Thank you so much Kelly, Courtney, and Mariah for sharing your cupcake making talents to this week's Dare to Share!

Even More Cupcakes to Enjoy 

Several years ago I started serving cupcakes at our at my children's parties.  I found that they were easier to make, and faster to serve when you have several impatient children who want cake.  Here are some of our favorite cupcakes we have had at our parties in the past. 

Flower Cupcakes made with gum drops

I once made these Flower Cupcakes for a friend who shares her birthday with my son (Happy Birthday R!)  Flowers were a great theme for late April and upcoming Mother's Day holiday.  

rainbow cupcakes

These Cloud Cuckooland Cupcakes were made for a Lego themed party.  They would also be good for a rainbow or St. Patricks Day party.  

Kitten cupcakes for a cat themed party

 My daughter loved her Kitten Cupcakes at her cat themed party.  

Lion Cupcakes, Elephant Cupcakes, Monkey Cupcakes

At her Zoo Animal Party we had cupcakes that looked like Elephant, Lions, and Monkeys. 

Cupcakes with edible butterflies

At one of our most recent parties,  Kara's Butterfly Party, we used edible butterflies that looked like the real thing.  

Do you prefer cake or cupcakes at your parties?
