After I realized that my hubby is working on Columbus Day and most of the kids' friends are out of town, I decided to make the day off from school special. I gave them their "invitations" over the weekend. Then I bought so much processed artificially colored and flavored high fructose corn syrup at Target, it actually hurt to pay for it. When the clerk gave me a quizzical look, I shrugged and said, "I'm dieting." I just finished these three "starter" cupcakes to get the creative juices flowing, and the kids will spend part of tomorrow decorating the remaining two dozen. Happy Columbus Day (or Thanksgiving, if you're Canadian)!
