I sat down to write this post and soon realized I was going on a rant about the Internet.
Then I thought I best rewrite and get to the point. The point being these cupcakes made for my daughter's birthday lunch with her friends.
My youngest turned 4 last Saturday and we had a few friends around for lunch the day before. One of her friend’s parents are vegan and they are raising their children as vegans too.
Since I've made some amazing vegan cupcakes using Ms. Cupcake's book, I turned to it again.
She has a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake in the book, but Baby Baker wanted a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting so that’s what I made her!
They turned out pretty good! Of course the cakes turned out to be more for the parents then the children. Frosting was licked off and tiny bite marks were left on the cakes.
I consider that a success!
The cake was soft and chocolaty and the frosting was full of peanut buttery goodness! The parents liked them!
In a nutshell, referring back to my rant I mentioned above, I do have a personal love hate relationship with the Internet.
However, when it comes to my children, I tend to err on the side of caution. I personally don’t think I would have appreciated my parents plastering my childhood over the Internet for the world to see.
I respect that my children will one day be adults and, as I can’t predict how they will feel about it I don’t offer much information about them on here. Or to be far on any social media site - much to my long distance family and friends distress.
I could go on and on about this subject, but since I already wasted about 20 minutes doing so then realizing I was rambling and it made no sense as a blog post I took a break and wrote something that made a bit more sense.
Question: Am I the only one who feels the same way? If you're of a generation, like me that grew up without the internet reflecting back would you like anyone being able to access your childhood photos and stories? Also would you like to try these cupcakes? Please leave a comment below or on twitter or facebook (oh the irony)!
