With the boom of the cupcake popularity this party theme is sure to be a hit with little girls and big girls alike. The current trend also means that brands like Reynolds are making affordable, bright, fun cupcake papers available at grocery stores and big box stores. Years ago I hosted a cake decorating party where I prepared about 10 different shades of homemade frosting, and everyone brought a cake and some sort of decoration (edible glitter, sugar, candies, etc). I had a batch of cupcakes available for guests who wanted to do more, and for folks who dropped by to visit but didn’t bring a cake. The result was delicious, hysterical, and full of memories. For kids I would recommend one cupcake per child and a limited about of frosting colors and candies, just to keep the mess manageable. Also, if you’re coloring your own frosting, make sure it’s well mixed and use a disposable tablecloth as food color pastes stain super easily.
