I have never been to, participated, or seen a cakewalk before. I didn’t even know what it was. Until this week. My daughter’s school held a Spring Fling (basically a small little carnival). They had a bouncy house and a big slide, and a few games, and tables to buy food and snacks. One of the attractions was a cakewalk. The school secretary had asked me to make cupcakes for the cakewalk. I, of course, accepted and went about trying to decide what I wanted to make. I finally decided on three flavors: Snickers, Lemon, and Funfetti. I got all of them made and packed up and managed to deliver them in one piece. That alone made me happy.
Snickers Cupcakes (recipe here)
Lemon cupcakes (recipe here) and I added lemon extract instead of
vanilla in the frosting
Funfetti cupcakes with vanilla buttercream (recipe here)
The ladies at the school couldn’t believe I made that many cupcakes for the cakewalk. The kids had a blast and the littlest one made a bunch of friends.
One of the teachers was put in “jail” by a student.
The various tables selling food, drinks, and sweets.
The bouncy house and slide.
One of the ladies that works with my hubby asked for a red velvet cake. So I took the opportunity to make one. 🙂 I must say I was pretty pleased with it.
