birthday treats

tomorrow our little girl gets to celebrate her 5th birthday at preschool. this means she gets to bring cupcakes or cookies, something other than the usual healthy snack. only, since we are headed to the pumpkin patch for their first field trip, the teacher suggested i try to convince her to bring something, oh, not as messy as a big frosted cupcake. since we'll be in public. with no sink.




















for her birthday she got a playdoh burger factory and they've been having so much fun making burgers and fries. so when i saw these over at bakerella, i knew they'd be perfect! and they are. oh they are. i used yellow cake mix, brownie mix, and ready made red frosting in a tube. i chose to do the green coconut because honestly? i didn't feel like making any frosting. these may be the easiest & my most favorite cupcakes i've ever made. i was planning to make the sugar cookie fries too, but finally! i know when to say when!




















so here it is, the fun little snack. i threw in some pretzels (note to self - buy new snack for preschool halloween party) and called it quits. i had stamped the bags with a cake and happy birthday but they looked kind of sad. so i grabbed some stickers to brighten them up.













i'm actually ahead of the game! there must be something else i'm forgetting...
