I was really excited and chuffed to be asked to bake 50 cupcakes for my friend’s little girl’s 5th birthday party. Being the mum of boys I LOVE getting to do girly things every now and again.
Thankfully my mum was in town to give me a hand with the order. She kept the kids out of my hair and did all the washing up – LEGEND!!!!
Lola wanted an array of multi-coloured swirly cupcakes but her mum held the decorations Birthday cupcakesback for the kids to adorn the cakes themselves as a party acitivity – great idea!
Here they are before the kids got their hands on them. I used a vanilla sponge and buttercream with gel colouring.
The cakes went down really well at the party… and kept the guests occupied for a little while at least! My friend was totally frazzled by the end of it, but I was pleased I could at least take the pressure of baking birthday cupcakes off her list of tasks!
