One of the most important parts of any party is the FOOD!! Unfortunately, it's also one of the most stressful aspects of party planning. We at SophiasStyle.com children's clothing store put our collective heads together to come up with some time and money saving ideas for party planning. The one that stuck out the most was the cake!
Why go to the time, labor and expense of a large cake that will take time to cut and serve. Bake a large batch of cupcakes. You can do chocolate, white, marble and even carrot flavored. You can use fun printed cupcake liners, basic paper or foil liners. Then mix up a large batch of frosting (you know the drill - powdered sugar, vanilla and milk). Divide up the frosting into multiple smaller containers. Then, pick out the colors and start tinting. You can frost the cupcakes in rainbow colors or just a couple of colors. Add some sprinkles, jimmies or a piece of candy (watch the choking hazard). Make sure to make enough for the kids to eat there, and maybe take one home to a brother or sister who did not join them. Do not forget the special birthday person! Make their cupcake extra special and with room for the candle!
If you have a cake tier, you can tier the cupcakes up like shown above. Makes quite the presentation.
