On Friday my troop came to my home for our big bridging from Brownies to Juniors ceremony (also known as a “Flying Up” ceremony). As I posted last month, my co-leader and I made our “bridge” . It was a slightly windy day, so I had to readjust the pots in the ground right before we started.

My twins and I made a bridging cake for the after party.
The cake was made from scratch, but I got called in to sub at the last minute and did not have time to make frosting and decorate the cake the way I had imagined. Dunkin Hines chocolate and vanilla frosting, along with green food coloring, had to do.
I found rainbow clip art, enlarged it and made this sign as a cake topper. I used a measuring spoon taped to the back as a mount.

I guess if you have the time or desire, you can make a half chocolate, half green cake and use the appropriate icing. Even though it was not as “pretty” as I had wanted it to be, it was devoured by all (I had thirty parents, siblings, and even a grandma at my home!)
For our party after the ceremony, I sent an email for easy snacks to bring. My moms brought:
Chips and dip
Cookies and brownie tray
Water (pony size)
It was a memorable day for everyone! I am looking forward to a few restful months before we begin again in October.
