Cupcakes are great, but many are wondering how this little birthday and school room treat has come to create such a fuss. Not only are cupcake centric eateries springing up across the country, from home-style Magnolia Bakery on the East Coast to Sprinkles in Beverly Hills, but these once quaint cakes are being served everywhere - even at black tie events! It’s no secret that Hollywood’s played a part, featuring cupcake shops in popular television shows, but the glory really goes to these miniature cakes. Take flavor and colors for example. One dessert doesn’t have to mean one flavor and look. A single batch of cupcakes can offer a rainbow of flavors and tinted icings, from lemon to hazelnut, from pretty pastels to vibrant tangerine and hot pink. Cupcakes are doing for many store-front bakeries what 31 Flavors did for ice-cream parlors.
Cupcakes are convenient. Children enjoy them for school parties. You can transport and travel easily with a cupcake. A store bought container is the nicest. Now coming with handles, and perfectly sized can make the look more attractive. With my son, I would not send anything I expected him to return with. So, a cardboard box usually made do. What is nicer at a party than a good looking, festive table? A cake stands alone. Cupcakes can be displayed in so many appealing ways. The latest hit is the cupcake stand. This can be store bought, which comes as a basic stand, or color coordinated. If you cannot find what you are looking for, you can always stack small boxes on top of larger boxes, place several boxes around the table, or even one large box. To color coordinate, you can find wrap paper to match. They can be very elaborate.
Hopefully, I didn’t scare you too much! It wasn’t a decorated cupcake that my daughter refused; just a plain, unfrosted boring one. Load on the frosting to whichever kids cupcakes you decide to make and every toddler will love them! Frosting is a big draw for toddlers. My daughter will lick the frosting off her cupcake first. As soon as she has finished her frosting, I see her eyes immediately travel over to my delicious looking unbitten cupcake! Let your toddler have a lick of the frosting when your making your kids cupcakes; you see what Im talking about! It’s important to take your time and pick out really creative kids cupcakes toddlers really seem to be attracted to the most attractive looking cupcakes.
If you are making cupcakes for a wedding, shower or other elegant event, you may consider purchasing edible flowers to top your cupcakes and make them extra special. Flowers like the English Daisy, Chrysanthemums, Gardenias, Marigolds, Pansies or Roses are all good choices. If you are adding real flowers to adorn your cupcakes, do make sure that the flowers are edible and not poisonous. Another way to add a bit of crunch to your cupcake toppings is with crushed up cereal. Sweetened cereals can be swirled in a food processor or chopped up with your knife (depending how fine you want it) and sprinkled over the top of your cupcake icing to add texture and a little more sweetness. Cereals that you may want to consider are honey-granola types of cereals (that include crunchy bits as well as some types of nuts), and cereals like Alpha Bits, Honey Bunches of Oats or Frosted Flakes.
