My friend invited us to her house for a BBQ dinner. My two daughters were thrilled because my husband was deployed at the time and I don't BBQ, so it was a great treat! I told her I would bring dessert! I made vanilla cupcakes with chocolate ganache frosting. I used candy and edible marker to decorate the tops (I think this idea came from the Family Fun Magazine). This became a weekly treat and other wives whose husbands were deployed joined us!
