Emma was thrilled with these simple yet “fancy” birthday cupcakes we made for her fifth birthday party. The vase of flowers was made using a silicone mold (purchased for $3.99 at the Christmas Tree Shops); the number 5 was made using regular silicone cupcake holders (like these). Then we dipped them in a chocolate sauce made by heating heavy cream and adding in chocolate chips, dipped the flowers in sprinkles, and topped them with butterflies and dinosaurs made using this butterfly chocolate mold and this dinosaurs chocolate mold.
All three kids helped make the cupcakes. Emma chose to do the measuring, and Lily and Johnny were very good about taking turns stirring.
Johnny was immensely pleased with the result, as was the birthday girl!
