Cake Contest

Briarwood's Missions Conference was last week and they have a "Cake Decorating Contest" every year - they separate adult and kids (to be fair I guess...and more people win that way). You have to decorate a cake in honor of one of the attending missionaries and money is given to the missionaries whose cake wins - 1st, 2nd, or 3rd prize.


Well, the day before the contest we were looking at the people who had signed up and only two kids had signed up! I thought, this is GREAT Noah and Anna could enter a cake and they would have to at least win 3rd place! So, I called Delilah (at the last minute) and she baked us a cake to decorate! We decided to do the China flag because we had eaten dinner the night before with some missionaries from China...plus it's a very easy flag.

Well, we had the BEST time with Delilah. I was concerned Delilah was going to do the whole thing and just hold Noah or Anna's hand while "they" were decorating. But she reassured me she was going to let them do it. I would scream..."NOAH, you are pulling up the cake" when he was icing it and "Please don't lick the spoons and icing, GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF THE BOWL!" There definitely should have been a sign on the cake...EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!



See what I mean!!

Is that good Anna!! We caught you!!













Turned out that several more people joined the competetion and we didn't place...or we told them they placed 4th! They were up against 12 year olds! Here are the real winners!
