A Golden Goodbye

Friday was the closing performance of Golden Boy of the Blue Ridge at Cumberland County Playhouse. Hands down, this show has been my favorite production at CCP this season. With only a couple of shows I haven't seen, I'm guessing that it will probably hold out as my most memorable of this year.

I took my mother to see the show for the first time and it was a wonderful chance to spend some time with her.

I also took some sweet treats to the cast & crew. I occasionally get inspired to make cakes or cupcakes themed to a show that I love and this was one of those times. I tried to go with things that reminded me of the show and the set itself.

Banjos from the show poster, a mirror that Clayton admires himself in, moonshine jars from JM's still, and the shovel that started it all. Fall leaves inspired by those from the set decorated the rest of the cupcakes. I hope the cast & crew enjoyed them.

Making these has also put me in the mood to make more show themed sweet treats. Would my few readers be interested in seeing some more of my baked goods? All show themed, of course.
