My youngest son just turned 10 years old and he is a serious lover of baked goods. mmm..wonder where he gets that from? He even has his own section in the recipe index over on my other blog, Table for Seven.

For a fun ( and delicious) activity this week, we decided to make classic vanilla cupcakes and he was in charge of decorating them. OK, I did do some of the piping on a few, but, otherwise, he did them all.
