An Interview w/ RecipeBoy on his Birthday (& Snickerdoodle Cupcakes)

It’s my boy’s 9th birthday today, so I thought I’d ask him a few questions…

9

What special cake did you request for your birthday?
Snickerdoodle Cupcakes for my classroom birthday treat, and Chocolate Cake with Caramel Buttercream for my birthday party.

What’s the best thing about being 9?
I’m older, and I’m not really young again.

What would you like to be when you grow up?
I’m leaning toward being a scientist (or a pro-sports player).

What’s your favorite subject in school?
Math and Reading

What do you like to do in your free time?
Play the Wii and the Computer

If you were to recommend a book to another 9 year old, what would you recommend?
Harry Potter series, Where the Red Fern Grows, and Hatchet

Favorite place to vacation?
Boston- South Shore

Favorite singer/band?
Elvis… and Train

Ravioli

What’s the best recipe your Mom has ever made?
Too many to count

That’s a good answer, my sweet 9 year old boy :) Hope your birthday wish comes true!

    And how cute is THIS GUY!! I want to bring him home w/me! I raised 2 boys as a single mom way back when, and this just brings back so many memories. I literally snorted at the ‘that girl who danced on cruise ships’ answer – HAPPY BIRTHDAY RECIPE BOY!!

    Happy Birthday from the girl who danced on cruise ships! That cracked me up! You had some pretty good dance moves yourself bud. You did great in those shows at Club Med. Hope you have an awesome day.

    Snickerdoodle cupcakes?!? My husband will be in heaven if I make those, because Snickerdoodles are one of his favorite cookies. I shall have to try making this. And happy birthday to the birthday boy! :)

    When I asked my then 9-year-old daughter on my weekly radio podcast if she liked having a cookbook author as a mom, she said no, because it was so hard always being asked to try things (she is a bit of a drama queen). I like your son’s answers much better! Love the cupcakes.

    How sweet! I’m admittedly not a huge fan of actual Snickerdoodles but can’t deny the appeal of them in cupcake form.
