Even with the threat of rain today we still have a great turn out for our county fair livestock auction. All of us parents are so happy to see the support for our county youth! Great to also see Sen. Howard Marklein make it down to show his support. Another large thank you to all of the auctioneers for volunteering their time today.
This is my little sis from Big Brothers / Big Sisters. She hopes to one day be a baker/pastry chef. For her 17th birthday, I asked what she wanted to do? Amanda found a recipe for a cake she wanted to make that looked WAY more difficult than I thought we could accomplish. But this wonderful young lady met the challenge! This cake took 5 HOURS to make, with Italian buttercream, American buttercream, ganache, sprinkles, an Ariana Grande tie-in... and a 3-layer Funfetti cake! This is what Amanda wanted to do for her birthday — a challenge that she could meet. So proud of her! (Amanda and I have been “matched” for 4+ years.)
