Baking Day

Today was baking day for me. I have been baking all afternoon. However, none of it will go in the freezer and none of it will be saved for us. It is all going out of the house. First I made 5 Red Velvet Cakes for this: It is a volcano cake. It is 5 layers with chocolate icing and then white icing colored red, orange,and yellow for the lava. I made a whole in the top so we can put a votive candle with dry ice in it so it will smoke tomorrow. The Cub Scouts Blue and Gold Banquet is tomorrow morning and this is the centerpiece for our table. The theme is Jurassic so we are going to put plastic and a few homemade clay dinosaurs around the cake. I think the boys will love it. Especially the smoke.
Then with the left over batter I made a dozen cupcakes for a cake walk. And then I bake peanut butter cookies with kisses in the center to take to the bluegrass jam tonight. So I am through cooking and we are probably headed to eat out. Just because I don't want to cook anything else. TGIF!
