Golf 'N Stuff






When I was a kid I was OBSESSED with the movie The Karate Kid. Loved it, loved it. My dad dubbed it for me on VHS and I remember watching it over and over... I knew every line. Yep!! When I graduated from grade 7, my treat was going to see The Karate Kid Part II at Oakridge Mall with my mom and grandpa. You know when Daniel and Mr.Miyagi go to Okinawa? That's the one. And Daniel meets a hot Japanese lady and falls in love, but must battle her suitor to the death! I bought the collector's magazine from the movie. I guess I had a little crush on old Ralph Macchio, heh heh. In the first Karate Kid movie, "Golf N Stuff" is the teen amusement center that Daniel and Ali go to on their magical date... I really thought high school was going to be like that. Lester's Family Fun Center on Kingsway in Burnaby, B.C. didn't quite cut it.

ANYHOO... I made 150 golf themed cupcakes, each in their own cute little cupcake box, for a charity golf tournament that my very hardworking mom organized through her golf club! So far they have raised over $11,000 for a local neighborhood house here in Vancouver. Pretty cool. My sis Leanne made the cute tags. These crazy cupcakes drove me to the brink of insanity but of course it was well worth it because they turned out really cute! I even cut out and glued each little flag out of Origami paper, (though Rich helped me with a few!) while watching a rather sad movie: I've Loved You So Long. Man, Kristin Scott Thomas is a wonderful actress.

A terrible thing happened while I was trying to document the "making of" 150 golf themed cupcakes. My camera strap got stuck to a chair while I went to grab it, and the camera tumbled out of my hands onto our hardwood floor. So, I really really hope my camera can be fixed!!!
