Cupcakes are all the rage and so much fun to make with kids. I invited 7 friends of my 8 year old granddaughter for what they called a “Cupcake Workshop”. We had an absolutely brilliant time.
I wanted them to actually do the cupcakes, not only decorate them. So instead of a cupcake mixture which needs an electric mixer, I used a simple muffin recipe that doesn’t need much beating,
I made the buttercream previously because it had to be beaten with an electric mixer. I divided the buttercream in 7 bowls and gave the girls the food colouring so they would make their own coloured buttercream. I used bowls with different types of decoration possibilities and each decorated their own “cupcakes”.
This is just an idea that really worked so well, that I wanted to share with you because it was so much fun and so easy. Hope you get the time to enjoy this with your children or grandchildren.
