Baking Party

Baking Party!
We just had a girls's play date and wanted to have a fun activity....
Baking....This could be a fun Birthday Party or an afternoon activity. This was easy to throw together, it doesn't have to have matching napkins, etc. (I happen to have an obsession with party supplies!), just round some friends up and bake.

I saw this idea from a "fancy" party...added a cupcake wrapper rose to a store bought paper chef hat (bought at Party City)

ribbon with cupcake wrappers attached by glue dots...simple and cheap

Note the "Bake and Destroy" t-shirt bought from etsy a couple of years ago!
Pink Lemonade with sliced lemons makes any day a party...

We made Layered Cookie Mixes and baked cookies...

These cookies came out perfect and make the prettiest take home gift.
We used Easter M&M' pretty


the Labels's and baking instructions from Bakerella!

The hats were a hit, they laughed at first but didn't want to take them off!
Happy Baking!
