'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Vineyard Elementary Carnival

Every year Vineyard Elementary puts on a fall carnival to promote school spirit and raise money.  6th graders get to participate in a cake auction.  My 6th grader (Arielle) was beyond excited to submit a cake this year.  She decided that she just wanted to make a pretty cake and said that it had to be my chocolate with cookies and cream filling.  (everyone's favorite)  She had a lot of fun and helped with every step in the baking and decorating process.  My contribution to the carnival was 2 dozen pumpkin cupcakes with orange cream cheese frosting.  (I actually made 4 dozen but a tidy sum went to work with my husband...much to the delight of his co-workers.)

There she is! Ari with her finished cake.  It was 4 layers of chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling -frosted with chocolate swiss merengue buttercream and dark chocolate ganache.
