Cupcake decorating for kids - Upstart magazine

I was honoured to be asked by Upstart magazine to create a bullet point article aimed at kids aged 7-12 years for cupcake decorating.

-->

I had fun creating the cupcakes in the article. The article forms part of a combined giveaway with Whipple & Bell Tea. There's a big Kiwicakes prize pack too!.

Upstart magazine has a circulation of 20 000 copies, distributed via retail outlets & primary/intermediate schools. It is also the inflight magazine for children on Air NZ domestic and trans-Tasman flights.


If you'd like to win a copy of this issue for your child. Leave me a comment here on this blog post, with the age of the child you'd like to give it to. Make sure I have a way of contacting you, if you win.

    My boys would love this magazine - they're always wanting to decorate with me! They are 9 and 7 years old and currently crazy about cupcakes.

  5. Hi there! As much as I would love to win this for my 4 yr old side-kick cake and cupcake decorator,alas shes too young! But I know my 11 yr old neice "Taina" would really enjoy reading this. She is an awesome help to her mum (who suffers from an illness) and she loves to make cupcakes! She does all the baking and cleans the kitchen all on her own, she even baked her mum a birthday cake and cleaned the entire kitchen all on her own when she was 10 as her mum slept. This is something I know she would really enjoy. Cheers for the opportunity! Krystel

  9. Would love to spend some time baking with my young cousins (girls aged 3 & 6, boys 7 & 8). Even though the girls are a bit young half the fun of baking is making a mess (and licking the bowl/spoon)! Thanks! Sunday@surf.co.nz

  12. Hi, my daughter would love the pictures in this magazine and it would give me heaps of ideas for our upcoming Playcentre Cupcake fundraiser. My children are 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 while the children I deal with at Playcentre are up to 6. They all also have older siblings so it would be a great resource for us to have available. My contact details are donna_carswell@hotmail.com. Thanks heaps for the chance to win! :)

  18. My just turned 8 year old daughter has egg & dairy allergies so every year I've had to bake her birthday cakes & cupcakes. She's a regular at the kitchen bench with me anytime there is baking to be done - I don't even have to ask if she wants to help! I know she'd love this book for even more ideas for her cupcakes and will have great fun trying them out:)
