Fall Festival

The week leading up to Halloween was a crazy, busy one for sure. My kids' school was having their first Fall Festival. I volunteered myself to help out set up some gift baskets for our silent auction. Also, we hosted a cake walk and off course I had to donate some cakes :). My kids' classrooms are called Strawberry and Apple. So in honor of their classroom's names I decided to bake two cakes with those two flavors. The strawberry cake I was already familiar with it (see here). For the apple cake I used a recipe I found in the Betty Crocker Fall Baking Magazine. On a site note, I bought the magazine because they were featuring Bakerella but I'm glad I did since it came in handy!
First in the ingredients list: Butter! And lots of it :)
 And Applesauce for the Apple flavor...

 And mixing...
 And the final product which was won by one of my daughter's classmates!
And now for the strawberry cake. I run out of time so I had to improvise on my cake design but I was still very happy with the results...

I had a great time working on these two cakes. Went to bed a couple of times at 2 am but it was worthy because I was doing what I love!
