Do you know what can help pass the time when you are stuck home because you haven’t quite been fever free for 24 full hours so you can’t return to school?
Baking.
Specifically, doing some semi-homemade baking.
Like these semi-homemade Blue Raspberry Cupcakes. So simple and fun to make, but also a little bit different than normal.

  • OH yummy. I think my daughter would absolutely love this idea, she is all for colorful food cooking and she is by far a better baker than this Mom… Yes. My 11 year old daughter bakes the most perfect of goodies while I make them either too hard or not fully baked through. Every Single Time.
