I just got my Penzeys Catalog and was reading the recipes. I came across this one and had to search back and see if it was the same one you talked about. I will have to try it.

Okay, here is my week long project! I help out every year coordinating daily snacks for our Kid's Day Camp at our church. Three days it is cookies (we are usually short and this year, even though we had 120 - 150 kids per day we had enough homemade and store bought cookies for another two weeks. Wednesday is always freezie day with a snack bag of some kind.

Friday is the "special snack" and my team and I seem to set the bar a little higher every year. I am mentoring a young teem who is very artistic and so she did all of the faces on these. I did all the baking (280 even though we only needed 200 for kids and volunteers....extras just in case and that's what my batters produced!)

The theme was "Pandamania" and the cupcakes held the theme through out.
- black papers with white polka dots
- vanilla cake with chocolate chips
- well, panda faces!
The kids loved them and so did the adults!
I can't wait for next year's theme!

Thanks, Princess! We always have a blast making the snacks. This is the first time I have brought in the cake decorating thing, but it just sort of fit!

Making them must have been Pandamonium!

Did you have dreams about being attacked by sticky bears!

They are very lucky children!

Thanks, Aunt Bea! I am the lucky one to be able to have this much fun - and have a great team who take my projects in stride even if they seem at the beginning of the week as being unattainable!
