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.
First Dad made up a recipe, he always makes up his own recipes, it usually comes out good so I don’t mind.
We got to use the big mixer. We put the butter and sugar in and started mixing.
Next we added melted chocolate, eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
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.
We added the dry ingredients to the big mixer, put in some water and mixed some more.
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.
