High Heel Cupcake Fun

Sunday, November 11, 2012

A couple months ago I had the opportunity to share my love of cupcakes with a creative group of 3rd graders.  They were Brownie Troop 2304 and their fearless leader, Annie, asked me to come in and do a cupcake project with the girls.  I had seen these high heel cupcakes online but had never attempted them on my own.  I thought they would be the perfect cupcakes to make with the girls.  The one above is the demo I made to show the girls.  I also prepped the graham cracker "soles" ahead of time. 

While the girls handled a few Brownie Troop orders of business, I set up the spread of cupcakes, soles and heels along with any kind of sprinkle you could think of.  What happened next was amazing.  I sat back and watched the girls create every color of frosting under the sun and proceed to make some of the most fabulous high heels I've ever seen! 

Now I'm far from a type A personality but when it comes to cupcakes, I'm pretty precise.  I tend to go for the perfect swirl with symmetric looking sprinkles, trying to achieve perfection.  I could learn something from these girls.....sometimes you just need to let the creativity flow!  Get sticky with frosting and there is never "too much" frosting or "too many" sprinkles.

The best part, I was given a cupcake decorating badge.  That might not seem like a big deal to you, but I was never a Brownie or Girl Scout so I never had the opportunity to earn the badges.  I was always jealous of the sashes full of badges. 
This was such a fun night.  I'm excited to do it again with a Girl Scout group next month.  It will be just in time, to give me another little reminder to let go and have fun.  Let the frosting fly and get creative.  I can't wait to see what the next group comes up with.

I would have loved a project like this, when I was a kid. I was never a scout, either, so I totally get the badge thing. My older sister was, and I coveted her sash and badges like crazy!
