A few Saturdays ago my friend, Willow, Princess Polliwog and I attended an event at our library. It was called Cupcake Wars. Each person had to simple decorate a cupcake any way they liked and then three people who worked at the library judged all the cupcakes. It was really fun!
Here is a picture of us all with our cupcakes.
Willow's cupcake. Isn't that little kitty cute?
Here is a picture of my cupcake that I took after the contest. I made it entirely out of fondant.

Here are all the cupcakes waiting to be judged.
Finally it was time to have our cupcakes judged. The lady helping with the event announced that there was four awards. The award for Most Imaginative went to a girl who made a unicorn head on her cupcake. The award for Most Detailed went to someone who made a grassy field with lots of flowers. The award for most creative went to… Willow! Her cat was soooo adorable! And then the prize for Most Professional went to… Me! It was fun to have Willow come with us and we all really enjoyed ourselves.
The next day I realized that Princess Polliwog really deserved a prize. So I tried to sneak around without her seeing me while I put a little something special together.
I gave her a porcelain doll that I used to love. Well, actually it was Lolly's first. She bought her when she was 12 and I was 6. I had adored the doll so
much! Sometimes when Lolly went out of the room I would sneak in and hold the doll. When was about 10 Lolly was de-cluttering and came across the doll. She didn't want her anymore so she passed her down to me. I should have been thrilled right? Nope. I didn't really like the doll very much anymore.
Now I'm 13 and Princess Polliwog is 7. And of course now Princess Polliwog loves the doll just as much as I had. So I decided it would be the perfect little prize.
The Princess was thrilled with her gift! The doll has finally received a name! It is Lizzy. Isn't that cute?
Sorry we haven't posted something in so long! Lolly has been really busy with college and she is working two jobs. And I have been kind of busy too. Thanks to all of you who look at our blog!
