  1. I really liked the idea of letting the kids decorate their own cupcakes instead of just doing it myself. I have loads of sprinkles and decorative frosting that I could use. My daughter loves art so she wants a party based around it. I’ll definitely have to try some of these ideas. I wonder if my daughter has any ideas in mind.
