Our cupcake bakery birthday party was so much fun, and one of the highlights was the cupcake decorating!
They started out decorating some cute little paper mache cupcakes, I found at Walmart. I put out pink and white paint, and an assortment of jewel, and pearl stickers, along with red pom poms and glitter glue.
After the craft and some playing in the pretend cupcake bakery, it was time to decorate the real cupcakes.
I set up the dining room table for the decorating. Everyone had a cute little cupcake apron waiting for them on their chair, see how I made them here.
I bought cupcake bakery boxes for everyone to be able to bring their cupcakes home in.
I baked four kinds of cupcakes for decorating, chocolate chip, coconut, vanilla and chocolate.
We made vanilla frosting, and tinted it dark and light pink. We also made chocolate frosting. I had grand visions of putting the icing in piping bags for all the kids, but forgot to take the icing out of the fridge on the morning of the party in all the rush, so…we stirred it into submission and set out bowls and knives. Of course the highlight to the decorating were all the fun sprinkles and toppings. I was collecting for weeks finding every pink decoration I could.
The sugar roses from the bulk barn were a real hit with the little girls. I also used some pink chocolate to make some 5’s. I just melted it and put it in a zip lock with the corner sniped off to pipe them onto wax paper.
The kids loved their decorating, and took it very seriously.
Here’s a few of the finished products…someone likes cherries. 😉
The cupcake decorating was a real hit, everyone enjoyed it, and loved taking their little aprons, and finished cupcake masterpieces home in their “real” bakery boxes. With pink sprinkles in every shade, cherries, marshmallows, silver balls, pink chocolate fives, little heart cookies, chocolate chips, chocolate sprinkles, sugar roses, decorating sugars, and pink parties…life truly is a party!
