We finally took Emma to the dentist. I don't think she would have done well at a young 2. ...And I decided it would be a good idea for her to come with one of us for our next teeth cleaning. She got to see me get my teeth cleaned, meet her doctor, and ride in the chair with me. So I scheduled her appointment for the morning when she's fresh... She did awesome!
Decided to try some chocolate cupcakes that I want to make for her birthday this past weekend for Father's Day since Dennis is a chocoholic like Emma. She helped make the cupcakes this time, but I could tell she was getting tired and, like we normally try to do, I told her to go lie down in her bed, which usually doesn't happen... She's only done this one other time, but I couldn't believe how quiet it was and sure enough...about an hour too!
I finished up the baking and needed to pull out the new cupcake holders I bought and took a double-take when I saw that it said "No muffin pans needed!" What? So most were done and no problem if the last few didn't come out right so tried it!
Could not believe. So easy to fill with just holding the cup and filling half way and then placed on top of the cookie sheet. They do flare out a little, but not a problem for me ;)
I knew this would be the cupcake for her birthday, the first time she asked for more to eat...did put a little chocolate chips in there to try, so will have to do more next time around...
Easy to bake and decorate. Found the recipes on line. Mom's Chocolate Cupcakes and Creamy Chocolate Frosting.
We had a great Father's Day weekend and day spent at Wendy and Joey's with sweet Merrin. Always enjoy being around them and their families. And I love talking and eating good food with Wendy! I'm checking those links out...thanks again, Wendy! Hope everyone had a great Father's Day and/or weekend!
