When my son says “Oh Mom, we need to go shopping” it’s a sign that a long night is ahead. After I was presented with his mock up for his edible cell — involving cake, jello, and other various candies — I basically freaked.
Sadly, it’s true. I completely lost it. The whole way home, my mind entertained thoughts of how much easier the homework load was in our old public school.
When I finally came up for air, I found out that the cell did not need to be completed tonight. I just had to furnish the ingredients. Even better, the expected size of the cake was not as I had feared.
So we bought a ready-made angel food cake, ready-made jello cups, frosting, and some candy. I also picked up a can of whipped cream and a basket of fresh strawberries.
At home, I cut the bottom off of the cake to send to school with the rest of the supplies. To the remainder of the cake, we added the strawberries and whipped cream.
