2nd Meeting

I had such a great time at this second meet. It was long overdue. During the 1st meeting I had decided I would make these stuffed cupcakes that I found a recipe for like 6 months ago. Unfortunately I didn’t make those. We had to change the day from Saturday night to Friday night and I had no energy to make the cupcakes. So instead I took the easy way out and made this peach streusal cinnamon cake. Sandra Lee has nothing on my semi-homemade cooking.

I started off using a larger baking pan to make this in, but ended up using a small pan, which resulted in this:

We all had a good laugh and now we know that a small pan like that cannot hold two boxes of cake and peaches.

You live and learn.
