Winnie the Pooh Day

Winnie the Pooh Day (not to be confused with Pooh's birthday) happens on January 18th every year. We have now officially added this holiday to our family "Wheel of the Year."

For our celebration this year, we made cupcakes and decorated them to look like bees, and I made a Bundt cake with a honey glaze to represent the beehive.  Unfortunately, the bees' stripes started sliding off the icing about half an hour after we decorated them, and the honey glaze was so watery it soaked into the cake and made it mushy.  So we'll work on refining our techniques for future years.  The only absolute keeper was the "smackerel of honey" cream cheese frosting we made for the cupcakes.  Well, I suppose we can keep the pretzel wings, as well.

We hosted a little party and the kids really enjoyed putting their own wings on the bees.  Ian received a copy of The House At Pooh Corner from Mommy as a gift in honor of the day, and it has become a story time staple ever since.
