One of my great joys in life is planning and hosting parties in my home. I don’t even need a good reason. I mean, fun is reason enough, right?
However, I had a very good reason this month. I turned 33 and wanted to celebrate with some good friends. I thought a DIY food bar would be a fun addition. It’s a creative, interactive way to get your guests involved. In the past I’d done roll-your-own sushi, make your own pizza, and an ice cream sundae bar. This time I wanted to do something a little different. So I poked around online and found ideas for a cupcake decoration station.
It was great!
That morning I got busy baking about four dozen chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. I put some aside without frosting them (in case people were into that), and frosted the rest – half the chocolate and vanilla with cream cheese icing and the other half with chocolate.
I put out my favorite toppings: crushed heath bar, oreo cookie crumbles, coconut, chocolate sprinkles, and midnight sparkle icing. And I made up pink, blue, and green icing bags for guests to pipe onto their creations. Here’s the [couldn't-be-simpler] recipe for that.
Lots of delicious fun was had :).
