Danika started preschool this year and I can’t believe she is already 4 years old and riding the bust to school 2 full days a week! Where does time go? It seems just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital! To celebrate her starting preschool we decided to have our own little party with mandarin orange cake with pineapple Cool Whip frosting! It’s an everyday occasion worth celebrating! I headed to Walmart with the kids to see if I could find the new Cool Whip frosting! We found it right next to the Cool Whip in the frozen dessert section.
They had chocolate and vanilla flavors. We chose the vanilla for our mandarin orange cake.
The kids had fun getting buried in the shopping cart! You can see our entire shopping trip including Aiden’s haircut at Cost Cutters in my Google+ album!
Then we went home to make our cake! I made it that night so we could have it for breakfast the next day.
I set the Cool Whip Frosting on the counter for an hour before I used it.
Once my cake cooled I mixed crushed pineapple with the Cool Whip Frosting and frosted my cake.
It turned out amazing! It was soooo good!
The kids were VERY excited to get to eat cake for breakfast! That never happens around here so it was a real treat! Danika attending preschool is an occasion worth celebrating and worthy of a special treat!
Aiden thought he was pretty lucky to get cake too!
I’m not sure what got fed more cake, Carson or his highchair? He enjoyed smearing it everywhere!
