DECEMBER 15 - National lemon cupcake day, Bill of Rights day, Cat herders day

For every celebration, cupcakes are always in high demand. And, the more festive looking, the better. These cupcakes are really easy to make, and look and taste great.

Really Easy Lemon Cupcakes

  • 1 package of yellow cake mix
  • 1 tsp. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 can of whipping cream
  • Lemon gumdrop
  • Paper cupcake liners

How To
Prepare cake mix according to directions for cupcakes.
Add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to the batter.
Place cupcake liners in muffin tins.
Spoon batter evenly into cupcake liners, filling about half full.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until surface springs back when gently pressed with fingertips. (mini-cakes will bake a little faster)
Remove and place on wire rack; cool completely.
Frost with whipped cream and place a lemon drop in the center of each cake.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Today in 1791, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights,  were signed into law.
Congress for Kids explains the concepts clearly, and has some fun games to help kids learn about the Constitution.

It's Cat Herders Day. Sometimes, dealing with more than two kids at a time feels like herding cats. This funny video says it all.
