Now my mother had two crying children on her hands. Mom was NOT a baker. In fact, she pretty much hated the kitchen. Like me, she was good at it, just didn't like it. On this particular day her baking skills kicked in, or rather her ability to make do kicked in. She had a plain white angel food cake mix in the cupboard so she mixed that up. Next she took the candy sprinkles we only used at Christmas and dumped some of those into the batter. I was sure I wasn't going to have my confetti cake, but low and behold it worked! This time when the cake came out of the oven and was flipped to cool, there was a perfect white cake with colored confetti speckles through out. Mom was a hero!
I guess it's that story that made me get all excited when I saw that my cookie cutter supplier also sells edible sugars, jimmies and fun shaped confetti. All I needed was to see the dozens of pretty pictures and I was hooked. So, this week 4 cartons of wonderfully colored sugar, jimmies, pearls and confetti showed up at my door. Now I can share them with you. Take a look and see what you can find that will make you a hero with your kids!
