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.
Decorating your Cupcakes, you can decorate your cupcakes with just about anything you use to decorate larger cakes. Some of the most popular cupcake decorations are grated coconut, gum drops, piped flowers and figures, shaved chocolate, whimsical designs created with candies - and of course sprinkles. Filling Cupcakes to fill a cupcake, cut out a cone from the top. Then place a teaspoon of filling inside. Before replacing the top, cut off its cone (since the space it filled is not filled with filling). Cupcake Cakes also called pull-apart cakes, these are perfect for birthday parties and youth events. Each guest pulls off a cupcake. Serving’s a cinch and clean-up’s, well a piece of cake. And a great plus with little ones - everyone gets the same size serving! You can sculpt a cupcake cake into just about any shape you can imagine: numbers (for birthday ages), sports (footballs, team logos and names, etc.) holiday figures, flowers, Easter baskets and bunnies, cats and dogs, well you get the picture. The shape doesn’t have to be exact (and probably won’t), but the decorating will add the realism. Here’s how it works: Bake cupcakes in double liners (for extra strength). Arrange baked cupcakes on a covered, sturdy cake board. Play around with this until you get the shape you want. Staggering works best, and keep them close together. Dab icing onto the bottoms of the cupcake liners, returning them as you do to their original positions. The icing will, once it dries, help hold the cupcakes in position. Crumb-coat. This is optional. Thin some icing or make a glaze. Spread over all the cupcakes. Crumbs will show, but that’s ok. When it dries, the crumbs won’t be swept up into your final coat of icing. When the crumb coat has dried, smooth your regular icing over the whole cupcake cake Decorate.
Here a few of my special tips for making kids cupcakes for toddlers: 1. Make it sweet. Toddlers have a huge sweet tooth. I know this because my daughter has no problem eating two ice-cream cones- one in each hand! Don’t serve toddlers lemon or carrot cake flavored cupcakes; they may not eat them! Chocolate or vanilla is your best bet for kids cupcakes. 2. Buy special decorating tools. The more tubes and tips you have, the more designs you can make! A basic cupcake and cake decorating set will allow you to make hundreds of different designs. Decorating tools will allow you to make some really fun kids cupcakes that your toddlers will love. You can find decorating tools online or at your local craft store. 3. Use lots of color! Toddlers love everything about color; they love to color and they love to eat anything that is colorful! For instance, have you ever noticed how much kids love Lucky Charms? Guess what their favorite part of the cereal is; the colored marshmallows, of course! If I make a few different colored cupcakes, it seems my toddler always goes for the ones with the most vibrant colored frosting. 4. Remember, toddlers love texture! If you add some kind of candies to your kids cupcakes, there is no way any toddler will leave your side. A yummy cupcake with delicious looking frosting will probably make your cupcakes compelling enough to eat, but the ultimate way to hook your picky eater is to add candies. These rules are not only useful for baking kids cupcakes your toddler will love. Follow my rules and you will have an arsenal of tools and a variety of candies on hand for whatever baking adventure you pursue! Melody A enjoys baking cupcakes, cakes and party planning.

I love cupcakes. Nothing is prettier that a cupcake. A cupcake is a small, individual version of a cake. A cupcake stands alone, or you can place in a group. Personalize them into your own creative cupcake recipe and baking creation.
