This past Saturday was Oscar’s 2nd annual basketball tournament. The Lintag family has done such an amazing job organizing this annual tournament to commemorate Oscar’s life.
Even Malcolm (the little doggie) got in on the family picture! Cute!
Now for the goodies! Here’s another picture of the basketball sugar cookies that I made for the tourney:
And cupcakes! I made yummy cupcakes!
Quick little story: I was on stage playing with some of the kids (lol I’m still 5 at heart ok?) and I heard one of the players commenting on how he had one of the most amazing cupcakes he’s ever had then began to describe the nutella one…. I shyly blushed under my hair and ran to tell Sean’s mom all about it. She was just as excited as I was and told me that some of the players even asked if the cupcakes were made by the same person from last year…. baking ego boost!
This one is a vanilla cupcake with nutella frosting:
