Some might say that this is not a 4H related event; however, our members can only qualify for the youth fair if they attend 4H meetings regularly. So, here I am to tell you about our day.
Thankfully, Henry made his cheesecake on Monday night so it could set. All he would need to do is add a few finishing touches this morning. He did a great job making a White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake. Since he was being judged on Valentine's Day, he decorated the top with fresh raspberries shaped into a heart. Then he had white chocolate shavings along the sides.
Edward entered in the Peewee division so I was able to help him through his recipe. He made Blueberry Cream Puffs with fresh custard filling. He really did a great job following the steps to create his masterpiece. I did not need to help him very much other than reading the recipe. This took most of the morning because there were several steps to the process and everything had to cool before filling the puffs. We finished just in time to get everyone dressed nicely and everything out the door!
Of course then we played the hurry up and wait game! LOL...what youth contest does not give us a lesson in patience? The boys practiced what they would say to the judges. I prayed for them to do well and tried to calm down from the morning excitement.
Tonight Sean made his macaroons and we will decorate in the morning. It will be an early morning as he needs to be at there by 8:30am. I am sure he will be excited and wake up extra early!
So...to be continued tomorrow with Sean showing his Creamy Coconut Macaroons and Henry will also be entering his washer game and a photo.
