I live in NC and we're supposed to be affected by the hurricane this weekend....well....my son's 2nd birthday party is on Saturday at 3:00pm which is supposed to be a POOL PARTY!! So...I didn't have ANY indoor plans at all. The theme is "Elmo" and I'm decorating the Elmo charachter pan where he's holding the present & ice cream cone and he's wearing a Bday hat. I'm also making ice cream cone cupcakes to go with the cake so that there's more cake for the adults. The only game that I have is Pin-the-nose-on-Elmo. The kids are 1.5/2/2/3/5/7/8.5/11.5 in age, and they're boys & girls, so I was REALLY stumped on how to entertain them indoors w/out using the tv.

So....I decided earlier today to have a cupcake decorating party with the ice cream cone cupcakes. I'm hoping that all of the kids will enjoy this. I'm just going to use decorating bags/tips, spreading knives, and sprinkles. I figure that this is better than just playing the game and then going home.

That is a great idea for an indoor party I have that problem in January too nothing can be done outside and for every game there is a prize to give $$$$$$ Oklahoma can be cold in January most of the time so no pinatas either hope this works for you. One question I wonder should I ici the cakes for the leave them alone for them to ice them or crumb coat them only?

Sorry guys, just found this thread.

I do kid's cake decorating BD parties. I charge $20.00 per child. Each child gets a 6" cake to decorate with a take-home box. I supply the frosting, tips, spatulas, and bags. I also show them how to make tootsie roll roses. This is very popular here and I usually have 2 a month.

I do limit the class to 15 children.

For boys--we make a hamburger cake with cookie for the hamburger pattie. Girls--anything neon and with roses.

cakedecor---With both of the parties I did, I iced the cakes first and just let the girls do the borders, decorating,ect. The girls that these parties were for were 8 & 6, so it was easier for them to just decorate.[/quote]

I thought of that because I did not want their cakes to look crappy kids can decorate but they are not very good at icing that's a good idea about the hamburguer

Yah, I would say definitely have them iced... otherwise you've got a big old mess on your hands! At least with the frosting bags it's a little bit contained. But give them a bowl and a knife and you MAY end up sorry! icon_lol.gif

That's another reason mini cakes and cupcakes are a good choice, too. they can cover them with decorations like stars or whatever and not have to worry about icing it. And you can find all sorts of mini cake shaped pans now.

I plan on having my cakes base iced, so all the kids have to do is decorate. I think this will be the easiest and least stressful for me and the kids! My daughter loves to decorate, but gets very frustrated icing the cake!

Mac: ...thanks for the tootsie roll roses tip! What a great idea. Do you make them just like a modeling chocolate or fondant rose? A few details, please! I have not seen a rose done like this, sounds very interesting, my daughter would love to try this!!!!

Yes--you just squish the tootsie roll to get it more pliable and do it just like fondant roses. Make the center (like a birthday party hat-Itel the kids).Then pinch off smaller pieces and flatten/ Press bottom of piece to center piece. Nothing else needed, it's sticky enough. Repeat until it looks like a rose. Or you could just roll it for the ribbon-type rose.
