Presidential Cupcakes - Books With Recipes

It's little late for this year, especially with the libraries closed for the day, but we found a terrific Cherry-Nut Cupcake recipe, to go along with the legend of George Washington cutting down the cherry tree... the back of one of our President's Day easy chapter books.

I recommend the book, which focuses on Washington, and the recipe, for next year, for families with girls, at least. Boys might object to reading an American Girls story, and making pink cupcakes. My boys however, did not mind eating them - they are very yummy.

If you're still looking for ideas for you children for this year, I recommend clicking over to to view today's free feature video clip on Abraham Lincoln.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

Hi! I came across your site doing a bit of research. If you're still doing these sorts of lessons, you might be interested in On this site, each of the US presidents is interpreted as a cupcake. There are few recipes on the site, but it shows a way that one can engage with history.
