Lunar, solar, gregorian - there are many types of calendars, but did you know about the CUPCAKE CALENDAR? They don't teach it in schools but it's easy to learn (though constantly changing). It runs on a monthly basis and revolves around the cupcake schedule at the Candy Store on Richmond Road. Try making it a decadent Saturday tea party with your little ones! Cupcakes can be pre-ordered by contacting the store.
If you're more inclined to do your own baking and create your own flavours, get your kids involved in setting up your own family c\upcake calendar and make the anticipation of those saturday afternoons as scrumptious as the cupcakes themselves.
For the cupcake calendar itself visit http://www.thecandystoreottawa.ca/. Cupcakes include such decadent flavours as carrot with walnuts and pineapple, black & white belgian dark chocolate, key lime pie, chocolate raspberry and chocolate oreo.
