What is it the one thing summer babies miss out on because their parents had nothing better to do sometime between September and November?
They don’t get to celebrate their birthday during the school year. Their friends forget about their birthday party because school is out, or they just don’t show up because they’re at their cabin or something equally as important during the summer.
But then, because your child’s teacher wants to give each student their own special day, you find out summer babies are allowed to bring in cupcakes towards the end of the school year. So naturally, your almost 4 year old asks for Iron Man cupcakes.
He couldn’t have asked for vanilla cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles or any of the cupcakes from any of the handfuls of parties you have designed. That would be too easy.
- Red & white cookie icing
- Hand cookie cutter
- Red velvet cupcakes with red frosting
- Batch of hand shaped sugar cookies
- Gold sprinkles
- (Optional) Frosting gun
I started Iron Man’s hand by creating the repulsor with white cookie icing.
Followed by filling in the rest of the hand with red cookie icing and a toothpick. I’m sure there is a legit decorating tool for smooshing the colors together, but the quality created with the poor man’s tool satisfies small children just fine.
While the cookies are drying, top the red velvet cupcakes with red frosting and gold sprinkles.
To prevent any accidental tips or soggy sugar cookies, wait until just before the Avengers party to place the cookies on top of the cupcake. Iron Man’s hands are heavy enough that you will need to brace them with something like a toothpick.
And if you are planning a party to pre-game before Captain America: Civil War, you should probably make some Captain America cupcakes. And it wouldn’t hurt to serve the Iron Man and Captain America themed drinks featured in this Avengers party.
