This exercise was delivered by the super human being known as "Mum" and involved forcing the arguing Teenage species to come together and try to get along. To be fair the Female Teen has been off school for 7 weeks already due to GSCE's finishing and the Male Almost Teen is hot, bothered and not winning at his new Xbox game........
Tensions are running high as the competitors take their places behind the table, Mum signals that should any chocolate frosting get on her new carpet they will both be disqualified and all cakes with be consumed by her. They are on starters orders and.......Their off......................Male Tween grabs at frosting bag forcing Female Teen to put her elbow in her cake, this results in the first of many scuffles as Mum holds up the first yellow card up of the day.
With harmony resumed they begin again this time with a piping bag each and 5ft of table between them. Female Teen is taking this all very seriously and decorates with precision causing Mum to comment on how lovely her cakes look.....Unfortunately this results in Male tween slamming his frosting bag down and accusing her of favouritism. Mum steps in again to
After 55 minutes patience and concentration are at an all time low and Mum calls time on the activity due to both kids wanting to shove each others faces into frosting and Mum wanting to have a Gin & Tonic (purely medicinal). Both have made a good attempt at decorating cakes if only they could just get along for the duration of the activity.
In true Teen style they disappear and all clearing up is left to the super human being without a cape known as Mum. She takes this opportunity to lick every spoon, knife and frosting bag clean of any evidence and then eat her entire body weight in cupcakes until she feels sick.............................
|Here are some I made earlier.........................There are none left now.|

Sometimes teens need a little structure to their "we think we know it all" day too. Cupcakes look yum! #PcCoLoReplyDelete
