These parties are slightly different than our Children's Cupcake Parties as we are catering for a younger age group.
We felt that a 2 hour class would be too long for little ones, so these classes last just 1 hour. We also felt that using small sprinkles wouldn't be such a good idea, so instead bring sweets to decorate the cupcakes! We bring smarties, jelly tots, haribo, jelly beans etc; the children love seeing all their favourite sweets in little dishes on the table. Finally, instead of using cutters and embossers with our sugarpaste, we bring moulds so that the children can easily press the sugarpaste into the mould to make fabulous 3D shapes such as dinosaurs etc.
We arrive and cover your table with our premium quality tablecloth and place-mats. We have tiny disposable aprons for the children and ensure hand sanitiser is passed around. Each child is given a box of 6 undecorated "just baked" cupcakes.
To avoid undue mess and "accidents" we ask the children to take just 3 cupcakes out of their boxes. We then assist the children in piping buttercream.
Once this has been done, the children are left to get creative using all the sweeties!
It is so rewarding to observe them concentrating and enjoying decorating the cupcakes.
The children feel so proud of their achievements and this process helps them with hand/eye co-ordination, creativity and captures their imagination.
Once the 3 cupcakes have been decorated, we ask the children to take the final 3 out of the box, assisting them to place the completed ones into the box for safe-keeping.
Finally, before the children decorate their last cupcakes with sweeties, we unleash the moulds and coloured sugarpaste! All the children take turns to push the sugarpaste into the mould to create some amazing 3D animals and characters. We also assist them to use a simple Teddy Bear cutter, so they get the chance to use 2 different cake decorating tools.
Once the children have finished decorating their cupcakes, we help to carefully box them up. Aprons are removed and Achievement Certificates are handed to each child. The birthday girl or boy also receives a card and gift.
As you can see from my photographs, there are BOYS as well as girls at the party. In my experience with children, ages 3-8 especially, boys enjoy the experience just as much as girls.
You will also notice that there isn't any mess! Because the children are shy and we are using sweets not sprinkles, there simply isn't any mess at all. I still ensure everything is wiped clean and that the customer is happy with their kitchen or dining room before leaving.
