Cupcakes and Polka Dots 2nd Birthday Party

  • Mischa

    Such a cute idea! A question about the decorating… sometimes it’s hard to get toppings to stick unless you decorate them immediately after applying the icing. Did you use a special frosting recipe, frost them right before guests arrived, or did it just work out?

    Thanks Mischa! I baked all the cupcakes the day before and stored them in air tight containers. Then the morning of the party I whipped up my favorite buttercream icing recipe from Johnny Gabriel’s Cooking in the South cookbook. I frosted them about 3 hours before the party started. The toppings stuck beautifully! Any leftover cupcakes were stored in air tight containers and were still fresh days later.

    Hi! I like what you did on your daughter’s 2nd birthday! Im from the Philippines and have been visiting project nursery for ideas on how to go about my daughter’s 1st birthday.Like you, I have been organizing events (weddings most especially) I’m excited to do my first child’s birthday and you just gave me ideas and inspiration. I don’t need to buy lots of apothecary jars anymore, thanks to you:) I just need to learn how to bake my first real big cake now. You did a nice job on the decorations too.
