Look what we made!
Yes, really. Those are mini-cupcakes. One hundred and eighteen of them.
We made more, but the dog got them. After we took pictures he managed to get some more. Thank goodness we got the pictures of the completed table first! Does he look guilty? Not so much.
This little guy made off with a couple too. He was so pleased with himself. He’d only just learned that he can reach the table. The first one he grabbed he was off as fast as his little toddler feet could carry him. Afraid I’d take it away, I guess. Then he stopped to inspect his prize and the delight on his face as he had his first mouthful was so adorable. Toddlers are wonderful. (And infuriating, but that’s another post!)
Am I crazy? Maybe. We didn’t make them all in one day. Two different days of baking, one day for icing, one more day for the writing.
I used cupcake mix from a box, chocolate and vanilla. The writing icing was the kind that comes in a tube. The kids did much of the writing. All things that made the process a little easier.
The bad thing? Mini-cupcakes are bite-size. Which means before you know it you’ve eaten quite a few. 😉
These are not perfect. But so much fun.
Great activity to go with The Elements curriculum that we are using right now. What do you think? Do you see a cupcake periodic table in your future? 🙂
