Happy Birthday, Girl Scouts!

March 12th commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization's first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia.

Dora's leader sent out an email last night asking if someone would be willing to send in cupcakes for tonight's meeting. One parent responded with "ha ha!" but you-know-who stepped up to the challenge ... crazy baker lady.

These would have been from scratch if not for a last-minute project that popped up today. Rats.

For vanilla kind of girls ...

And chocolate lovers.

Happy 98th birthday, Girl Scouts! Thank you for creating accepting, nurturing, challenging environments for many generations of women. Thank you to all the leaders and volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to help girls develop friendships and skills for success.


  1. What luck! I wandered onto your blog and happen to be baking cupcakes tonight (or baking a cake) for our troop to celebrate the 98th birthday of Girl Scouts ... our meeting is tomorrow. I love your little emblems. Did you print those out on your home printer?

  2. Hi Shelly! I printed them out at home on card stock (did an image search for the logo), used a little paper punch to cut them out and taped them onto toothpicks. Have fun!
