First birthday cupcakes

My daughter Evelyn turns one today. It’s a celebration for my wife and I as much as it is for our daughter, so I made cupcakes. I did the mixing with Evelyn. (She kept eating the flour.) I want to show my daughter that baking is not a “mum” activity, and cupcakes have little chance of error. They turned out slightly dry, but still great.

The only party hats the Warehouse had were “princess” themed. I was wanting something more gender-neutral, so I grabbed some gold wrapping paper and covered one. Another day in the life of a feminist dad.
