The other day my mom and I were at Homegoods-which is such an awesome place-and we saw Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake Mix. So of course we had to purchase it and I knew that my nieces would absolutely love to help me decorate these strawberry flavored desserts! In fact, Alexis was even Strawberry Shortcake for Halloween!
She’s so cute!
So, I started getting everything ready for our fun afternoon of decorating cupcakes!
First step is to make the batter and pour it in the cupcake wrappers!
Then I had to gather all my sprinkles and put them in a cute little tote that I bought at Target.
And then put the icing in fun containers with different piping tips to make decorating even more fun!
I love these things! I have a ton of them!!
Normally, I never use icing from a can, because I consider it blaspamous, but in this case, it seemed like the best option for cupcake decorating. I was able to warm it and easily pour it into the decorating containers. Plus, these containers came with festive sprinkles so I considered it ok to let it slide this time.
Once the cupcakes were done baking and cooled, I packed up all my supplies because it was time to meet the girls!
We had such a great time decorating the cupcakes although I didn’t do much decorating. It was mostly the girls using their creativity which was so awesome to see! They’re so adorable and I love hanging out with them. Hopefully, next time I go to Homegoods there will be a Thomas the Train cupcake mix so my adorable nephew can join us!
