was some way to ship them and have them get there in one piece.
