Saying ‘I love you’ with cupcakes at the Monroe library

Valentine Cupcakes

The Edith Wheeler Memorial Library hosted its Cupcake Valentine’s Day on Thursday afternoon. People of all ages were invited to decorate cupcakes for a valentine. There was a limit of one box of cupcakes per family, with a $3 per box donation requested to cover supplies.

The library provided an assortment of candies as well as pink, white and red sprinkles. Each family received a cup filled with white frosting. They were given a choice of all vanilla, all chocolate, or a combination of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes.


‘I like the really big cupcakes’

Students from St. Jude School in Monroe participated in making cupcakes at the library for the second year. “We had a lot of fun last year,” said Garrett Kalker, 12, of Monroe. “I like the really big cupcakes they have.”

Nathan Crudele, 3, and his sister Mira, 5, decorated two cupcakes each in what was the first time they have participated in the library’s Valentine’s Day program. Mira said they both had celebrated Valentine’s Day in school today. She attends Fawn Hollow Elementary School. “I brought in candy and cards and we made bags to put all of our Valentines in,” Mira said.
