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 :)

    Most web based email providers had the ability to download POP email, but your email.
    Sound, quality relational database design and development requires considerable knowledge and
    expertise, no matter what the platform. In the modern Advice Era, small business effort is
    merely controlled by your pace together with efficiency with the engineering.

    I’m really inspired with your writing skills and also with the layout to your weblog.
    Is this a paid topic or did you modify it yourself?

    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.

  12. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of
    it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do
    you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    If he needs time to think about it, give him a deadline so he knows that you are serious.

    Whenever a person is still crazy about the ex-lover it is often very hard to quit bringing
    up past times. This is equally true whether the relationship had been a brief
    one or a long-term one.

    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.

    Here we share with you tips to successfully make an Aquarian man fall in love.
    Your ex needs to process their feelings surrounding the breakup and come to an understanding of their own feelings.
    Every day you delay you lessen your chances of getting your man back.

    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.
