Birthday Weekend--Day 1

The Prince turns 5 on Sunday, but at our house a birthday isn't just ONE day. Today he took cupcakes to his class. Um, I remembered that we needed cupcakes sometime last night after they went to bed. So, I scrounged in the pantry and found a chocolate cake mix (which happens to be his favorite flavor). While they baked, I got online and found a buttercreme frosting recipe and added blue food coloring (his favorite color). Pipe on the frosting, add some chocolate sprinkles, and send in a decorated box. TADA!! Who needs store bought cupcakes? (Besides, his "cake" for his party tomorrow is a store bought cupcake cake.) Posts of day 2 and 3 will be coming!

Those look so great!

Here in Missouri(our district), the kids can't bring stuff like that. I remember my mom baking a cake at least once a month for our fifth grade class. Our teacher was awesome!

I wish we had those kind of teachers here.
