One of the traditions I try to uphold for everyone’s birthday is special homemade cupcakes. I am not the greatest baker…but they usually turn out pretty well (except for the time I burned the whole batch and had to go out last minute to buy some). This year, Augie told me that he wanted a cake for his birthday with ALL the pups on it…and the lookout. He ended up settling for cupcakes with different pup badges on them – thank goodness! Once he saw the badges he forgot all about the lookout and the scene he created in his little mind for his cake.
If nothing else, he OBVIOUSLY enjoyed licking the batter. The cupcakes turned out pretty well too.
