Shooting Frogs

Not really shooting and killing, just shooting photos of the chocolate frogs we made for Carl's Harry Potter birthday party this year. If you've read any of the books, you'll know that Harry and his friends enjoy a little sweet treat here and there. One of them is a chocolate frog. These were the hit of the party as cake toppers. They were so wildly successful that the kids barely touched the homemade chocolate cake beneath, but instead focused all their attention on the slimy green stripes on the dark chocolatey frogs.

I'm posting a food shot to share with you that I didn't win the photo class contest with Penny de los Santos. While it would have been wonderful, it is probably a good thing. With the school year ending, two kid-birthdays this week, a brother-in-law graduating from dental school and the tulips in bloom in Minneapolis, who has time to flit off to Seattle? At least, however, I'll be able to check in on the live on-line class. You can too, if you register. It's free. What are you waiting for? The class starts Friday. See you there!

Chocolate frogs what a great idea!!! We just watched all of the Harry Potter movies... it too me a few years to get interested, but now I'm hooked.

So wonderful!
