Our good friends' cutie-pie daughter turned five (5!) and wanted to share a celebration with her TK classmates. I was asked to make very simple chocolate cupcakes with brightly colored vanilla frosting. No pink, please. And under explicit instructions, no sprinkles, either. (I believe the teacher feared for non-human critters who might feast on any left-behind sprinkles in the classroom - ick!).
These cupcakes were colorful and festive and fun. Super simple, yes. But perfect for 4- and 5-year-olds gobbling up treats at the end of the school day!
