last night was the talent show for the university of tennessee at chattanooga’s honors program, which my brothers are in. they performed two songs that randy wrote, so joe and i made the trek. and, my sister was in town, so joe finally was able to meet her, her husband and their three kids.
the talent show was an ecclectic mix. the boys performed songs with piano, drums and guitar and there were several other guitar pieces amongst the broadway song, the french opera piece and the classical piano.
then, came the cake icing. yes, you read correctly. one girl showed off her talent, which was icing a cake. joe and i thought the “icing the cake” in the program was some sort of song. hehe. she wheeled out her table with one already iced cake and one not iced, which she used to show us how to put on two layers of icing (so there are no crumbs, of course) and how to fold the icing over the top. then she used the already iced cake to show us how to make the border and the flowers.
then, it was back to the musical stylings of the other students. what an interesting mix of talents.
