November 10, 2020 – National Vanilla Cupcake Day | Marine Corps Birthday
Have You Heard Of The Special Cake Cutting Ceremony For The Marine Corps Birthday?
Welcome to November 10th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the sweet life and the military branch that turned the tide of the Revolutionary War.
These days everyone could use a little sweetness. And what is sweeter than a personal sized vanilla cake with some buttercream and sprinkles? In fact the bakery known as Sprinkles tapped a trend that has continued to this day with their Los Angeles bakery that opened in 2005. The first recipe for cupcakes appeared in 1796 in Amelia Simmons’ “American Cookery,” and little did she know that chef Candace Nelson would eventually open a cupcake ATM in 2012 and 31 Sprinkles bakeries from coast to coast. On National Vanilla Cupcake Day it has never been easier to celebrate the sweet life.
After a few defeats at the hands of British forces, George Washington had requested troops that could fight on both land and sea. On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution to create two Battalions of Marines to serve with the Continental Army and these men changed the course of the Revolutionary War. Their first major test came when they landed on hostile shores in the Bahamas and captured New Providence Island. As a result, Captain Samuel Nicholas became the first commissioned officer in the Continental Marines and is celebrated as the Marines first commandant. On the Marine Corps Birthday we celebrate those who are always loyal to each other, their country and their traditions.
