 For the 186th birthday party of the Relief Society we met at church as families and did a fabulous service project.  We helped make "angel dolls" which are plain dolls with no hair or faces that are wearing cute little hospital gowns that sick kids in the hospital get.  They don't have hair since many of the kids receiving them don't either and they don't have faces so that the kids can draw on their own faces.  We mad a TON of them that night.  It was the greatest assembly ever!  Aaron and I helped stuff and stitch up.  Afterward there was a cupcake decorating contest...since our whole enrichment was to celebrate the birthday of the Relief Society. 
These are the cupcakes I dreamed up and created.  They turned out similar to what I was imagining.  I really wanted to add edible glitter, but didn't want to drive across town to get some, so I settled for pink and purple sprinkles instead. 

The flowers were made of fondant...which my fabulous sister in law gave me a lesson in a while ago.  I think it tastes pretty terrible (made of powdered sugar and marshmallows) but it turns out cool.  My kids LOVED how the fondant tasted...big surprise ;)
