Circle Of Friends

Pin It!

Remember how I mentioned I was going to a party on Tuesday and I’d write more about it later? Welcome to later!

The party was for a group, called Circle of Friends, that pairs children with special needs with a buddy and plans fun events. This past Tuesday’s event was a karaoke and dance party. Since I didn’t ask permission to post most of the kids’ pictures, you don’t get to see the huge smiles on their faces… but believe me, everyone had a terrific time.

I didn’t show up empty-handed. (Do I ever go to a party empty-handed?) The yellow sheet cake I baked and decorated was gone almost before I set it down on the table!

Here’s a pic of me, with my favorite friend 🙂

    love the blog, keep ‘em coming! if you’re ever not in the mood to cook, i found a cool company that you should look up…vegin’ out, they’re called. They deliver a week of vegan meals…I know they deliver out her in California, I’m not sure about anywhere else, but I thought you might wanna check them out… have a good one!

    That sounds like such a great way to spend a Tuesday evening! Karaoke+kids+cake=great party. Anyway, I was wondering what recipe you use for your frosting–not only is it strikingly blue, but it looks like the perfect consistency for decorating! You are such a pro!

  3. Romina says:

    Aww that cake is so cute!

  4. Billy says:

    That’s really cool that you volunteer there.

    The cake looks great!

  5. ChocolateCoveredVegan says:

    Thanks Brian, I’ll check it out.

  6. Ruby Red Vegan says:

    That cake is AMAZING! I dare say it is your best decorating feat yet…

    And please tell me that you sang your heart out at karaoke!

  7. Ruby Red Vegan says:

    P.S. I like the part where you wrote, “Welcome to later!”

  8. Jenny says:

    You decorate the cutest cakes!! I am sure it was much appreciated.

    Awww… I work with special needs kids and believe me; you will get SO MUCH out of your friendship with them, they are indeed VERY VERY special treasures.

    Oh, my gosh. You are so cute.

  11. Kumquat Peekapoo says:

    Wow, what fun! It that glitter icing on the globe?!

  12. freepersonaltrainer says:

    That cake is so cute! I can’t frost for anything, let alone draw people on it.

    Thats an admirable thing you do. Im sure you mean a lot to those kids.

  13. Ricki says:

    What a wonderful way to spend your morning. I’m sure it makes a huge difference to them. And your cake is absolutely adorable!

  14. Rach-ums says:

    I bet the kids just love you! It sounds like an awesome organization.

  15. amy says:

    wow…you have a super lovely smile! and, what a sweet cake! i have to say, i am really jealous that you decided to be vegan at such a young age, i wish i’d been that aware when i was 14. you rock.

  16. kindkitchen says:

    Oh, you are SO awesome. I love people with bug hearts <3

  17. kindkitchen says:

    oh my goodness. “bug”=big hehe

  18. Leng says:

    That is so sweet of you to bake for them. I LOVE the groups name, “circle of friends.”

    That’s great that you’re getting involved with special needs kids. They tend to be neglected by many.
    Kids in general need good role models and someone OUTSIDE of their normal lives to mingle with.

    They must have been really happy and appreciative. I sort of already am. LOL.

    weirdo—>me 😀

    You are so adorable! You just seem like such a kind person and that cake is great! Also, it’s nice to see someone my age who looks really young – I’m 22 and I’m always mistaken for a 16 year old!! Do you ever get that?

  20. Emma says:

    That is such a nicely decorated cale- no wonder it got eaten so quickly! I bet it was just as tasty as it is pretty!
