Juicy Lucy loves to cook and her favorite food is cupcakes of course. I wanted to integrate a fun activity into her birthday party so naturally decorating cupcakes came to mind. While this is nothing new to the 4-year-old birthday scene, it worked perfectly and she was all smiles.

A local boutique bakery, Dolce Baking Company, offered to host the party at the bakery after hours. Dolce set up pink, hot pink and white glittery icing, tons of sprinkles and each girl got their own mini spatula from Sur la Table to take home. After decorating, they decorated the cupcake boxes with stickers and stamps -the perfect take home gift for our guests (plus this kept them from eating cupcakes). The birthday cake was of course a giant cupcake (chocolate with pink icing....what else?).

This was such a fun way to get the girls to be creative and work together (without sprinkles stuck to my floors for the next year).

Thanks Brandi!
