Hello future readers,
On St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to have another party at my house, but my mom said she didn't think that would be a good idea, since my ankle was still healing up. But she did say I could invite a couple of friends over, and we could use my Easy Bake Oven. All right! So after school, I got out the stuff we would need.
I invited Shante' and Raychel over. Shante' told me she's been wanted an Easy Bake Oven for a long time, and that I was so lucky to have one. Raychel agreed.
I let Shante's mix the cake batter. And since it was St. Patrick's Day, I thought it would be fun to add some green food coloring to the cake mix. Food coloring makes some food look really far out! I went to a party once and the girl had a blue cake!
Wow! Green cake batter! Danny and Jason would probably call it slime cake! Raychel poured the batter into one of the cake pans, and put it in the oven. Shante' and I watched it bake.
I found a box of white frosting mix I forgot I had, and mixed up some vanilla frosting. When the cake came out and cooled down for a few minutes, Raychel put the frosting on.
We cut the cake into 3 (sorta) even pieces. It tasted really good, but Easy Bake Oven cakes are awfully small, and we didn't get very much. I didn't have any more mixes, (gotta start saving my allowance again!) so we were still hungry.
We had been so busy making the cake, we didn't see that my mom had put some stuff on the kitchen table.
Outta site! There was a plate of Shamrock cookies, 3 leprechaun party hats and some cups. Far out! It was party time!
Gotta love my mom. She had this surprise planned all along! She knew I only had one cake mix left and that it really wouldn't be enough for 3 people! So we put on the party hats and helped ourselves to the shamrock cookies. Then Mom filled our cups with green stuff. What was this? I took a sip. It was 7-UP soda with green food coloring in it! Haha! I guess my mom and I think alike. Food coloring does make food (and drinks) look groovy!
I hope all of you had a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Even though I didn't have a big party, my friends and I had a dynamite day!
Until next time, future readers,
