Child's Crown Pattern

Here is a pattern for a child's crown I made. You can print it out on normal 8.5 x 11 cardstock. I am letting the boys decorate it to wear for our New Year's celebration tonight. Feel free to use it. Happy New Year!

Healthy-ish Cupcakes

Yesterday, I made 60 healthy-ish cupcakes for Nicholas and Lucas's school birthday parties. The recipe was passed along by Nick's teacher and I am not sure where it came from originally.  All the kids (and myself) loved them. Here is the recipe:

Applesauce Cake/Cupcakes

2 1/2 cups unbleached white flour

1 1/12 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup honey or sugar

2 cups applesauce

1 egg

1/2 cup oil

Mix together flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl combine the honey/sugar, applesauce, egg and oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to mix. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan or make them into cupcakes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes if using 9x13 or 18 minutes if doing cupcakes.
