My daughter just completed her final year of preschool and I volunteered to bring cupcakes to the class celebration. I wasn't sure what kind of cupcakes I wanted to make, so to make it easier I asked Ava to see what she would like. When I asked her what kind of cupcakes she wanted me to make, she told me vanilla and cherry frosting. I should have known....Jake is my chocolate lover and Ava is always about vanilla. I had previously made a cherry chocolate cupcake that my son loved, so I thought let's do a version that Ava will equally enjoy. Thus, I created a vanilla cupcake with a cherry almond buttercream topped with a white chocolate covered cherry. My daughter was not disappointed....she especially loved the frosting and cherry, of course!
Thanks a latte to all of the wonderful teachers making a difference everyday in our children's lives. You do so much and it is important that you know how appreciated you are by your students and their parents. It takes a special person to teach and to shape the minds and lives of our little ones. In honor of teacher appreciation week and to show my kids' teachers how wonderful we think they are, I have made them latte and donut sugar cookies. Cheers to all of you this week and every day of the year!
