Here were the rules of the competition:
- We didn't judge on the baking of the cupcakes. Some of us used cupcakes and one of us used corn bread! As long as it was the size of a cupcake, that is all that mattered.
- Instead of having one item to copy, we just gave a theme instead. For our contest, everyone had to decorate their cupcake to look like a puppy.
- Everyone could choose what they wanted to use to decorate with (candies, cookies, sprinkles, etc.) but if you used fondant, you had to make your own. (No one chose to use fondant! lol)
- We ended up with 2 groups of contestants, an adult group and a children's group. Our children's group ranged in age from almost 2 years to almost 9 years of age. If you had more kids participating, you could break the age groups up into like age ranges. But, this is just for fun, so we aren't too concerned.
Thanks for your votes! I hope you give this virtual activity a try!
