School Party Idea - Decorate your own cupcakes

Lydia's sad little peanut allergy often keeps her from joining in the fun at school functions. As such, I thought I would make sure her birthday treats were a little more exciting than the usual grocery store cupcakes.

I saved a week's worth of plastic baby food containers and filled them with homemade buttercream icing. Then I packaged some candy for decoration. Nerds, skittles, gummy worms and marshmallows. A little plastic ring to top it off.


I wrapped up the supplies along with a plastic knife and set up the preschool table with cupcakes and juice.

Some of the kids just ate the frosting and candy, some showed real culinary prowess with their decorating skills. In all it was a fun (and easy) party for a bunch of 4 year olds. Of course, I left before the sugar high hit :)

Very cool Mama. We did this for Cameron's Birtday Party at home. It was a huge hit with the kids and adults!

Wrong subject, I know, but you really must look at this yellow/grey camera bag. It screamed you when I saw it.
