Aaronic Priesthood

 On Will's Birthday night he received the Aaronic Priesthood. It was a very special evening and we had many wonderful friends and family in attendance!
The brethren that stood in were Scott, Harley, the Bishop, Ben, Chris, Dave, Jordan and Jackson. THANK you all for being great examples to Will and sharing with us this special event. Also to other family and friends who were in attendance. (Mom, Bill, Bubbles, Angie, Kelsey, Colten, Tricia, Nicole and the 10 Deacons in Will's class!!)

Will wanted fresh strawberry cupcakes. I made a test run earlier in the week and they came out great! They really were terrific cupcakes! Happy birthday Will! I am so proud of you for being worthy and having a desire for the priesthood!! 

Strawberry Cupcakes
2 3/4 C flour
1/2 C cake flour
1 T baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 C. Butter (room temp)
2 1/4 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs and 1 egg white
1 C milk
2 C finely chopped strawberries

Preheat oven to 350*. Sift together both flours, baking powder and salt.

Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla. until fluffy. Add whole eggs and white one at a time. Add flour mixture, alternating with milk. Fold in chopped strawberries. Cook 25-30 minutes. Let completely cool.

For the frosting I made a cream cheese frosting but I added finely chopped strawberries to that too. Will didn't want fluffy frosting, so I made it a little different. They turned out great!!
