For activity day today we had a mini lesson on how to decorate cakes- using cupcakes. I showed the girls a few library books filled with inspirational photos of amazing cakes. Then a dear neighbor taught the girls a few of the basics, how to fold and fill a parchment bag, how to make stars and some simple borders. They were able to practice and then take their creations home to share with their families.
This project was a bit advanced for my younger girls- they were happy just decorating with sprinkles- I had fun- I think they did too!
