My girls love being able to have some independence in the kitchen and decorating cupcakes is such a great way to give that to them. We spotted them on the cover of REAL SIMPLE and decided to come up with our own version based on the ingredients we found at the local grocery store.
A basic box of cake mix, a tub of frosting, sprinkles, and gummy candies!
It was as easy as 1-2-3. Frost, add a gummy worm, set in the wings. Done!
These would be great for a spring party or as a special preschool treat. My boys both studied the lifecycle of a butterfly in preschool and got to raise a little caterpillar and watch it transform into a butterfly at home. It was so neat!
