On my Honor

Pin It!
I didn’t make the switch to veganism until high school, but I was chocolate-covered as early as first grade. It was then that I became a Brownie. No, I don’t mean the fudgy confection you eat; I’m talking about the Girl Scouts’ group.I loved my time as a Brownie… and I know I’m not the only one who really enjoyed being a scout. Take my neighbor, Erik, for example. He liked being a scout so much that he stuck with the organization all the way from elementary school (as a Cub Scout) until age 18 (where he earned his Eagle Scout honor).

Earning one’s Eagle Scout status is a BIG deal. It involves organizing a service project (Erik painted the local community center), accumulating at least 21 merit badges, and standing before a review board.

To celebrate Erik’s accomplishment, his family threw him a huge party. And they hired me to make the cupcakes!

By the end of the party, there were quite a lot of bright blue tongues!

    To respond to your response (lol) I felt like an ass after I left that comment because I guess I skimmed over the post and missed the part where you clearly labeled what the vegetables were!! *stupid*

    I too was a girl scout though juniors. Our youngest daugher made it all the way to cadets and was an assistant to a brownie troop. Great program!

    We have young men who have earned their Eagle Scout Honor. Very big deal in our church and well deserved. They really do some amazing projects.

    You are awesome and I am sure everyone was thrilled with your cupcakes. They are perfect!
