A sweet Thanksgiving

By Tiffany Young


About a week ago I stopped eating bread, leading up to Thanksgiving. Everyone kept asking, “But why are you giving up bread?” You’ll see from the pictures below why it is necessary to cut back before visiting my parents for Thanksgiving.

My mom and I were a little bored after a few days of sitting on the couch, so we decided to frost a cake. After all, you can only watch so much TV in a long weekend (my brother would disagree, however). We took a break from watching “Breaking Bad” and made some butter cream frosting. The pictures and video below are the results of our hard work. The video has my mom saying we’re finished in 20 minutes, but really that was just to get a rise out of my  brother since we had said we’d only be 20 minutes and he watched at least one-and-a-half Star Trek shows during the time it took us to complete the cake.

Let me know if you have any questions about how to frost a cake and I’ll get my mom to share some tips!

Happy Thanksgiving!
