Cupcake Decorating Party - this is the party of the decade (for under 16s only. We have a similar option for grown ups who would like a cupcake decorating event/party - do call us if you would like details of that). We will bring along to the party 6 premade delicious cupcakes for each child to decorate - there will be plain and chocolate ones! We will also bring along homemade chocolate buttercream and fondant frostings with a choice of food colouring pastes so the children can mix up their own colours, please let us know in advance if you have any colour preferences as we bring along a maximum of 3 options. We can also provide an additive free option using natural fruits such as raspberries to provide a lovely rich pink colour and delicious additional flavour, if you are interested in this option please do let us know as it does incur a small additional charge.
The Cookery Leaders will bring piping bags and nozzles and show the guests how to make swirly whirly icing and cupcake rose icing. They will also be shown how to make sugarpaste roses in different sizes and how to cut sugarpaste shapes. Then it's down to the guests to ice their own cupcakes and have fun with sugarpaste. Their beautiful creations will then be placed into named cake boxes and ribboned up ready to take home.
The party activity lasts for 1 and a half hours, please note that we don't provide food for this option so that will be down to you.
(We are also happy to provide this activity for weddings and other events when you need a group of children entertained for an hour, such as during speeches).
