As my two nieces and nephew, Clodagh, Diddi & Lochlan, have been visiting from Scotland and due to the fact that the weather in Blackpool is awful, we decided to have a cupcake decorating party. We also invited my other niece, Avila, to come.
They decided that they wanted to make chocolate cupcakes, they each took turns to mix all the ingredients together and of course once this was done they licked the spoons and bowl, which in my eyes is the best part of making cupcakes!
Whilst the cupcakes were in the oven, they decorated cupcake toppers, that I had made from rolled out icing and cut out shapes using cookie cutters. They used icing pens, which are like felt tips but edible, to draw on their designs and finished them off with a few smarties.
Once the cupcakes were cooked and left to cool, I gave each of them a bowl of icing to mix, we used pink, blue, yellow and green food colouring. They then began to decorate the cupcakes, using icing, the cake toppers, that they had made and sprinkles.
I took a photo of each of them with their favorite cupcake and then they ate them and within seconds the cupcakes had gone!
We had a really good afternoon, they had loads of fun! It was a great way to keep them occupied for the afternoon but I think that the best part of the day for them was, without a doubt, eating the cupcakes!!
