Walker is a lucky boy but he’s not the only one who gets to enjoy fun things to eat. I saw a recipe for banana/chocolate cupcakes frosted and decorated to look like monkeys in the November PARENTS magazine. They are so adorable and relatively easy to make. However, I don’t like giving Walker full-size baked goods, especially those loaded with cookies and M&Ms on top (I can’t fathom the mess he’d make eating the treat or the chaos he’d cause hyped up on all that sugar) so I wasn’t sure when I’d have an opportunity to try them out. I didn’t have to wait long. I was reminded that there are number of good friends at work with October birthdays so I jumped at the opportunity to stay up late and bake away. (Is it bad that I went to shopping for refined sugar products rather than go to the gym?) And, they’re not only adorable, they’re tasty too!
