I play Bunco once a month with 12-16 girls. There are several reasons I enjoy this evening:
1. There is a monthly theme and we’re supposed to bring a $5 “prize” in line with that theme. I love the personal challenge to get as much for my $5 as possible and to be creative in the process.
2. Two of my best friends in town are always there and I love being with them.
3. There is adult interaction and LOTS of laughter.
4. We all bring something to nibble – it’s an opportunity to bake.
We played this weekend and I took the Cupcake Bites I had seen on the blog Bakerella and had been wanting to try. You start by baking a cake (mine was maybe the prettiest cake I have ever baked) and then you crumble that sucker up:
After mixing a bunch and melting chocolate a bunch and dipping a bunch I got this:
Despite the fact that many women commented on Bakerella that it was a lot of work to make these, I thought they were pretty simple and fun. Big bang for minimal effort (if your kids are napping).
