KIDS KORNER WELCOMES ANGELO

ANGELO . . . BUT WE CALL HIM JELLO

Even though he didn't claim it, Godzilla has been Jello's 
obsession for years and years and years. 

There's so many Godzillas - from tall to small - lined up in 
his room. So of course Jello sent me a Godzilla drawing 
for Kids Korner. 

What a challenge!

Such a good day. . . the sun is shining, the sky is blue
and I met Chef Oliver! Or should I say Baker? 
Unsure of the proper title, but still was such a thrill. 

He is the master of baked artistry at Heaven Sent Desserts.
Every day there is a limited selection of cupcakes, yet each
and every one is astounding. Even has a Guiness beer
cupcake, which was a heavenly delight.
Please click on their name to learn more.

I have used many of Chef Oliver's creations for Kids Korner props.
Zoe's Bling . . . of Color -pictured above- is a raspberry treat.

I am deeply indebted to your wizardly Chef Oliver.
Thank you!
(And so is my husband, for he eats my props.)

Thankfully my little soldiers were lined up or would have frosting in my eyes.

But, still caught with my mouth open :)
