St Patrick’s Day Baking

Today is the 17th of March.  In Boston, it is a holiday called Evacuation Day.  Dad says Evacuation Day is the day the British were driven from Boston during the Revolutionary War.  I say it’s St Patrick’s Day!  My Dad and my brother are both named Patrick, so it’s a special day for my family.  Daddy had to do something to the car, fix the brakes or whatever.  While he played with the brakes, me and PJ played with the dog.  Dad promised we could make something special after he finished with the car.  We decided we would make chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting and green shamrocks.

Don’t These Look Yummy

First Dad made up a recipe, he always makes up his own recipes, it usually comes out good so I don’t mind.

Image

Dad, what’s first on the list?

We got to use the big mixer.   We put the butter and sugar in and started mixing.

Image

Daddy, can I turn it on?

I Cut the Butter into Small Pieces

PJ Helped With the Sugar

Wow, Look at How Good it Mixes.

Next we added melted chocolate, eggs, sour cream and vanilla.

Then We Mixed Some More

We got out another bowl and mixed together the dry ingredients.  We put flour, salt, baking powder and cocoa in the bowl.  Dad’s really funny, he wrote in his recipe to sift everything together but he just mixed it up with a fork.

So that’s how we made Shamrock Cupcakes.  Dad is making dinner and as soon as we eat we get to eat our cupcakes.  I can’t wait.
