Mike and I had planned on making some chocolate fudge to send to the banquet this weekend, since it went over so well last round of banquets. Well, Mike had the idea to put it in the football cake pan that we had, which we'd used to make a rice krispy treat football back when the Colts won the Superbowl.
Well, I was a little apprehensive about it, thinking just doing a pan would make more sense- to cut it and serving and so forth, but we ran with it and I went ahead and made the chocolate fudge- 4lbs of it yesterday afternoon and put it in the half football mold and put it in the fridge to harden overnight.
We were trying to decide when to take it in and Mike went and worked breakfast this morning. And after working breakfast, he helped with setting stuff up for lunch and lo and behold, it was a football theme!!!!
So after going to walmart, locking himself out of the van with a shopping cart full of groceries ;) , getting a ride home to pick up my key to the van and putting groceries away, we used the white cookie icing we have and decorated up the football and put it on a some cardboard that we wrapped with part of a green plastic tablecloth. And Mike took it back up to the church. :)
We had no idea of thier theme, but it worked perfectly! Guess God was telling Mike he definately was taking it back up to the church this morning, though he wasn't too thrilled on the idea. LOL!
