This always reminds me of that part in Sarah Jessica Parker’s movie “I don’t know how she does it” – the bake sale where she buys s store made pie and attempts to make it look “homemade” lol Link from the movie .Well this is my SJP scene, I make/use this method at almost every party and I tell you they winners.
This was once of those finds that comes by chance.It was the boys cowboy birthday party and I was attempting the mommy-juggling-act-of-note , baking , sewing up hobby horses(the kids party favours) the decor you name it, it was on my list.In the weee hours before the party my perfect cupcakes were over baked (nice way to say burnt) and rock hard.
Instead of panicking I got up early went to my closest PnP and bought these queen cakes (they come 10 in a container) and then it was just a matter of icing them.
I have to admit, it’s been the easiest thing – a cake and candy sale (sorted✔️) , a Valentines class party (sorted✔️) , The list goes on and on and like I said previously everyone loves them.
The added bonus is the fact that my kitchen doesn’t look like a bakers explosion and I’m not up baking and icing whilst everyone is in bed.
So the next time your child tells you at the last minute they need Cupcakes for school or you’ve had a baking disaster head over to your closest Pick n Pay.Nobody will think any less of you.
All you will then need is butter,icing sugar, food colouring and a few sprinkles.
