I don't know that very many people knew this, but Monday, August 20 was
NATIONAL CUPCAKE DAY!!
If you know me at all, you know we had to
It was Payton's first day of First Grade, and I was babysitting little Adleigh, so when he got home from school we made cupcakes to celebrate the day!!
We used plain white cake mix and put it into about five different bowls so that the kids could add gel food coloring to make the colors they wanted.
This went pretty well actually until Payton actually put a few too many drops of different colors into his beautiful orange and it turned brown. You have never seen such a pitiful look come across a childs face. :(
Thankfully MiMi was able to save the day by reminding him that you can always make something good out of what you think is going to be a disaster....we took another bowl and turned it green and made
Now just getting the batter in the cupcake wrappers and "swirled" nearly turned into a brawl because both of the kiddos wanted to be the "swirlers" of the batter.....
We ended up with pink cupcakes, purple cupcakes, green cupcakes, and the camo!! We had three different flavors of frosting, Strawberry Shortcake, White Chocolate Raspberry, and VANILLA.
We all had a great time and boy did we ever have a good time sampling our hard work!! If you didn't get to celebrate Monday, go buy a cupcake today and just go ahead and celebrate!! You have my permission LOL :)
