Wafer Cup Cakes

It was my turn to prepare the refreshments for Family Night this week. Kirsten helped me with the idea (and every other aspect). Our first go we filled the cups too full and they overflowed and collapsed the cups while baking. Our second attempt was far more successful. Cheap, simple and delicious.

Just fill ordinary ice cream wafer cups half full with ordinary cake batter. Bake. Frost. Decorate.

Kirsten basically did everything. She knows where all the stuff is and how to operate her gizmos. I tried to do it, but she wouldn’t let me.

Apple Dessert

When I was a kid my favorite dessert was Apple Dessert. The name couldn’t be less original, I know, but the dessert is wonderful. Skye helped me make it yesterday to surprise Kirsten when she got home from work. Skye turned up her nose when I got out the cheese and really grimaced when I began grating the butter.

Enjoy.
