Teacher's Day Gift

From blogs and Facebook, I knew that Teacher's Day was coming.
I waited for Elyssa to say something  -  Nothing.
I probed her a bit  - Nothing conclusive. (she kept talking about Mother's Day instead)
I checked and rechecked her kindy message file  -  Nothing.

In the end, I decided to just call up her school.  When I asked when will they be celebrating Teacher's Day, I was told it was over already.  Oops! 
The school administrator said they just did simple activities with the kids. No big event as they don't want the situation whereby kids PESTER their parents to bring presents for their teachers. Hmmm...... good logic also. 

But since I was already prepared to do something, I went ahead with a simple gift for her 2 class teachers.


 Butter Cake
I originally wanted to make decorated cupcakes but it was a busy and tiring weekend so I baked a "simple but oh so buttery" butter cake instead.  Put into a clear box (bought earlier from a baking supplies shop), tie up with pink ribbon and done!


I also wrote out the names of her 2 teachers and asked Elyssa to colour them. She drew some flowers and wrote her name on the inside of the card.
See the letter H?  Elyssa likes to do multi-colours. She happily told me "See, I blend the colours together. Nice or not?"

Elyssa was so excited to bring the cakes to school the next day.  Hope her teachers enjoyed the cake  :)
