Cake Decorating for kids

Cake Decorating for kids.  Yes, it’s messy.

Yes, you need to have about 4 sets of hands (and eyes) to make sure something doesn’t get spilled.

But it’s Summer.

This kids are home and with me 24/7.  It’s hard to take on a major project right now, because life + prep for moving has taken over any other free time possible.

So like we always do, when life gets a little stressful, we bake a cake.

Fun project for the kids!  July 4th pipe cleaner cake toppers
And of course, we had to do a little craft project to decorate the top.  Fuzzy, gold pipe cleaners + a star cookie cutter will help you form the star toppers for your cake.  I of course, handled the glue gun, but she was able to form the stars with just a little help.

On a side note, this gave me a good chance to talk about America to them, and the birthday of our country.  Along with mentioning our personal freedom we have here.  I don’t often talk about this, so it opened up some good conversations between the kids and myself, and of course what’s to come next week being the 4th of  July.

How to make pipe cleaner cake toppers

I am by no means super mom, so this is a box cake mix and box icing.  (Don’t judge)  But it’s something fun for them to do, and assemble together on a rainy Summer day.  Mix the cake, spread the icing, add some sprinkles and some gold fuzzy stars and you’ll have your kids Ooooo & Ahhhhing over their latest creation.

The best part of this, is that no perfection is required.  😉  Just lots of memory making.
