My grandchildren enjoy watching the TV cooking competition called Nailed It. If you haven't heard of it, it involves contestants who have no skills trying to make and decorate desserts that look like a professionally prepared example. The results are often funny (or alarming)! Thinking of ways to stay connected with our family, we had the idea of doing our own cupcake decorating competition in our own family by decorating cupcakes and taking pictures and putting them up for you, our readers, to vote on!
Here were the rules of the competition:
So, please, do us a favor and in the comments vote for your favorite cupcakes! The kids group has a number on each picture and the adults have a letter. We appreciate your participation!
Kid's Challenge (you may be surprised at the ages of who did what! I am so impressed with all of them.)
Adult Challenge (We all joined the fun!)
This was a fun way for our family to stay connected even though most of us have to stay apart. I also think it would be a lot of fun to do with a youth group which has to meet on line instead of together or with a group of friends who can't meet for lunch right now. You could do it with whole cakes or cookies, too. The best part of the challenge was after we decorated them, we ate them!
Thanks for your votes! I hope you give this virtual activity a try!
