Today’s National Winnie-the-Pooh Day!
On January 18th, in the year 1882, A.A. Milne, the creator of our beloved “Silly Old Bear” was born. Across The United States, we honor his birthday as a celebration of his most cherished character, Winnie-the-Pooh.
Is there a better way to do that than with a “Smackeral” of HUNNY Pot Cupcakes?
This weekend the kids and I are watching a few of our favorite Winnie-the-Pooh movies (Pooh’s Heffalump Movie is my personal favorite!) and celebrating his birthday with not just any old piece of cake. Victoria and I baked Honey Cupcakes with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting! Sounds yummy, doesn’t it? The recipe is by Lauren Kapeluck and can be found on The Cake Blog.com. Here’s a link to take you directly to her recipe for both the cupcakes and the frosting!

With any good party, you need to have a fun activity! The kids and I made “HUNNY” pot cupcake wrappers to give the special treats a proper presentation.
I came up with the idea to make them with Victoria (my 3 years old daughter) while her big brother, Gavin (7 years old) was at school. I was thrilled when he came home, saw what we were doing and wanted to make a few cupcake wrappers too! Being a “big” school boy now, I wasn’t sure how our latest theme for family weekend movie night would go over. Surprisingly, he enjoyed it as much as his baby sister!
Here’s a template for you to design your own “HUNNY” pot cupcake wrappers with your children!
