  1. I love this idea! Great for simple, yet very effective dramatic play props… plus could be used when singing the “5 Cup Cakes in the Baker Shop” song! I need to go and make some mini cup cakes and start playing! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Carly…..thank you for your lovely comment!

    We must be very alike because you share the same thoughts as me! 🙂 You are absolutely right about these being an effective imaginative play prop and I will soon be sharing my girls playing little bakers with these cupcakes and singing the song “10 Mini Cupcakes in a Baker’s Shop”. Wonderful! Thanks for stopping by!


  3. Great Idea Janice
    These are such an easy messy free thing to do.
    You could make these birthday cupcakes as a craft for a party. I’ve started collecting caps already!
