Pony Party Cupcakes
Horse-theme birthday cupcakes
Hey cupcake, saddle up for fun with horsey cupcakes.
- Hold your horses! Round up your horsey cupcakes and put them inside a toy
fence to create a paddock or cupcake corral. Or make your own corral for a pony
birthday cake using a cardboard box, some sticks and your imagination. Cut a
cardboard box low to make a tray, then construct a fence gluing tongue
depressors or Popsicle sticks. Breyer makes the wood fence, right, but Melissa
and Doug has a sturdy wooden stable in two sizes. Wilton's cupcake critter feet,
right, gives this little horsey a lift.
How to make the cupcake corral:
- Start with a large cardboard box and cut the edges down low to create
the tray. Now you're ready to build up the fence.
- Glue tongue depressors into a fence (wood glue works best). You only
need two rows of tongue depressors to make the fence. If you have extra
sticks, you can glue them to hide the edges of the box and make a shelf.
- Now you're ready to affix a few artificial flowers and a bit of "tack" that
you have from your child's Horse toys (such as a saddle, a rope, a mini
bucket). The great thing about the cupcake display is that your kids will
want to play with it after the party.
Cupcake frosting Ideas
- Give cupcakes an ethereal look, tear a bit of blue cotton candy to make a
dreamy cloud accent that will send the kids to fairyland. Try pink cotton candy for
a pink cowgirl party, or My Little Pony party.
