Queen of Cupcakes

Gracie is taking a class about decorating cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. She made these hamburger cupcakes today and they were wonderful! The meat is a chocolate cupcake and she used yellow and red icing for cheese and tomatoes, the lettuce is green coconut. They looked so nice and having the icing on the inside made them easier, and neater to eat!
This is a clown cupcake cake she made. She is getting very good at using different decorator tips. She's a pro. Anyone want to place an order? The whole family looks forward to Monday nights because we know she will have a special dessert for us!
All the kids are kind of interested in cooking lately, so I have decided that each child should have a special meal that they can prepare on their own for the family. Gracie's current best meal is Cowboy Stew. Daniel can make grill cheese, his favorite food, and Tuesday night Ally will try her hand at making her favorite meal -chicken and dumplings. We found the recipe the Cracker Barrel uses, so we will see how that turns out!
