Art Class - What is it?

The other day I had some spare cake and some leftover frosting, which happens in this house more often than I care to admit.  And since we never let spare cake go to waste(that's considered a crime in these parts) I decided to make a little art project for my kids.  What's better than an art project that you can eat, I'd like to know!

Here is the spare cake in question.  It was a rectangular shape and frosted with an off-white/ivory frosting.  My two boys were each given one long side and one short side to decorate, essentially dividing it diagonally.  They had frosting in brown, light brown, and black to decorate with.  So, what is it?  I was amazed with how quickly each of them decided on their answer!  And because I'm their mother I will also brag on how creative their solutions were!

Fiddler on the Roof

A few days ago my husband sat down to check email on our computer only to find that our 7+ year old computer had quietly slipped away earlier in the day. It lasted longer than I ever thought it would. While we search for a replacement I have learned how to do all kinds of things on my phone, including posting on the blog.

I made this cake for a local high school drama production of, you guessed it, Fiddler on the Roof.
