Birthday Cupcakes

Every year in the past I have provided all of my students with cupcakes on their birthday.  This year I thought it would be fun to allow two of the students to decorate the cupcakes for their classmates birthday.  Today was our second birthday of the school year, and cupcake decorating is NOT that easy for my kids!  We used butter knives last time, and what a mess!  They kept lifting the knife which kept pulling the top off the cupcakes and mixing cake with frosting, ugh.  This time I tried a piping bags with not much more success.  They were absolutely adorable tho!  I had to help towards the end and wish I had taken a picture of them before.  I think next birthday we may try dipping the cupcakes in a thinner frosting!  They are having a great time and really look forward to their turn in helping with their friends parties!

  2. Dipping cupcakes is a really good idea! Sometimes a spoon is easier to use than a butter knife if you want to give that a try too :)
