Skyrim Sweet Rolls

I finally found a mini-bundt cake pan!! I only traversed 1,975+ miles, and to three different Walmarts to find this.. :D  I saw it at a Walmart I like to go to here, but didn't get it.. I mentioned it to my husband though. Yesterday he stayed home from work since it was raining. And we had a "date" (went to Walmart. Lol).  (We went to Dunkin' Donuts, too...)  He went to the Walmart that I don't like to go to. (It's toooo busy there.)  They had a mini bundt cake pan (it wasn't this kind.) But then we went to the Walmart that we should have gone to in the first place, and they had this one. I got it (I'm going to have to return that other one-- Or maybe let my husband do it since I hate going to that Walmart, lol...)  This one has the part in the middle that goes all the way up. The other one was just a little bit in the middle. (I know, how anal can I get?...)  But, I have to do Skyrim Sweet Rolls right! 

5 Baby Dragon Eggs

(No real dragons were harmed in making these sweet rolls...)
(They're just chicken eggs. Lol)

Getting ready to put them in the oven...

Ta-da...   :D  

I used this recipe for Skyrim Sweet Rolls. Her icing looks so much better. :(    But...

I think Eon really liked them! :)  He has been having a hard time adjusting to his new school. They had two weeks off for Fall Break (they go nine weeks on, two weeks off for school here). Monday was their first day back. They have a long day. Their bus comes at 6:20 in the morning (supposed to get here at 6:15, but..); and they don't get dropped off til 4:30 in the afternoon. It's a long day, and Eon has had (SOOOO much!! Grr!!) homework every night..  (I just want to scream about the homework!!)  Anyway, he has been having a hard time. So, I wanted to do something that would cheer him up.  I got him a pair of gloves (Halloween gloves, with "hand bones" on them) to try and cheer him up, on Monday (he needed gloves, so). I said "I got you something today." He said "Is it food?"   I guess I know what to get him (or, make him) from now on-- food... Lol     He actually did really good last night. (And, he had more homework last night than he did Monday night!). Maybe just that first day back was a hard one for him... (Plus, adjusting to a new school is hard..)   Besides his homework, he has a Civil War Project he has to work on. I don't know HOW he is going to finish it, he comes home, we eat dinner, he does homework forever...  When is he supposed to have down time?  I guess our weekend is going to be shot, doing this *&%@@#!!! project..    :(    If he doesn't have too much homework through the week, I told him he can work on his project, too.  

BTW, I think Eli liked them too. Even though he wouldn't even crack a smile. (I could tell he was forcing himself to NOT smile, though..) ;)

That mini bundt pan is cool! And your skyrim rolls look so tempting!
I know how hectic school and homework can get, for both kids and moms :p But you'll surely manage, Tina...that's the part of history I'm so glad I'm over with now ;)

Thanks Mimi. The skyrim sweetrolls pretty much just tasted like cupcakes. (I was tempted, and had to try one.) :P
