This past Sunday, I threw a “Cupcake Cutie” birthday bash sleepover for Eliana to celebrate her 11th birthday! This is what the table looked like.
This is what the individual place settings looked like. We had to kinds of cupcake plates and lots of hot pink!
First the girls made taco salad cupcakes, taco salads made inside ramekins that are made to look like cupcakes.
A small tortilla is placed inside a ramekins and baked at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. Layers of lettuce, cheese, and ground meat are placed inside. Sour cream is piped on top with a grape tomato as the cherry and shredded cheese as the sprinkles. The girls’ tacos came out uber cute! Dinner was accompanied by a vanilla cream soda punch (1 part vanilla cream soda, 1 part ginger ale, hefty scoops of vanilla ice cream). Yum!
After Kid Chef Eliana that, made strawberry shortcake cupcakes with fresh strawberries.
They were soooo delicious!
Then it was time to blow out the candle on her birthday cupcake!! Actually, the cupcake she is blowing out is a candle in the middle of mini cupcakes!
Then it was time to open presents. Kid Chef Eliana got a wild new apron!
She also got a sweet little ceramic cupcake with an “E” on top.
I think one of her favorite presents of all was her new Cupcake Cutie Room!!!
After opening presents, we played a game and the girls had a cupcake collage contest. They all voted on their favorite cupcake art. In my opinion, they are all winners!
Then they made chef hats from construction paper and white plastic grocery bags. Adorable young chefs! You can make this chef hat too. Instructions are on Kid Chef Eliana’s website.
Look at Kid Chef Eliana! Love the funky birthday glasses! 🙂
Then it was time to decorate cupcakes that the girls baked earlier. I created a “Cupcake Bar” with different types of frosting, different kinds of sprinkles, and chocolate chips. The girls went to town!
Josie’s cupcakes came out awesome!
After decorating and eating those tasty treats, we did our last craft and activity for the night. They made cupcake bags by decorating colorful canvas bags with bright fabric paint. They came out great and were perfect to tote all of their goodies home the next morning.
It was a fabulous party and the girls had a blast. Cheers to the Cupcake Cuties! Young Chefs Rock!
Until next time…
