Did you know Wednesday was Vanilla Cupcake Day?

I can’t tell you how useful my Sandra Boynton calendar has proved to be this past year. I may just have to get another for 2022.

Meantime, P and I made sure we celebrated the day in style …

Gifted to P on G’s birthday

  1. Parker looks quite pleased and the cupcakes look luscious. The sprinkles on the cupcakes echo the sand on the painting and since it is going to be a gift for her, double joy all around.

    Here in anticipation of getting my Covid booster, I took out some devil food cake that I made last week. I like to make a big 13x9x2 inch pan of cake , cut into portions and freeze. you never know when you might need cake and having just returned from getting my Covid booster, a cup of tea and a piece of chocolate goodness is just right.


    1. great idea … never thought to freeze extra cake rather than let it torture me sitting on the counter …

      and Parker took one look at Don’s assemblage in progress and correctly saw it as “beach” … that was all it took for him to gift it to her


    1. funny you should say that … I just had to adjust her car seat since getting her buckled in had become quite a challenge … sadly, we have to remain cautious since P is too young to be vaccinated, so we don’t get to take her out to as many places as we’d like …


  2. Gorgeous! I have just discovered this thing called a cupcake topper (over on Velma’s blog) and it had me in stitches. Who knew??? That calendar is brilliant – I love how it gives permission for a bit of fun and out of left field on certain days.


    1. cupcake toppers? I didn’t know (and how did I miss that on Velma’s blog?) … and yes, Sandra Boynton has been making me laugh ever since I discovered her “Hippo birthday, two ewes” cards in college over 40 years ago … I’m so glad she’s still creating!
