Party Recap

Maya is a big cupcake fan ,so she asked for a Fancy Birthday Party Cupcake for her special day. Since we had a lot of guests and a very beautiful weather, we set up party in our backyard. As usual, I hang a name banner for a birthday girl and few cupcake garlands for that special occasion. Table was filled with lunch type of foods, lots of salads, tarts, pizza, fruit, cheese, crackers, all easy to grab and snack on. For a main activity, I made about 120 cupcakes in 3 different flavors, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. After guests had lunch , run and played around the backyard, we have started our fancy cupcake project. First, kids designed their aprons for their bakeries .I got a great selection of colorful aprons from Oriental Trading Company, and that worked out really great. After that, everyone was asked to design a label for their bakeries to attached to their personal cupcake boxes. The big finale ,of course, was decorating cupcakes . I had big plans for running a demo about using different techniques/ tips etc. for cupcake decorating, but since we had about 18 kids, very eager to decorate, not much into listening, I had skipped that part and hand it out frosting to then and let them do the free style decorating, which turned out to be just a perfect way to do it. After that we finished Maya's party with Happy Birthday song and big Birthday Cupcake :).
