I have done this kinda of thing with my neices. They decorated the small stand-up teddy bears (one for each child). I made different color icing bags with tips and put twist ties (off bread bags)on each icing bag to keep the icing from coming out. Works great.

What I've done for kiddie birthday parties is bake a bunch of 4in cakes and then I put some white frosting and spatulas out on the tables. I put colored frosting in decorator bags but I put a rubber band on the end, after I twist it a few time, I fold then end of the bag over and pull the rubber band around that... if that makes sense. KID PROOF! Works Great!

I have a picture somewhere....

Oh great idea. I think it would be a hit with kids of all ages. My grandchildren love to decorate and I've even caught my husband with my bag a time or two. icon_biggrin.gif He says he's just helping them but they say PawPaw give us the bag back. icon_smile.gif

I could see where you could probably use many of the Wilton singles pans to corrolate (sp?) with your party. The shapes would lend themselves to different holidays, and it is the same amount of batter.

Another alternative to frosting 'bags' could be ice cream scoops. On the cupcake throwdown with Bobby Flay, the competitor did this to frost her cupcakes and it worked like a charm!

There are quite a few cupcake-bakeries offering this. I know that Love Cafe in Washington, DC offers a bar, and Jilly's Cupcake Bar in St. Louis does as well.

check out this website: www.thecupcakebaraustin.com to get some ideas on how to make it work.

Good idea but I agree with some of the other posters, hygiene is going to be your biggest issue. It could get pretty gross with the finger licking and general spillage.

this is funny, I started this thread, no one responded so i gave up on it, then i jsut logged on and i saw it on the home page.
Anyway,
it was for a friend, so she made the cupcakes and i made chocolate, strawberry and champagne. then she provided TONS of different sprinkles.
this is what i learned:
If i make the icing, i make the cupcakes
for an additional fee i will cake-tend
I was thinking of offering this to brides.
i can have flowers made ahead of time and we can have sprinkles match the decor. it was fun but what a mess. All the kids where squeezing wrong and all the icing was coming out of the top. My other thought was not to use bags if they are going to do it by themselves, but rather a decorating thing like wilton or pamperedchef sell, it has a lid and you pull a trigger.

When I was younger my mom did this for me. She set up a table with a bunch of tinted frostings, and all different toppings. Then baked a bunch of cupcakes. Enough that everyone could decorate and eat one at the party, and take one home. Everything was disposable, the containers, the tablecloth, the tools, so when we were done destroying it (like every kids party would do) she just wrapped it up and tossed it away. It was by far the most memorable birthday party I had as a kid!
