Last Sunday, Julia and Anna baked cupcakes as a fun Mothers’ Day activity. Here are some photos.
Mixing the batter.
Julia put vanilla extract in the batter, and as the cupcakes baked the whole house smelled of vanilla. Once they were baked and had cooled, it was time to frost them.
Frosting the cupcakes.
And to decorate. Tuesday was Apraxia Awareness Day, and Julia and Anna made these delicious treats to help spread the word.
Decorating the cupcakes (one blue ribbon on each).
Blue ribbons are a symbol for Apraxia. They also sprinkled some sparkly blue sprinkles over the tops as little stars.
For the final photo, they changed into their 2012 Apraxia Walk shirts.
And here’s a closeup look at the finished product.
They tasted great too.
The first Apraxia Awareness Day is history, and so are the cupcakes. But kids like Anna live with apraxia every day. Please visit CASANA (Apraxia-KIDS.org) to find out how you can help. And check back here as we will soon start fundraising for the 2013 Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech in Salem, Oregon.
