Cupcakes!

Last weekend my sister-in-law hosted a cupcake decorating party. I have to admit that I wasn't all that enthused when she invited us... cake decorating really isn't my thing... but we went along to support her (and on the off chance that we might actually get to eat said cupcakes!). Well, we had a blast! It was so much fun sitting at the table decorating these little cakes using a variety of pastes, icing and butter cream as well as tools, piping bags and cutters. My daughters thought it was fantastic and sat totally enthralled for two and a half hours! Plus, we got to take home six cupcakes each... much to the delight of my hubby and eight year old son.

The cupcakes I decorated... not so different from decorating cards really.

  5. Oooh - Cupcakes are all the rage now! How fun - I've not heard of cupcake parties! How sweet you got to bring so many home with you! I'm sure your son and husband were delighted! Your 10 year old did a fabulous job! Are they afraid to try anything at this age?

  15. Ahhh..they are fantastic cupcakes, your daughters should be very proud of themselves. I love to bake and decorate cupcakes with my grandchildren. My grandson has only just got past the stage of putting every bit of glitter or flower on 'his' cake. It does make a lovely way of spending a couple of hours.
