School Cupcakes Help Make Learning Fun!

Limited school budgets are tasking on teachers and educators looking to help inspire students in the classroom. This spring parents are joining together to host bake sales for school classroom funds to help teachers buy school supplies. Why not host your own school bake sale by creating school themed cupcakes and other baked goods? These playful school themed cupcakes are a great way to involve kids with a meaningful activity.

Help out your local school district by donating school supplies, hosting a bake sale and other fundraising activities. Car washes and bake sales are time honored traditions in some communities and provide funds for teachers to buy much needed supplies. Instilling the value of hard work and fundraising into children is a great way to involve them in their education. Help kids learn how to count money and other important education lessons by challenging them to trivia problems along the way. While decorating cupcakes and measuring cupcake ingredients, teach kids basic addition and fractions. And when they receive cash in return for their baked goods, help them count the money. Cupcakes are good for more than just snacking if you use them as an educational tool for fundraisers and lessons! Don’t forget to add a festive cupcake wrapper for a decorative flair!

 

Back to School: Cupcake Ideas for 2011 School Year!

So kids are starting to go back to school this week and I’m brainstorming ways to make it fun and enjoyable. I’ve come up with a game plan.

I know you’re thinking mini cupcakes might be overdone… But not when they look like these awesome studious ideas, especially when you decorate them with our brand new selection of Mini Gingham Cupcake Wrappers!

Back to School DIY: Homemade Hostess Cupcakes!


Faux Hostess Cupcake

So we were brainstorming school-theme cupcake ideas for fall and Hostess Cupcakes came across our minds like a giant neon sign. I Googled Hostest Cupcake to find this juicy quote:

You get a big delight in every bite.” Florida resident Suzanne Rutland clearly agrees. She’s reportedly eaten more than 50,000 Hostess CupCakes, as many as four per day since her early childhood when she founded a Hostess CupCake Club. “Creamy” was the secret password.” (Quote from Hostesscakes.com)

Well, aside from the obsessive fan, this quote is so true because you certainly do get a delight in every bite. Although personally I feel this is true with cupcakes in general. So, why spend the money on packaging when you can make the cupcakes yourself! I found this simple recipe for Faux Hostess Cupcakes online at 52kitchenadventures.com. These cupcakes are the perfect chocolate cupcake for our new mini cupcake wrappers! If each cupcake has a brightly colored cupcake wrapper they look fun and playful. Or keep it simple with some Espresso Cupcake Wrappers. These would be perfect for an afternoon bridal shower or outdoor picnic. If you’re baking them for your kids to take back to school with them this fall try putting them in a Cupcake Dome for safe traveling. You’ll be the talk of the town and all the kids will want to hang out at your house for homemade Hostess cupcakes!
