Disclaimer: The pictures were taken by my 5 year old. She needed a project. 🙂
One of the best things for me about baking, writing cookbooks, and doing signings, is that everyone learns that I love to bake. There’s always a reason in my opinion, and when I am asked to help out with a project that includes baking, if I’m free, the answer is yes.
So when the principal of our elementary school asked me to participate with the Teacher’s Birthday Party this year- I was so happy.
No only does she give them a gift certificate for 30 minutes of her time- she usually teaches the classes while the teacher takes a break- this year they each got their own birthday cupcake. Happy Birthday to all the great teachers! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job for each of my children!
Plastic cups are a perfect easy and cheap cupcake container. I filled mine with some red paper shreds.
Then, made cute hand written Happy Birthday notes.
Then stuffed a un-frosted cupcake into the cup, then frosted and decorated with candles and rainbow sprinkles.
Once I was done with this step, I had purchased single plastic baggies and wrapped each cupcake like a present…. and used ribbon that looked like a ruler. (sorry no photo)
