The Rookie and the Veteran

My son decided to honor his dad on Veteran’s Day with some cupcakes.

He did almost everything himself. I was merely support crew.

I didn’t take any pictures of the making of the cake cups, but I will show you the important part. THE DECORATING!

We took a jar of white frosting and divided it into thirds in two more cups. To those we added food coloring.

Then we laid out our cupcakes in our pattern and started decorating them.

At the end we took the leftover white and put it in a bag to make dots.

I think next time we’ll just skip the cups and go right to the bags for all of our frosting needs. Easier, I think.

I don’t bake much. I find it to be kind of difficult. Doing it with someone else (who may or may not be very bossy!) is nearly impossible.

That’s one thing that my Mom was very good at. Letting kids help and make messes.

So C hasn’t baked in a while.

I think they turned out great. And Daddy had better get up soon because we want to eat them.

Happy Veteran’s Day to our Marine.

    Lovely! Such a wonderful thing to celebrate the Marine birthday and Veteran’s Day all in one. We’re so very thankful for all those who served and continue to do so – both in the service and as their support at home.
