I baked these delicious cup cakes for Kaightlyn’s school birthday party.  Her fellow pre-K students and teachers loved the moist chocolate chiffon and strawberry cakes topped with my light swiss buttercream icing!  Oh to turn 5 again, and have the world at your finger tips!  Happy Birthday Lover!

Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays.

It is often called the Lunar New Year, especially by people in mainland China and Taiwan.  January 26th 2009 is the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, met with celebrations and observations by ethnic Chinese and others around the world. This year, we welcome the Year of the Ox, the sign representing solemn hard work and prosperity – an animal that appears aptly symbolic for these difficult times.  Here you can see some amazing pictures of the celebration across China.

My daughters Pre-K class celebrated Chinese New Year.  They all learned how to say “Gung Hay Fat Choy”, happy new year in Chinese.  At snack time they ate noodles with chop sticks and enjoyed these chocolate chiffon cupcakes with Swiss buttercream and the word “ox” in English and Chinese on them from BC.   I am so amazed at the effort our schools put into educating our children and opening their eyes to other cultures and new things.  It was a wonderful day!

The first 30 cup cakes were made into a semi newly invented “pull away” cake.  They are chocolate chiffon cup cakes with my all new Golden Vanilla Buttercream icing.  Let me tell you, it is much more difficult to ice “somethings” tha move, than a real cake.  However, the finished product did look very nice and the birthday boy was especially happy.  John turned 4 in November, remember the Saturn 5, John 4 cake?   Well John was supper sick by the time I finished his cake and his party had to be post-poned.  This is his second cake for his official party.  We let him pick, and boy does he love supper hero’s!    Happy (2nd) 4th birthday John!
