Kidzworld Kitchen: Election Day

Nov 01, 2016

Just because you may be too young to cast a vote in the upcoming presidential election doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be paying attention to the politics that will help to shape your life over the next 4 years. Within the term of the next president you will probably by entering college and/or the work force and the policies of the next administration will affect you. It’s important to be informed and take an interest in who leads your country because the debt and decisions made today will belong to you tomorrow!

So while all the serious decision making is underway and a hand-wringing night commences it might be nice to ease the mood with some appetizers and a nice big piece of USA cake! Finally cap the night off with a red white and blue mocktail to celebrate the win of your favorite candidate or if that isn’t the case, make a toast to living in a free and democratic country!

 

USA Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • Red food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
  • 1 (12 oz) can white frosting

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Generously grease a 12-cup tube cake pan.
  3. Make cake batter as directed on box.
  4. Pour 1 cup of batter into a bowl and add the red food coloring, mix well.
  5. Pour another cup of the batter into a bowl and add the blue food coloring, mix well
  6. Pour the red cake mix into the bottom of the greased pan. Carefully pour the white batter over the red batter in pan. Then carefully pour the blue batter over the white batter. DO NOT MIX (Hint!) The blue batter does not need to cover the white batter completely. It looks better if it just forms a ring in the center of the white batter
  7. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Cool 5 minutes then urn pan upside down onto cooling rack
  9. Once cake is completely cooled equally divide the frosting into 3 bowls.
  10. Microwave the white frosting for a few seconds on high until it is smooth enough to drizzle over the cake. With a spoon, drizzle the white frosting back and forth around the whole ring
  11. Then microwave one of the other bowls and add a few drops of blue food coloring. Then drizzle over the cake
  12. Repeat with the red food coloring, making sure you can see the red, white and blue color
  13. Allow to dry

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

JazzyRox
so i have a crush on a kid that goes to my school, and i want to know if he likes me without asking him or telling him i like him. in my opinion i am WAYYYYY to young to date, and i don't want to start any time soon, i just want to know if he has a crush on me.  please give me some advise or something on how to tell if your crush likes you. and i know that there are loads of youtube videos about this, but i guess i want it to be directly to me, idk.  please help  ~ JazzyRox

She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do. As much as we like to be besides our good friends, we also need our alone time and personal space. Don't think that she's regretting her friendship with you because I'm sure you guys share some precious memories together. Maybe she just wants her own space for a while and making new friends is her way of finding herself. Just give her some time.

@country_girl19, I agree with Athena. She might not realize how she's making you feel and it's best to talk to her about it, if not it could get worse. If nothing changes after talking with her, then I think you should rethink things. @WatermelonCurlz, I don't really think you should hang around them that much. They don't listen to you or seem to really care about the fact that you've talked about getting different friends. I'm not saying to just cut them off all together, but I wouldn't stray from the idea of slowly distancing yourself.

How do I get them to stop?   You should probably just stop talking to them and stuff. don't sit by them at lunch and don't hang out with them at recess. they sound like they are not good friends. if it gets worse, just tell your parents if they don't already know. idk how good i am at advise. hope this helped.  ~JazzyRox
