The kids were helpful at first but they eventually began to care less about making the cupcakes and more about eating whatever they could get their hands on so my little sister stepped in on the fun! Our cupcakes after baking (shown below)........we used a recipe from the book but we added some fresh apple cider in them which gives them a darker color but an awesome flavor!
after cooling my sister and I mixed up and colored the frosting and got to decorating
We thought they looked pretty awesome!
Some of our creepy cakes!!
My kids, sister and I are not "bakers" on any level but we were very proud of what this kit helped us do! I think these kits would be awesome for a family bake night like we did or to use for your children's class during a holiday celebration! Another idea would be to use it for your holiday celebrations at your own house! I gurantee guests will think you worked harder than you really did on them! The mini book that comes with the kit is a great help for those of you that are not the most creative bakers (like me!)! I plan on ordering the Christmas Cupcake Kit as well! Christmas is not that far off so thanks to Peter Pauper Press one of you will win the Christmas Cupcake Kit Valued at $9.95
Giveaway will end October 28th 2011!
