This news called for celebration!
Of course a celebration calls for food.
I made my French Toast Cupcakes with Maple Frosting and Bacon Sprinkles (perhaps I should shorten that name).
I also made Rice Krispies Treats that looked like watermelon slices. I got the idea from InspiredByFamilyMag.com. The inspiration recipe used chocolate chips for the watermelon "seeds," but two of my kids don't love chocolate (weirdos). So I found some old Valentine's sprinkles that had tiny brown hearts. I used those dark brown hearts as our seeds.

|I cut it into quarters.|
|Then I cut each quarter into three or four slices. Those tips wanted to crumble when I cut them.|
She was quite pleased with the fact that she was wearing her watermelon dress while we were making a watermelon dessert.
This was another time of getting to bake for fun. Plus I got to make something new! I like to celebrate big things--like a good medical diagnosis--and little things--like fun in the kitchen!
