A game that all children love is " Pin the Cherry on the Cupcake ". You can buy fabric versions of the cupcake party game, but I always love a home-made copy that the children can help decorate. Draw a large cupcake on a sheet of large paper and decorate with lots of color and sparkles. This is a fun game and perfect for your cupcake theme party. I always find my children love coloring the cupcake as much as they like playing the game. Decorating the game could also become a party activity. When you want to keep the little guests occupied, get them to frost and decorate their own cupcakes. Make a batch of cupcakes, have bowls of different coloured frosting and a variety of sprinkles, candies and edible toppers and let the kids go wild! They can either eat their cupcake immediately or take it home with them. If you are planning to serve cupcakes as the birthday cake and don’t want to decorate them as a party game as well, make cookies in a cupcake shape (using a cupcake cookie cutter) and the children can decorate them instead. My children love painting plaster shapes. Cupcake shaped moulds are readily available, so make up some shapes prior to the party and let the children paint. Supply acrylic paints and have a range of glitter, beads, sequins etc to adhere to their faux cupcakes. My daughter and her friends love painting these and the finished results look spectacular and are really individual.
Watch your baking time and temperature. Use a good, reliable oven thermometer and check that the oven is at the correct temperature before you bake your cupcakes. Also, set your timer to a few minutes less than the recommended baking time Once the timer goes off, check the cupcakes to see if they are ready or actually need the rest of the baking time. This will help you avoid overcooked cupcakes. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center of one of the cupcakes. If it comes out clean, the cupcakes are done. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool on a wire cooling rack.
Another popular cupcake shop on the West coast is Sprinkles, located in Beverly Hills. Celebrities can be seen basking in cupcake glory just like the rest of us. Oprah, a very famous cupcake lover, has even given away free cupcakes as a treat to her audience. At some weddings, couples and their guests are enjoying a wedding cupcake tree instead of a traditional wedding cake. A cupcake tree features many decorative cupcakes - like a flower cupcake - sitting prettily on a cupcake stand or each delicate cake is placed into an individual cupcake box. If you don’t happen to live close to a cupcake shop, you can always indulge in some delicious cupcake eating at home. Why not get some friends together and throw a cupcake party? Cupcake decorating is fun and each of you can use your imagination to create your own cupcake decorating idea. Of course, every good cupcake decorating party has to include cupcake sprinkles, but you can also use marshmallows, cookies, candy bits, maraschino cherries, decorative frosting bags and tips and, of course, lots of creamy frosting. You too can take cupcake decoration to new heights of sugary sweet temptation.

A Little Cupcake History: What’s in a name? Well, for cupcakes, a lot! Cupcakes date back to the 19th Century where they were commonly known as "number cakes." These bite-sized cakes were accounted for according to the number of cups required for the necessary ingredients. Another theory for the origin of the cupcake name is the vessel in which the cakes were baked. Ramekins, tin or small clay cups were said to have contained the essential ingredients for cupcakes upon their initiation. Oddly enough, bakers today still choose to bake these fun treats in the same containers. Further down the line, cupcakes were referred to as "1234 cakes" or "quarter cakes" due to the four ingredients that were required for the recipe. Butter, sugar, flour, and eggs were the essential ingredients for these plain yellow cakes; a lighter and less expensive counterpart to the pound cake. By the 21st century, cupcakes have grown synonymous with birthday celebrations, particularly that of children. The small and personal size of these sweet cakes makes them perfect for children, possessing a dessert that fits perfectly into the palm of one’s hand. However, it wasn’t long before the adult scene caught onto this viral demand for a personalized cake. After a hit HBO series popularized a Manhattan "cupcakery," niche-driven cupcake joints popped up all across the globe. These treats went from simple and youth-oriented to gourmet and age-unspecified in a hot minute.
