Over the last couple of days, I have been on a baking frenzy. I'm not much of a cook but I have a couple things that I can make pretty well. Some of these include chocolate chip cookies, any kind of cobbler( peach, apple, blackberry etc.), chocolate cupcakes, and pear and apple tarts. So Yesterday, after all my jobs were finished, I started making an apple tart with the "help" of Philip O'connor. After we had finished peeling and cutting the apples ( I cut them, Phil helped with the peeling) I realized I had two bags of frozen apples in the freezer. (These were leftovers from the last two times I made an apple tart and used to many apples and then forgot that I had extras from the time before) My mom suggested making apple crisp since Joe and Grace were coming for dinner. Once I had washed the measuring cups and mixing bowl, I refueled and began making a crisp. After both my desserts were baked I set them on the counter to cool. I was thrilled with the way my tart turned out and ran outside to our garden to garnish it with a bit of mint. The sun was shining through our kitchen windows and it looked like a good place to take a picture of my creation. The sun light makes all the difference on the picture, rather than dim yellow light hovering over such a dazzling dessert.
This afternoon I wanted to do something fun with Crystal since Ruby had been invited to play with friends. We decided to make cupcakes. I made the batter, and baked them while crystal licked the spatula and tested the cooked cupckakes. After they cooled,we frosted them with baby blue and light yellow frosting and then bedazzled them with some colorful sprinkles. Emma came over while we were frosting them and asked for a cupcake with blue frosting. After she licked off all the frosting she loudly announced that she would like another one. We just put some more blue frosting on top and she was very satisfied. This concludes this weeks baking marathon for now, you never know I might end up making something tomorrow. I doubt it though.I posted some pictures of the cakes my mom made for Pauls Birthday.

For dessert everyone wanted a little tart and a little crisp.
