Say it isn't so!

After reading Christine's post of yesterday, I'm hoping cupcakes haven't gone out of favor. But, as Lisa said, if they do, I'll just have to be "so yesterday." I begin teaching a high school creative writing class at a Christian co-op in September, and I was thinking of taking a batch of cupcakes to kick off the start of the school year.

My thoughts went from first-day-of-school cupcakes to Halloween cupcakes where I could have cupcakes with "tombstones." Cupcakes that look like the ones to the right would be great for November or December, don't you think?

Besides, who wouldn't love the teacher who brings them cupcakes? Do you know a better bribe? ;-)

I will NEVER give up cupcakes! You're right, they make an excellent bribe. For summer, I've been making lemon cupcakes frosted with buttercream and drizzled with melted strawberry jam.

I love cupcakes! When one or two of the grandkids spends the night, they help make their favorite. Usually we make them with recipe for banana bread, then we drizzle chocolate or caramel (or both) ice cream topping over them and sprinkle nuts over all... yummy!

The pictured cupcakes are perfect for winter holidays. But, I can't find the silver ball candies anywhere.

Kids will ALWAYS love cupcakes! Take them some cupcakes. They'll love you for it.
