It’s been busy at my house. My husband’s been working a lot and the kid’s are busy with school and activities On a recent cold, windy and snowy Sunday I was trying to avoid the inevitable, “Mom, I’m bored”. Now it was time to put my plan into action!
I sent the kids to their room for a bit of quiet reading time so I could quickly bake up a batch of Betty Crocker Gluten Free vanilla cupcakes. A few days prior, I purchased fancy cupcake liners, candies and icing to bake and decorate these fun treats.
I set the table up with all the goodies:
• Betty Crocker Fluffy white icing
• Betty Crocker Decorating icing that came with 4 icing tips(this totally intrigued me)
• Red Cinnamon Hearts
• Conversation hearts
• White and semi sweet chocolate chips
• Coloured course sugar and assorted sprinkles
• One dozen vanilla cupcakes
I also gave them both a plate to work on. Other then a few run away sprinkles that the dog ate we were mess free.
I let them loose to decorate and have fun. They really like activities that require them to use their creativity. They even let me decorate a few.
I think the cupcakes turned out wonderful and they thanked me several times because they had so much fun!
