PKU Event

Jenna and Lisa at PKU event

Lisa and I had the wonderful opportuntity to work at an event designed to help those who have PKU (Phenylketonuria) enjoy foods that have little or no protein. Together we ran the cupcake decorating booth. We showed children and adults different techniques on how to decorate cupcakes. The night was so enjoyable and I am so blessed to have been a part of this event! Here are some pictures from the event.
