Crazy themed celebrations at the preschool our two youngest children attend are not a surprise to us anymore. They sure keep learning fun! To mark April Fools day a Mad Hatters tea party was held in a beautifully decorated garden. The high tea was complete with china cups & saucers and of course marvellous cupcake creations.
The kids cupcake station was a world of colour and fantasy with buttercream to swirl then a buffet of decorations, sprinkles and edible spray paint to choose from. Able parents were on hand to assist but we found that the preschoolers were super capable anyway! Kiwicakes donated some magical topping products for us to use.
The firm icing discs (being pointed to by a cute, chubby finger no less!) are made from coloured fondant hardened with tylose powder and rolled out with impression mats. A floral texture is especially visible on the pink heart, and mini cutters were used to shape the discs. These were made the night before to give them time to firm up.
The variation achieved was just beautiful and so fitting of Mad Hatter style!
And finally here is my littlest monster Mitchell being assisted by our good friend Kimmie. Yay for edible fun!!
