Cupcakes in Kindergarten

Here is Sierra opening a birthday gift before school on Monday morning. Kaia likes to be the center of attention these days.
Sierra talked me into taking cupcakes into her class. I cleared it with her teacher and Kaia and I worked on them while Sie was in school. I thought cool whip frosting would be a good idea. The online recipe told me to add a cup of milk. This turned my frosting into soup. I tried to salvage it by adding more powdered sugar. Didn't work. Pretty soon I just dumped my whole container of sugar in there. Still didn't work. But the kids ate 'em and didn't complain. The only trouble was talking with Sierra's teacher, Mrs. Muller. When we arrived, the class was out at recess so we had about 10 minutes to chat with Mrs. Muller. I told her about my frosting disaster and she told me she was a very good cook and that she didn't use recipes. She said there are two kinds of cooks, ones who do use recipes and ones who don't. Needless to say I felt like an idiot and left feeling like I've never cooked anything right in my life.

Wow! She was kinda harsh eh? Even if that is true I don't think I would say it to someone! And I am a recipe user and think I am a pretty ok cook

Doesn't she know the "If you can't say something nice don't say it at all" rule? Shouldn't she should be teaching stuff like that in her kindergarten class?

Don't let her bully you. You could have said that those who can't do, Teach, but that would be mean and we don't want you to come down to her level. Love you

Happy Birthday to Sierra.

Don't worry about the mean teacher. I CANNOT cook without using a recipe and I am okay with that.

Happy birthday Sie!! Sorry I didn't call you back about the whole teacher/frosting story! Poor you...
You're a GREAT cook, Mind! You know what tastes good and that's all that matters. (:

You know how I feel your (cup)cake decorating pain, sister. :) I bet the kids didn't even look twice at them before eating! And don't worry about how that insensitive teacher made you feel. I consider myself a pretty good cook, and I use recipes all the time. (Especially for baking!)
