I got asked to teach cake decorating at a birthday party last night! I was totally in my element, not only with the cake decorating, but I love to hang out with the young girls. They are always so much fun to be around. I guess it makes me feel young again. My daughter was invited to this party and came home saying it was one of the best parties she had ever been to, so that was great to hear. I think everyone had a good time. I know I did.
At the beginning of the party, each girl got to paint a pot in bright Spring colors (since it was the first day of spring). They got pretty creative, and the pots were all very cute and unique. It was fun to see their personalities come out while painting.
While the adorable pots were drying, the girls were given aprons to decorate. All cake decorators need a good apron!
The girls even posed for a picture sporting their new aprons.
Next, I showed them a few cake decorating techniques using a delicious buttercream frosting, and various tips. I taught them a lot of the basics.
I had sugar cookies on sticks for them to decorate. They all did an AWESOME job. It was fun to see how different all of the cookies were. There sure was a lot of giggling going on.
The end result was phenomenal! The cookie bouquets turned out really well, and everyone had a great time.
