Party Number 1


Well my eldest son, Ethan, turns 5 this Saturday and this year it seems as though I'm going to be on a cooking marathon weekend.
Tomorrow marks his first clebration with 30 cupcakes going to school tomorrow - one for each child in his class and also one for each teacher.

The request this year from my 'almost 5 year old' was - SCARY CUPCAKES !!!
Yes, that's right ... SCARY CUPCAKES.

This is from one little boy who asks that we keep the light on at night.
So, today I slaved away and made them. After decorating 26 of them and almost finishing, he mentioned to me that he didn't want a scary one or one with lollies on it - huh !!!!

You will see in the photo one lonely 'non scary cupcake' with a BIG E and a LITTLE e on it - this is what my 'almost 5 year old' son wanted for himself.

Now, I'm a little concerned that I may be branded as the irresponsible mother who scared all the little prep kids with her scary cupcakes. I'm concerned also that these may be the first cupcakes that never actually get eaten in the history of cupcakes and I'm concerned that I'll have little 5 year olds who begin crying any time I enter the classroom from here on in.

Oh well .... I'll keep you posted on the BIG DAY tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by!

we aren't allowed to make cupcakes...only buy them for school birthdays...a complete blessing for me since i am not a good baker.
