Blue and Gold

Tonight was the Blue and Gold Banquet. We celebrated 100 years of scouting in America. Athanasia made a cake and brought home the prize.

The cake was six packages of Ghirardhilli brownie mix with an extra package of chocolate chips and an extra package of toasted walnuts. The pine trees, scouts, and tents were made of sugar cookie. The frosting was cream cheese frosting on the brownie. Frosting on the cookies was royal icing. The river was lined with chocolate pebbles. They really look like pebbles. It's freaky. About 1/4 of it was et and we brought it home. Must get it out of the house. Will drop it off for my nephew's children tomorrow.

Now the boys are asleep, Athanasia is preparing food for the parish tomorrow, and I am about to launch into school work.
