May Day Cupcakes

May Day is near and dear to my heart – it’s my birthday!!  It is not, however, a holiday typically observed in the United States.  In fact, I never danced around the maypole until my mid-twenties when I searched hard for a May Day event in St. Louis.  I wanted to learn more about my birthday holiday.  What I found when I attended the event was a very small group of people who were truly joyous (singing, dancing, and being generally merry) about the coming of May (I liked t0 think of it as the coming of my birthday!).

This year, I’ve created celebratory May Day cupcakes.   My cupcake’s maypole is a homemade pixy stick with ribbon glued to it (a hot glue gun works best, but I’m sure plain white glue would do the trick).  I modeled my May Day cupcakes after the Mini May Pole Cakes by Studio DIY on Instructables.  They also used a straw for the Maypole, but I turned the straw into a pixy stick!

If you are from a country that celebrates May Day, enjoy yourself and know that I may show up on your doorstep some day ready to celebrate with you.  I plan to have a huge May Day birthday party somewhere outside the United States one of these days.

    Happy early birthday!! My high school best friend’s birthday is May 1st too. As far as I know, she hasn’t searched around to dance around a traditional May Pole, but if you ever come across one in California, I’ll let her know!

    I remember celebrating May Day in elementary school, dancing around the maypole. I think these cupcakes would have been a great addition to the festivities :)

    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine
    Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Kudos!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
    blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  10. I know this sounds wrong and you are asking how will this get
    him back. Instead, try to think positively – not just about him,
    but about your life in general. Take the classes that you never had time to take,
    when you were dating.

  12. I know this sounds wrong and you are asking how will this get him back.
    Have you changed in any way that takes away from the person that you
    used to be. If he is been frequently coming back around
    yet lets you know that he is unprepared to reconcile,
    focus more on his actions than what he says.
