Nutty chocolate cupcakes with a creamy buttercream frosting and decorated with colored sugar, these chocolate almond cupcakes will be a hit with the little ones
I grew up in a very supportive family. I remember, years ago, when I was in school, every year my parents enrolled me in a different extra curricular activity. Over the course of years, I’ve tried painting, drawing, sewing, tennis, dancing, pottery, singing, handball and basketball. Except basketball, the rest were fun at the beginning, but after few classes I did not find them interesting enough to make me look forward to the next class.
Not one year my parents complained I was changing my interest. They let me discover what sparkled my interest.
Some years I was really jealous with my sister. She loved dancing from the very first moment she stepped in the dancing room and went back year after year until highschool. Now, that I’m a parent I want to let my daughter find what makes her happy. About a year ago we asked her what she loves most. Soccer was her quick answer. And to sing. And bounce. And play piano.
Until recently we could not find a soccer team she can be part of, but she’s been taking piano lessons ever since and we’re all so proud of her. She’s now looking forward to her weekly piano and soccer classes.
I love that she found something she’s interested in. I know, maybe in a year or two she may want to try something else and I will support her no matter what she chooses. When she’s not singing along with the cd player or practicing the piano, we find ourselves making sweet treats, throwing tea parties for the dolls or coloring, displaying the color pages in her room or the kitchen art wall for everyone to admire.
Sunday night, we cuddle up on the sofa to watch a Disney movie. No matter if it’s a classic like Cinderella or a new production like Sofia the First, The Floating Palace, it’s our time. No matter what, we make time for movie and cuddles. Speaking of Disney movies, we’re both excited about the All-New Tinker Bell movie The Pirate Fairy available on Blu-ray and Digital HD starting April 1st. Click here to purchase your own copy.
