My First Cupcake Decorating Book - Review

Last week I posted about the Died-and-gone-to-Heaven Chocolate layer cake I made for my son’s 6th birthday. We also made cupcakes for him to take to school to celebrate with his class. He decided he wanted to make the cupcakes from scratch out of My First Cupcake Decorating Book by CICO Kids.

This book is geared for ages 7+ with 35 fun ideas for decorating cupcakes, cake pops, brownies cookies etc. It includes recipes for vanilla and chocolate cupcakes along with brownies, a couple cookies recipes and frosting.

I think once my children learn to read better they will love this book even more than they already do; they love all the photos. I love that it is big print, with big numbers for the steps and lots of pictures. It is a lot of fun for children to look through this book. Each “project” have simple straight forward steps (usually 6 or less, some are a bit more advanced).

My daughter has a list of cupcakes she would like to make from this book and I am sure we will be working on them over the summer. My son decided he didn’t want to do anything fancy with his cupcakes but wanted to use the chocolate recipe from the book, green icing and sprinkles.
We went to work on making the cupcakes and found it was very simple to make. We did use store bought icing and tinted it green with food coloring. Then P took some orange sprinkles and decorated 24 cupcakes for class. 
When P got home I asked him right away how everyone liked the cupcakes and he replied that everyone loved them and kept telling him thank you. I read P's communication book which said the same thing and that all the kids broke out into a Happy Birthday song!
