For the Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet this year the boys had to make and decorate a cake. I didn't think Monkey Boy would be too enthused with this particular activity, but he surprised me with a wonderful idea and a well thought out plan for his special cake. I also thought I'd be abandoned to work on the project myself ten minutes in (as is usually the case) but the only thing I had to do was supervise the oven. He wasn't too happy about me taking pictures of him (as you can see), but he did all the work and I couldn't be more proud of his creativity and determination. He even got first place!
