Not one of my better ideas......................

Recently when I was shopping I ran across this wonderful BRIGHT RED frosting.  Little sprinkles of Christmas balls in red, pink, greens and white were enclosed in the top.   How could I resist?  It just plain looked fun.  I raved about it to Cathy and when they came down last Sunday she brought a lovely little white (from scratch) cake and she put the frosting and sprinkles on.  It was beautiful and so Christmassy.   Her cake was great but the frosting was so sweet!  I don't know if anyone finished theirs. 
We cleaned up and it looked like someone had been murdered in the kitchen.  Although it was three grownups and one little girl, there was red spattered everywhere - on the faucets, in the sink, on the kitchen counter.  Not one of my better ideas but at least we had fun laughing about it.  I guess it served it's purpose - it was fun. Cathy said "Next time we'll just do white frosting with sprinkles.  It would be so pretty and Christmassy!

Glad you could laugh about this. Sometimes these are the moments we remember the longest. Happy New Year.

Ha! Well, good you had a laugh. A shame since the cake was homemade. Better to make your own frosting. Those ready made ones are filled with so much junk and red food coloring should be banned from all products. Happy holidays! Tammy

Like you said, it made for a funny moment which I am sure you all needed this year. I love how those things happen and make it all the more special. :) Kit
