FHE Treat

Family Home Evening treats always start out with a bang, when I set the goal to do them, then my family doesn't see them for another 3 months or so. My son and I made cupcakes Monday morning. I got an old mini bundt cake pan from my mom's kitchen a while back, and had never used it, so I started out with that.Then I added cool whip dalop things on top. For high class fanciness.
Close up, oh ahh delicious. They would have looked fancier with ganache poured on top, then cool whip, but my family is not so much a ganache family.
We are a fan of chocolate cake and cool whip in my family. Recently cool whip started packaging its product so you get all the great taste of cool whip, with the fun of whipped topping can.
This is how they started all beautiful. But me and my family agreed that isn't nearly enough cool whip for chocolate cake. So we had to add more, lots more.
And this is the reason my husband likes me, the mass of amount of long skinny limbs that flail everywhere. Let it never be said I only posted attractive pictures of myself on my blog.Mmm, lots of cool whip. My son had already had plain cupcakes after they came out of the oven, so in the evening he assumed he just needed cool whip added to his cupcake about 8 times.
I decided this is what Family Home Evening desert is all about. All three of us had a blast decorating the mini bundt cakes with cool whip. I think my son just had fun laughing at his parents.
Mmm, they were so good only had about 7. Luckily they were about half the size of a cupcake. But that doesn't include the 5 I ate earlier without cool whip. I have a problem, if I keep my cupcakes topingless then I think of them as muffins then they must be good for me to eat.Ahh, desert. I often find it surprising that my son likes family home evening. But tonight it was fun. I guess that is surprising because the only memories I have of it, are complaining at as teenager.

P.S. Happy unconstitutional federally mandated holiday to celebrate the adoption of the United States of America's Constitution today, back in 1787.


  1. yum! We had an apple thingy. The kids peeled and sliced 26 wormy apples all afternoon for this yummy dessert. Then we ate all of Kami's vanilla ice cream! I wish I had some right now but it was GONE!
    I do want chocolate! I wonder what I can make...

  2. jeez, if my family's FHE had been like this in high school, I might have actually liked it to. Instead we had boring, boring lessons...
