Yes - it is Penguin Awareness Day. Let me guess, you had no idea. Not many people do it seems. But it seemed like a nice holiday to celebrate with a 2 year old.
We decided to have a special dinner for Taft. He had fish sticks (since penguins eat fish) and mashed potatoes (since they look like snow). He loved it.
All week I was thinking about a special desert. Cupcakes were the first thing that crossed my mind. Taft has been asking for cake all week so it would work out perfect. I mentioned that I was going to get cupcakes from the grocery store and look for some little penguins to go on top. My friend at work, Yvette, suggested something a little different. She said to get the Hostess cupcakes that are chocolate with white icing. They kind of look like a tuxedo. I thought that it was perfect. I got them today and some red icing to add a little bow tie. Taft was thrilled, mostly because there was cake. He was a little surprised that they had cream in the middle.
